Default Swim Platform for 1995 2300SC

I have a 1995 2300SC. I love the boat but built in swim platform is to high to get in and out of water very easy. I was looking at newer model 2400SC year 2003 and 2004 which Maxum added on a bolt on swim platform extension. I was wondering if anyone knew if you could bolt this part onto the 1995 model year without to much fuss. Also have any of you purchased after market platform and had good luck with it. Pass on contact point for that please.

I have the same vessel and share the same issue. Ladder too short. Swim steps too high. I plan to do some diving from this boat and have been looking at solutions.

This company makes the only 'usable' platform I have found.
http://www.swimplatforms.com/2300_maxum.html

To me, it is still to high off the water. I want the platform as close to the surface as I can get and not interfere with operations.

I have since decided to 'make my own'. I can have an aluminum frame built locally, powdercoated, and for decking I'm using synthetic boards. I cam across a couple of custom builds that look really nice and are better built than the glass option. I can use four struts to support it. I have found no issues with mounting the hardware to the transom.

Here is a sample of one built for another type boat:

This company is in my own town.

Hope this helps. I may get to this at the end of summer (no time now).

My only challenge now is to get the frame drawing to the fabricator, then it would only take a slow weekend (and a few 6-packs) to finish and install.

Hey Mad MAx thanks for the feedback. I had found that web site already and I agree it still seems too high. I have decided to just get three rung ladder rather than the two rung ladder it came with. Afterall the boat is 1995 so not sure makes a lot of sense putting 1000.00 or more into a swim platform. Thanks for your feedback.
