Does anyone know where I can find prices and options on changing my wood platform to a fiberglass platform?

Bump....I have the same question. Can you buy replacement swim platforms?

Thanks!

My suggestion would be to contact your local MC Dealer and inquire there. They are the only ones I know where you can get an fiberglass swim platform.

That being said, if they don't make them, and you have the existing platform, you could find a local fiberglass guy. They can make a mold using the existing platform and then fabricate one from that.

Can I ask why you want to change? I was thinking the teak would be much better wearing over time, and req simple sand and seal once a year?

Im actually considering replacing my fiberglass platform with a teak. If properly cared for, the teak is classy. The fiberglass gete all scuffed up (its black) from sliding off the end on my wakeboard.:D

+1. Teak is a much more classier/richer look. IMO

Agreed. Wish there was a teak deck I could buy for my boat :(

My only issue with teak is that the fricking ducks love it. And I dislike having to clean the duck crap off it each time we go out. Seems they much prefer the teak over fiberglass.

I presume you leave your boat oin a lift at the lake? or you have a duck problem at home :D

Teak decks always seem to be slick like ice - it never fails when there is a line of boats to walk across, when you get to the one with teak, that's where everyone falls into the water and gets bloody shins.
