Sorry no pictures, but we surfed yesterday and all agreed that it did not improve the surf wake. On my boat we have not been able to clean up the top of the wake. It just washes out and I was hoping that keeping the platform from cutting into the wake would help with this. We still had the washed out top on he wave. The only time I've been able to clean his up is when we've had very smooth water and by turning the boat back into the wake. This shortens the pocket but the wake is clean.

I built a slanted fin under my platform out of 2x10 pressure treated wood that captured the wash and shot it out to starboard side. Cleaned up the wake perfectly. I have the fiberglass platform with the lip and still a perfectly clean wake. 2000 230 VRS w 1000 lb sac port, 400 stbd, 600 bow sac, 250 stbd pass locker, 250 ski locker.

Platform is not the issue - it was all prop wash - about a 6" dia stream that washes over the top of the wake if not diverted.

The 2000 is a different hull then 06+ 230s.

The concept may work on new hulls. Do you have some photos of your mod?

Did you ever get a fully weighted test with the new platform done?
