Re: transom gate and swim platform

Jeboniface, Thanks for posting the pics. Nice work and great detail. Did you need to special order the aluminum channel across the top of the gate? Bill I carefully removed the original channel and simply cut it with a hacksaw and reinstalled it. The gate is 1/2 in. thick and the transom is just un...

Re: transom gate and swim platform

Jeboniface, Do you have a ladder that drops down from the swim platform into the water with your modifications? If so could you post a photo when you get a chance. Thanks I have an undermount three step teliscoping ladder. Easy to mount on the plastic platform. http://www.anchoring.com/underplatfor...

Re: transom gate and swim platform

I decided to go with the original plan of hinged gate. The local marina has some hinges that would work so now I just have to get a latch.

Re: transom gate and swim platform

I haven't made the gate because I have been debating hinge placement and latching options. I like the idea of a drop in gate. Two verticals stiles on each side with the gate dropping down into the slot. Simple, no hardware. I could do that this weekend it's so simple! I'll post pics if I get around ...

Re: transom gate and swim platform

Piedmont Plastics quoted me $980.00 for for a solid piece of 1"x4'x12', Starboard-textured, and somewhere in the $300.00 range for CNC Routing. Would have to modify my current supports if not replace, wheels are turning. Have you filled the openings in the transom? Are you referring to the ver...

transom gate and swim platform

I posted a few pics on a modification about a transom gate and larger swim platform and several readers asked for some details so I thought I'd start a thread for anyone interested in the topic. The boat is a 1982 28' Sportsfisherman with twin V6 165 HP Crusaders. It is used for day outings with the...

Re: Wanted 28" Sportsman

It has completely changed how we enjoy the boat. The kids and dog love it. I do most of my fishing off the platform. It is deep enough to use a folding chair. The swim platform was made by Plasteak outside Akron,OH, https://www.plasteak.com. I sent them a cardboard template based off the original bu...
