The top picture shows when I loosened the bracket to base connection to get everything to work, it became obvious the base was not the correct transom angle. I could used them as removable brackets, except that they position the platform too high.....
The bracket base also causes the platform to hit the lifting rings:

While I could remove material from either the aluminum bracket or the teak, I am not going to do that.
Here is a look from below at how it also doesn't hit the center support, which a few folks on here needed to remove in order to have the platform fold correctly.

Lastly, this is my guess at the correct angle needed for my transom ('89 PS190). I was going to have a local shop mill them down, but the bracket is still too high.

These were purchased from another member on here, he purchased them for his boat of the same year, but never installed them. Now they are mine and don't fit.
another issue would be if you shave them for the correct angle it's going to move the platform closer to the boat and you'll have even more issues with the hooks

With the factory brackets, the platform sets about 1/2 off of the transom. With the folding, it would be about the same - but it's a moot point as they won't fit under the lifting ring anyway.

I calling Alloy Marine on Monday.

For the guys that went to Alloy Marine, what style bracket did you get. Also I know this thread is old, but had anyone found removable brackets for a 85 S&S from some where else? Thanks Clayton
