So just got done re-doing garage floor and now I'm looking for some ideas on how to hang my platform from the wall instead of just setting on the floor.
Trying to keep a little more organized.
Thanks

sorry I don't have any good ideas about the platform, but even in the garage that Canadian blue looks amazing!

I noticed that but figured if I mentioned it, you would complain about it. ;)

starting to think this thread has nothing to do with a swim platform (None seen in the photo!) and everything about showing off his beautiful boat and new floor coating!:D

Thanks for the compliments!!
The floor was done by:http://www.garagefloorcoatingofmn.com
Transom brackets might work and I will check into that cost, but I was hoping to make something out of uni-strut or ?????

Build a frame with casters (like a creeper) to put it on and roll it under the boat, out of the way....... Maybe a piece of carpet (up side down) then slide it under.

Nice floor BTW!

I would make a bracket to attach to the wall behind the boat and hang it above the transom.

I think this is a furniture moving cart from Home Depot. Had it for years and can't remember where its from. Overrated yes, but cheap enough. Also my platform is a pain to manage by myself. The folding brackets are much better idea

No idea what to do with the platform, but you really need to come organize my garage. Awesome!

^This, and make the bracket so that you can pull the boat forward, fold the bracket down and put it back on the boat.

Don't think that will work, the boat literally needs to touch the back wall in order for the garage door to go down.

Home Depot simple shelf supports/L-brackets hold the platform and bimini all in one for about $3.50 :D Not a very good pic but you can get the idea. That's my grand daughter eager to navigate the ol PS.

That should work. I have 2 of them, (used to put jet skis on them in the garage), but my boat fits in my garage with the platform on and up....... :D
