I got a 79' Stars/Stripes... It came with a white fiberglass swim deck . But I want a nice wood one...

I can refinish it if need be - but I need something to start with...

Any ideas where I can find one???

Good luck. I just did this to my boat. It is ALOT bigger project then you will think it is. More then likely you will have to find a scrap boat get the teak off of the boat and resize it. You will then need to make brackets for your boat.....which involves ALOT of measuring. You will have to fill all of the holes from your fiberglass platform which is roughly 10 i beleive then redrill more wholes for your brackets. When you take the platform off and put the new one on you will need to take that gas tank out as well for access. Good like finding a platform i got lucky.....

Fiberglass Swim Deck is made of fiberglass like the boat hull/deck and a Teak Deck is made of teak wood. Teak World, Lebenon, TN, 1-615-444-7269 can make you one.

I went to my local MC dealer and picked up an new non-current platform off of PS209.
We cut it down to match the stern shape and here's how it turned out-

Wow, that looks really nice. I wish I could find one!!! Mine should be easier too as my transom is flat/straight, no curve to it...

You sure there is no curve. Put an edge to it and you might be surprised.
