Black rubber on swim platform is making a mess

The black rubber on my fiberglass swim platform is tracking black resedue into my boat. Does anybody know how I might be able to treat the rubber to prevent this, or what's causing it?

The only thing I can think of is replace the rubber, and keep 303 on the new stuff to prevent it from happening in the first place. Far as I know, once rubber get to that point, it is gone. Shouldn't be hard to peel the rubber off and glue new back on.

Call your dealer or go visit, from what I have read on here, MasterCraft is aware of the problem, and is working to fix it.

I'm waiting to see how this ultimately gets resolved. They're still working on the details, I've been told in subequent emails from Mastercraft. Theoretically, it's something that would be worked through dealers once they do.

flipper is right. I scrubbed my old boats rubber mat with a stiff brush soap and water thinking I'd remove the top layer and get down to good rubber. Never happened and I tried several times. I wasted to much time on something that cost $50 to replace.

Go back to your dealer as most of them are getting this issue warrantied through MC from what I've heard. They will end up peeling off the rubber that is currently on your platform (no easy task), and replacing it with new. I guess they just got a bad batch.

Thanks for all the knowledge. Looks like I'll have to get a new one.
