Thanks. I added the retractable tie downs last year. Initially there wasn't enough room to get the hooks through between the platform and transom. I would just remove the platform pins and slide the platform up about an inch and there would be enough room for the tie downs to clear. Later in the summer the screws holding the platform to the bracket ripped out while taking big rollers watching a wakeboard tournament. When I repaired the platform by filling the holes with marine epoxy, I drilled the holes about 1/4" further in. That gave me enough room for the hooks to make it through.
