    Regardless if it works or not, or has any affect on the wake, it is a project for me and my dad to work on... which is always priceless and worth the memory. Its all a bonus if it works. plus it is an easy (not to costly) project. Then at the end of the day you can say you atleast tried something different. If i don't like it, then i can unscrew the one we made and put the old one back on...

    BJ- I like your style.

    Starboard = Spendy! I just used some of this stuff to rebuild my rear locker walls and supports. Used 1/2" black but they have colors. It cuts easily but seems pretty sturdy. I'd go pretty thick for a platform though. Maybe double stack some 3/4".

    Bergermaister- we did look into it, it was going to be pretty spendy for what what we were wanting to do. We are going to try this way, and if we need to remake it, or try something different, we have plenty of Wood left over. I honestly think what we have will work for what it will be used for... (getting in and out of the boat).... but this is the fun of it.. trial and error!!

    24x54x3/4 is 80lbs....I wonder how much the platform weighs, I didn't think it was that much...

    Really? I got 2 sheets of 1/2" 24x48 and I'm quite sure both together when they arrived didn't weigh that much. Maybe 30lbs total.

    so I was able to go out and test the platform yesterday. I am happy with the results, none of the platform touches the water while underway. I was able to ride ropeless right off the bat with no problems and rode quite a ways on top of that... The one thing I will need to do is get a non-slip pad for it, but otherwise I am happy with the results.
