for me as well its smostly sand and when im coming in ill idle in and when i get close ill throw her in reverse a little and cut her off when shes just floating, ill hop out, grab the boat and walk her then is at most waist deep and you can walk right on the swim platform, sit and slide right off the back and walk..maybe you can find a nautique wooden platform throw it on and and put a foldable ladder on that.
