Swim Grid covers

Does anyone use a swim grid cover. Are you satisfied with it? Does it stay on or is it more trouble than its worth??

That was the first time I'd heard that name or saw that product. I haven't used one but I did have a platform cover integrated into my skiboatcovers.com cover last year. Mine covers the transom as well. Worked absolutely great this past season. The teak stayed clean and the transom fade I was getting from the sun was eliminated as well.

Not sure I would invest in just the platform cover personally as I was as much concerned about the transom (if not more) as I was platform but I will say covering the platform did wonders for keeping the teak in good condition.

thanks for the feedback. The optional one that MC sells is called a " Swim Platform Canvas" and it does attach via velcro to the tarp at the transom top edge and then hook around the swim platform with elastic sewn into the cover. So it would also cover the transom...Sounds like a good option. Thanks again

Replaced my cover last spring . Full cover that covers swim platform and transom. Keeps it clean and no transom fading. All one piece. Would definitely do it again.

Transom cover

I use one. ‘MC OEM” works great.
