Can anyone tell me where to purchase more of the little spring pins that hold the swim platform on? I took my platform off today and left the pins on the back of the trailer. Who knows where they are now.

Nevermind. Found them. Found out they are called "swim platform pins". Home Depot, Tractor Supply or the net should have them. Thanks for the help!

Buy 2 stainless steel lanyards and fasten them to the platform frame. You won't lose them again! That is what I did when I lost them the last (first) time.

these work well in a pinch, and like you found out.... they are readily available at tractor supply and home depot, etc.

Also Lowes and Orchard carry them as well.

Just make sure they are stainless or keep an eye on them.
The PO of my boat must have lost one of the stock pins, here is what I found.
Stocker is mint, replacement, not so much.

I too had an issue in finding the SS spring pins like in the picture above...My only solution was it go to a Supra/Moomba dealer and purchase the pins from them. They are standard equipment on the SC boats and the dealership keeps them in stock.

Actually, I was able to find the main pin in the driveway. The second one was just a SS bolt anyway, so this is just an excuse to get an additional one. I may just end up going to a dealer. The platform has one pin in for now and I still have a good month before the water will be high enough to get the boat in anyway.

Tell those guys to start a dealership in SE Wisconsin. I think they kind of overdo the shipping. I'll have to go with SS screws and like it. I would like to stay with the originals but can't find them here. The regular clevis pins are only plated.
