Platform pin

Anyone know where I can get the pins that hold my swim platform to the boat? Lost one the other day.

Fairly easy to find but you're going to want to make sure you get a GOOD QUALITY stainless steel one or it'll be rusted in a week. Good ones are pretty expensive but you're either changing them out all the time or getting a good one and dealing with it once. You're going to have to measure the one you have then go someplace like Granger and bite the bullet. If you really want a shock go to your dealer and pick one up.

I don’t remove my platform but maybe once a year so I used stainless bolts and nylock nuts

For those looking, if you are in a pinch and need to find one locally, I used a trailer coupler pin that I picked up at West Marine, but I am sure would be available at all auto parts stores.

McMaster-Carr is my go-to for things like this. I have one in my area so will-call pickup is an option but they also have pretty quick, reasonably priced shipping.

Their website is great and their iOS app is surprisingly good too.

Why not get a galvanized pin clip? They're $3 at your hardware store, won't rust.
