06 X30 swim platform replacement

I was surfing this weekend and my platform came off, brackets included, and is at the bottom of the lake. I am looking for guidance or suggestions on replacing the platform for an 06 boat.

One option is to buy a new teak platform from Teakworld.

I sold my fiberglass platform after it sat in the corner for years after getting a teak platform.....
Personal preference though.
If you can find a used one, I believe X2, x15 and x30 all use the same platform. They're stupid expensive to buy new and the brackets aren't cheap either.
Hopefully someone will post up with a spare they're selling.

I prefer fiberglass over teak. My experience is that a well maintained teak platform needs oiled. To me that means extra maintenance and also a slick swim platform. I have seen multiple people slip and fall on an oiled teak platform. Teak is beautiful, but is not the right product for us.

They need to learn the 75/25 rule and that wont happen.

It probably takes me as long to clean and oil teak as it would to wax the gel coat on a fiberglass one.

To each their own I guess.

How deep was the water? There's probably some recreational divers that would look for you. A non decompression dive at 60 feet gives them 60 minutes of bottom time.

About 40 feet or so. Good idea on the diver. Might look into it

This is exactly what I was going to say. Maintaining teak is pretty easy. I apply a couple of coats once a month and it looks good as new. Not slick at all-almost the opposite. Now if you were at a tie up with Harold back in the day then you really needed to watch your step walking across his platform.
