Default Extended Swim Platforms

Happy Friday everyone! So we have decided this years winter project will be to install an extended swim platform. We have a 2000 2800SCR. Has anyone had any experience good/bad with www.swimplatforms.com or any other manufacturer? Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

Hey M&M..........happy Friday back at ya............I would love to put one of these platforms.....got to work it in the budget. Try http://swim-platform.com

I think this might a different website. Where in Illinois are you from and boat? There has been a couple of boaters on this website that have done what your thinking about and with good results.

M & M:
I've never pasted a link to a previously-discussed subject, so let me know if this works.

Thanks for the response everyone! I tried searching swim platforms in the thread search, but since platform was spelled wrong in their post description I couldn't find it.

Bigger, we boat on the Chain O Lakes in Northern Illinois. Beautiful area, been boating here for years. If you ever come out there, just go to the Sandbar area and look for us, we have a BIG picture of 2 M&M's on the back of the boat!

I have been looking into installing one on my 1997 2400SCR, and I like the looks of the www.swimplatforms.com model. www.swim-platform.com just doesn't look like it's fit and finish are as good. I frequent a few other boating sites and have heard nothing but good reviews from www.swimplatforms.com Actually another boater and I are looking at going together this January and maybe getting a little discount on crating and freight.

I haven't personally had anyone that ordered from swimplatforms.com, but everyone is saying that their friends that have ordered from them are very happy with the product. You actually spoke about getting a discount, a friend of ours has a 98 2800SCR maxum and they said they would give us a discount if we ordered together and shipped to one location. Not a bad deal if you can get other boaters to order at the same time!

Let me know your experience, we are going to be ordering in the next few weeks. If you haven't already gotten a quote, you can request one on their website. They got back to me in 30 min with pricing and have been VERY responsive with answering my questions.

Let me know what they say about a discount for you too!

M&M .........Never have boated in the chains.........My first new bayliner( 1988 2150) I almost bought from Fox Harbor. I used to work for CNW railroad in Chicago during the 80's and knew alot of fellow worker that boated in the Chain-o-lakes. I get on the their website everyonce in while (bikini shots)www.funonthefox.com

In fact we will be up in Elgin in October for a Power squadron conference.........

We are at the marina right next door to Fox Lake Harbor, been there for years, love the people and the marina. As for that website that you speak, there may be a few pictures of us on there from over the years (well, probably more than a few!) LOL! It's a small world sometimes! You probably know a few people that we do, since boating here is like a small famly, with much gossip and some drama, but family to say the least!
