Hello Newbie here trying to find some valuable info.

Where do you guys go for custom swim platforms and platform brackets?

Contact Brent Lemke at Boat Country, he has custom composite platforms.


Good Luck

Spoke with Brent this evening, BTW: Great Guy, but I'm needing a different style than what he's making. Anybody know of some teak platform builders? Or, "cost competitive" aluminum platforms?

why not buy a teak swim plat from say a mastercraft dealer the 04-05 x-30 plat is one of the best looking ones I have seen.

Try a local dealer - mine is Ski World, Pleasanton - see if they have any old ones in storage / back of the lot / leftovers / etc... The fiberglass are becoming popular so I would imagine dealers may have extra teaks? Maybe even just head down n get the measurements & make your own??? Good Luck

Travis, My name is Tim Cross, and I am a finish carpenter. I recently built my own swim platform out of Brazilian Cherry. I would build you one if you would like. I will try to post a pic. I can do whatever you like. I inserted a trap door to access the wedge on my Malibu. Let me know what you think. I can use any kind of hardwood you like (teak). Send me an e-mail to timcross807@msn and I will send the attachments pics. I am not able to upload the pics. at this time.

never mind - it's the new stuff that is replacing the ACQ wood. Made out of recycled plastics, right?
