I have asked this question before in other threads and not received a response. Does anyone know when swim platforms became an option or standard on MC's? I have a 75 S & S and had to add, but that doesn't mean it wasn't avail. back then?????

I can't believe that all of the MC freaks out there and nobody knows this one? Not even a comment on how I lured you in to think you were going to see teak. Teak, the word is like our porn here, come on guys.

Even in '85, a platform at all was an option. I don't know when platforms became standard. I can't figure out how people got in the boats w/o them. A ladder has never been an option that I know of. It was on old Correct Crafts.

Observers would hang a hook ladder over the side of the boat to assist the skier with getting in the boat.
Unless you were built like Jeff Rodgers and you could muscle your way in... anyone else see him press himself up the side of the boat without hesitation after his slalom run in 98(?) Masters?

You may want to e-mail gregory.clower@mastercraft.com and ask the question.
I don't know the answer, except that on our '89 it was standard as stated in the brochure. Quite possibly it became standard in 1987 when the ProStar 190 model was introduced.

Thanks, TMCNO1. I think I will send him an e-mail. I'll let everyone know what I find out, if I do find out. I tried the entry w/o the platform and ladder. I could do it, not fun and sometimes hard on the shins. My ski partner had no hope. I swear we almost capsised it with two guys pulling him in one morning. Imediately started working on the platform. The ladders are just dorky.
