Nice work, and nice shop. I think I was drooling over all the tools as much as I was the fine swim platform. Do you think you added much weight going with the thicker wood? It is probably lighter than the old one with the rubber stuff, but I don't even fill my fuel tank all the way because I want to minimize my wake.

It feels like it's about 15 lbs heavier - I'll put it on the scale and see exactly how much.

I got hooked collecting old tools until I ran out of space I'm restoring a mortiser and a 16" jointer right now - looks like I wont finish either before the water warms up.

Well, it survived the first weekend in the water, although it now has a few scratches

I will put on a transom saver in the next month or so

Very nice work. I've got a '99 MC Prostar 205V with the stock teak deck. I've noticed that, compared to my buddy's '02 X2 (same hull, I believe), my deck sits about 3 or 4 inches lower. It appears to be the way it's mounted. It's not a big deal when I'm wakeboarding, but when pulling at 10mph for wakesurfing, it gets in the way. Also, compared to an '04 Nautique that another friend owns, his platform edges are rounded. If mine comes out from the transom at 90 degrees, his comes out at, like, 75 degrees. Makes a big difference when surfing.

I am having trouble finding anyone who makes swim platforms for ski boats. I've only been looking online. I guess it's time to call up the local dealer and see what they know!

Anyhow, very nice work on the platform! Seems strange that someone coated that old one in rubber...
