Default Swim Platform

I have 1800 SR3 with standard fibreglass swim platform.

I have recently been doing some SkySki (Hydrofoil) riding using competition ski boats, here they have wood (Teak?) platform, and this makes getting set up on SkySki so easy with the board sitting on swim platform.
You then just slide off into water ready to roll.

When I have tried this on Maxum ... his has a dimpled plastic finish, and while dimples work well on feet, it is just so slippery when you out a board on it.

As interim, I have been laying a rubber car mat on platform, which 'works' but would prefer a more elegant / permanent solution ........... anybody have a suggestion, tip or answer to this.

I'm not sure if this will help:

http://www.seadek.com/

I also thought I saw a while back that the Air Chair makes either a swim platform or swim platform accessory that mounts or holds the airchair/skyski for mounting and launching. The Airchair website seems to be having some technical difficulties at this time. However you should find it on www.airchair.com

Just a couple of thoughts. Good Luck.

Tried web site ... nothing listed, and as AirChair is up for Sale, would imagine no future products are being made.

They have lost out big time to SkySki
