View Full Version : Another platform question. Mounts?

05-01-2007, 01:54 PM
After reading the "My platform fell off" thread, remainded me of something I need to fix.
On my boat, one of the transom mounts for the platform is missing the bottom 2 screws that mount to the transom. There are no holes in the boat there (never had screw in it) and the boat does not appear to have been repaired there (ie: holes covered up).
Are the screws/bolts that hold the brackets on thru bolts, or lag screws into the boat?

Looks like it's been this way forever and has held up for 3 yrs for me this way, but I can see it move a bit when water pushes the platform up. Don't want to be writing my own " Platform ripped off of bote" thread.

Mine are through bolted with locknuts and AL plates on the backside. You should be able to see the upper bolts and just copy how they are done.

Be sure those bottom holes are above the bilge/floor before you drill the holes. it would not be good to go between the hull and liner.
