Default Extended Swim Platforms....Yah or nah ?

First off...hi there, this is my first post. I have a 98 3200scr and as you may know the swim platform on the back is virtually non existent. The guy who surveyed my boat last year as well as the previous owner were less than excited to hear that I was interested in putting on an extended swim platform. I've had other tell me that it would be an awesome idea to put on an extended platform and in fact there is a company that makes a swim platform specifically for the 3200scr.

http://www.swimplatforms.com/3200_maxum.html

So...anyone have some thought on the matter?
My biggest concern is the angle of the boat just prior to getting up on plane and whether the extended platform would drag in the water.

Thanks,
Jeff

well..I can't tell you if it will drag in the water but I've been wanting to do the same with my boat...I have the 2700scr and like yours..has virtually no swim step...I'd like one at least big enough to stick a chair on it....
I say go for it...come here and post pictures....and let us know the in's and out's.....

oh yeah..welcome to the zoo..

Kinda apples and oranges but I couldn't imagine my 18'er without the extended swim deck. It virtually turns it into a 20'er. while at anchor there are usually two people on the swim deck at all times.

I have a swim platform for my 2000 2400SCR from the same company, and I would highly recommend it. The platform is massive, and really adds to the enjoyment out on the water and in the slip.

It just adds a lot of utility that should have been originally designed in the first place. Actually mounts on top of the original platform, so no worries underway.

Swimplatforms.com says that you can do it yourself, but I would recommend a reputable yard to do it for you.

I have the platform from them (swimplatforms.com) for my 2006 2400 SE and highly recommend it. Added quite a bit of useful space to the boat when at anchor, especially for the dog.

The only drawback was it took away the only real space for a ski/tow eye, but aside from the occasional tube or wakeboard, it's not a ski boat.

Olympic boat center in Issaquah, WA did the install.
