Swim Platform Pad

I recently had the pad on my swim platform replaced by Mastercraft because it was starting to bubble/separate from the platform. They did it for free but the pad that is on there now is awful. It is already starting to curl at the edges and it is really hard. It hurts your feet and knees when you are boarding because it is so stiff. I had a black one to start with and I liked it better. The new one is a light gray.

Is there anywhere to buy just a new pad?

Do you guys know anywhere to maybe get a custom one made?

If I am going to replace it myself then I might put the name of the boat in it or put our company logo in it. What are the options?

Thanks guys,
LG

check out SeaDek - www.seadek.com. I think Sodar on here had some pieces custom cut for his boat or trailer. I just ordered some bulk pieces and I am going to cut it to fit myself.

I believe that they even show a MC platform pad on their website.

EDIT: GoFast beat me to it...

I used some hydroturf sheet I had left over from my jet ski build. You can get b-stock really cheap and I have never been able to tell a difference:

Then you just have to cut it out to match(if you can pull the old pad off in one piece you can use it as a template), rubber cement both the back of the sheet and the platform and stick.

Here's a pic of my X-30 with the new seadek pad just before the whole platform got stolen on Memorial day weekend. The people at Seadek are great to work with. Very fast service also.

Good looking product! How is it on the feet and knees while getting in and out of the boat? Is it a hard rubber or does it compress some?

It is a foam type material. 100% better than stock. Like Gofast said, just request a sample that way you can see exactly what it is and the colors that it comes in. You can also call them with any questions you have, great customer service. They are able to do custom designs also.

I replaced my old stock pad with gatorgrip and it is working out great. A picture is attached. It seems to be holding up well.
