Ok, we've heard your opinion, let's talk some facts and then just put this to bed.
The Canadian exchange rate is .75 CAN = 1USD. So, it's 25%, not 30%.
International shipping cancels that savings. My shipping quote from platform ultra was $403.73. Crate was $133.75, platform was $2,024.71, for a total of $2,562.19.
My quote from swimplatforms.com was $1,835, $135 for crate, and $349 for shipping, for a total of $2,379.
Swimplatforms.com's platform is 49" vs.
Platform ultra 46".
In summary, their platform is smaller, priced higher, and more expensive to ship, even with a favorable exchange rate.
Their selling point is a claimed "lighter" with no facts cited to back up the claim. My boat weighs over 12,000 pounds. The weight of the swim platform is a non-factor.
