Gatorstep Platform Pad

The pad on my swim platform was starting to come loose. It finally fell off for the most part during a surf session.



I decided to replace it with Gatorstep. I chose the sharkfin scraped over ebony. If I remember I'll add more pictures with the platform installed back on the boat.

Very nice, how was gator step to work with? I literally left a message one day and the guy called me back in 10 min apologizing because he couldn't answer the phone because he was getting the kids to school. I get the impression that it is a small company trying to break into the market.

Most of my time is spent on the chain. Either Pistakee Bay or Lake Marie.

TJ was pretty responsive via email and by phone. I think I had to call him once or twice to get answers quicker. The one time I called to ask for a tracking number he did mention something about being in the process of moving the shop. Overall though, it was a good experience.

Looks really good! I'll have to go that route when my pad gives up the ghost.

How is it that Gatorstep can use the Mastercraft Logos and Seadek can't? I was told by Seadek that you have to write Mastercaft a letter asking permission to use the logo, if they respond agreeing to use the logo as a one time application on your own boat, and not for the purpose of resale then Seadek would use that response letter to enable them to make the logo for your boat.

They told me I couldn't get the Mastercraft logo. I also couldn't get the word Mastercraft (it was in font similar to theirs), and or the logo they use on their seats where it's a star with the letters "MC" inside due to them being trademarked by Mastercraft.

The logo I have was created/designed by TJ at Gatorstep based off a picture of flooring I found for a X23. Maybe because mine is a 15 in the middle it's OK? I just know he was comfortable enough to design and produce it for me without a need for a letter from Mastercraft.

What a load of ****. Need permission from Mastercraft to put a swim pad with Mastercraft on your Mastercraft?
To bad they can't make one that doesn't fall apart.
