    Default Sloppy Swim Platform - '13 Mojo

    So, I've had my Mojo a couple months and I've been mildly annoyed by the slop in the swim platform. It makes a lot of noise when wake comes in and hits it and it just feels kinda cheesy. I'm sure this is the case on all the models that have the platform.

    I had a chance to take a look at a '14 Mobius this weekend at I noticed the platform was solid, they've gone to a new design of bracket which I think would be fairly simple to swap out. It's all steel and there is no play in the design at all, very good improvement.

    As I was looking at my platform I noticed some empty threaded holes... should these have set screws in them or something?

    Short answer, Yes, you are missing the screws that will tighten it up and there will be no play at all.

    Fantastic. Well, I'll contact the dealer then... didn't see that in the bag 'o goodies nor in the literature. With that said, the new design is still a big improvement.

    Well, it just so happens that there were 4 set screws in the bag of goodies... I'm not sure if I should feel stupid or my dealer... I certainly didn't see this in the literature though.

    I just got them installed... still a lot of play due to the clearance in the bottom pin holes. I can see these things backing out pretty easily... should there be Loctite on these?

    Thanks!

    Never really understood why people are so bothered by the platform slop. I have alot in mine due to the old bracket with NO set screws. i never even notice it unless i pick up on the platform and try to shake it

    Don't you here it flopping around when a roller hits your boat while you're sitting still? Sure makes a lot of noise... first few times we were trying to figure out what it was.

    If I'm just floating a roller hits us from
    Behind I guess it makes a noise, never really paid much attention to it and we don't get hit by that many rollers. I wouldn't say it's that much louder than the water splashing when you're hit by a roller

    +1... another reason I need to upgrade my audio... so I can't hear the platform flopping

    I may inquire about getting a set of 14 brackets... looks like they would be a pretty easy thing to swap out.
