Last summer I saw an 07 x-star with a standup jet ski on the swim platform. They weigh around 300-350 lbs. What are your opinions on this? Do you think it would hurt the platform to carry one of these small jet skis across the lake? It's the equivalent of two average sized people standing on it.

300-350lbs, is less than two average size adults. At least in Texas. :cool:

Weight would be distributed better in this case. Stand-up laid cross ways, would be setting over, both support brackets.

A 1989 prostar will hold a 1/2 keg of coors.

Is that Banquet style or Coors Light?

I'm thinkin that the weight would not be an issue, but if it were banging around back there while doing power turns it wouldn't be good for the gel. I might suggest cobbling together some sort of lift that would suspend it above the transom (like a tender (sp?)). THAT would be cool as CRAP!!!!!!!

Keep in mind, generally you don't have two men standing on the platform while driving. Probably fine on a smooth water, might be a concern in the chop.

Planning on carrying my standup across the lake this weekend on the platform of our '02 X9.

Not planning on much chop, or any crazy maneuvers or doing it very often.

Ok here is the proof that a 89' prostar platform will hold the weight of a keg. These photos were taken in the early 90's the girl is a buddys x. nice hair!

I noticed the keg is tied to the boat and the ex is not. Based on what you are saying, the keg should've ridden in the boat and the ex should've been tied to the platform ;)
