Hey-the swim platform has been loose for a while. Went down to the boat today and its gone. Anyone know if it floats? I thought it might be near the dock and Id dive for it. And where can I get a new one?
Thanks

yes they float but 5 did not tip it over so I guess air under could have kept it afloat.

Not to hijack the thread but .. .
I noticed my swim platform was getting looser and when I looked at it further, the hole where the pin goes in is elongating and the sides are wearing narrower.
Anyone else have that problem?
Does anyone know if you can buy just the support bracket?

you can get the support bracket from viper customs he had some platforms but not sure if he has one left to fit an 04 or not but it would be worth a shot give jim a call at 865-388-4096

Just got a quote for a new teak platform-$350-I thought that was fair-what do you all think??????

Thats honestly cheaper then i thought it would be. Hell thats down right reasonable in my book seeing how much everything else for these boats cost.

Thanks-Yes the dealer said Teak is usually more expensive than the fiberglass but he had a few and wanted to get rid of them. I just have to drive 2 hours to get it. Maybe I'll look at a new Moomba!!!. Mine is a 2004 and I love it.

Do you have a # or website for the teak platform? Does anyone know if Moomba makes a teak platform for the XLV? sorry for the thread jack.

We have the teak platform on our 2008 LS and we love it! you know a real ski boat has to have a wood platform. It was a 250 dollar option I believe when we ordered it but at 350 dollars in this type of market that to me is a steal!
