I absolutely love it. I had swim platforms.com do a custom build for me, and they installed it too. There are 4 LED lights mounted underneath, just pre-wired for now until i mount my transducer for fishfinder next week.The deck is 45 inches!  B)

    I installed a swimplatforms.com on my Maxum 2400SCR and it was incredible... it transformed the whole boat.

    That really is awesome,  adds so much space to hang on while backed up to a beach. Can even put a couple of those anti-gravity chairs on it  B)

    Wonder how the leds will look.. you've got me thinking I could get them installed pretty quickly.. before splashing.

    i'm shopping for a swim platform myself. i think i rather had the transom mount verses top mount like you have,i'm thinking the transom mount would make boarding easier after a swim sense it will be mounted closer to the water. the one you have looks real nice though,bet its more stable as well sense yours is mounted on top of the existing platform. the one im looking at is called "the wedge" it tapers toward the rear so theres less likely of it dragging on take off. im getting a table mount and hidden 4 step extended ladder added,ill Add my own leds. price of platform is $1150 plus shipping,and add ons. hoping to keep the total under $1500 with me installing it.

    Just a thought, don't forget drive clearance when the drive is up. And all of us with the older 270 wish it was up higher. Because it plows very well.

    I agree. I love that our platform sits on the water, and I understand that some people are concerned about them dragging when taking off, and I'm sure it probably does, but it's never been an issue. The boat accelerates well, and planes quickly. I've never been a fan of the platforms that sit up out of the water.

    You can see my upgrade post that's it's finally up
    i had to get fiberglass guy involved to trim and cut it
    mold was off by about 1/4 inch in many spots

    I agree, lower to the water for e is much better. Easier boarding and mine never drags. Plus I can rinse it off coming off plane quickly LOL
