Honestly, I don't think it would be the way to go with furniture but that's just me. It's just too slick and slippery.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

My question is how much gap is there between the platform and the back of the boat?

And it does have the transom saver, I'm not sure if they all do or not.
Both my 96 and my X2 have about 1/2" gap, maybe more, from the transom to the platform. Enough room to get your fingers in there when lifting off the platform.

Carden, I have about 1/2" gap as well and mine lifted off easy as pie this weekend for cleaning and oiling. Here are some pics before and after of my platform.

Checked the gap on my father in law's 98 205 this weekend. Less than 0.25".

Thanks guys, I just put my brackets on and gapped it just enough to lift the platform off.
