Anyone know where I cn get one for my BIL's X-10? The part that screws into the teak is what I'm looking for. My Nephew was ****ing around on the SeaDoo and (YES he did) clipped the swim platform and actally broke the casting......

Where and how much if anyone can't point me in the right direction?

Cool! I would have liked to have heard the "conversation" that took place after that little faux paus...

Call your dealer, Erk, Jim, Mike, or Lex at Rambo..I think it's gotta come out of the MasterCraft system. Failing that, getting it welded is likely to be a cheaper route, and maybe quicker.

It broke into three pieces and one of the three is missing. The local dealer offered to sell the entire platform but no bracket:(

Worst case scenerio, if the brackets are identical have someone make one or a pair, using the good one as a pattern, then use the old one as a spare.
Anyone there at your mfg. facility who would be willing to do some government work, a nice set of polished S/S brackets would be killer!

Might want to be careful with the strength of the replacement material if you go this route. I would much rather have the bracket fail first before it transfers the "force" onto the boat.

I had a little pi$$ ant do that with his wave runner to mine. Fortunately, no damage except to his britches and ego when his mommy and daddy heard about it.

Try these people. They make the lift off brackets for most of the manufacturers and they're very helpful. Not cheap though.

Alloy Marine is the contact info I got from MC for OEM brackets for MasterCraft boats. They may have a new supplier, but I doubt it.

$35.00 per hour is our burden rate but like TMC said it's a government project and the material was made from "drops" :D

NICE WORK!!!.....

Question, I bought new brackets for my 205V this year and I think I paid ~$150 for the pair.

How come your brackets were so much more expensive?
