What is my 93 echelon missing here?

Seems like I am missing a center support for my swim platform. Could anyone tell/show me what I am missing? Excuse the poor shape of the hull, the previous owner really took care of the boat. Once the kinks get worked out, making her pretty will be the next project.

Yep, center support. Fiberglass piece with a rubber pad on top IIRC.

I won't be home till after dark so no pics today. Can try in the morning before work if I remember.

Went home for lunch. Excuse the buffing residue, it's going on a hoist soon for cleanup before storage.

There is a foam or rubber pad on top of it where the wood rests so there are no rattles.

Mine was missing when I bought the boat two years ago. No problems without it.

Hmm apparently mine is missing that piece also. I have had no problems over the last 10 years as it was not there when I bought the boat.

Guess I will add it to the list of endless boat projects. Maybe a piece of aluminum with a rubber pad, and then through bolted instead of screwed. Probably wait until I add a wedge and do it at the same time.

My last two echelons didn't have it either...I simply put White Silicone over the screw tips to keep from getting scratched while wiping the boat....and if two people are on the platform, we simply go to either end to stand....no issues thus far....

Only way to fix correct would be to THRU-BOLT the new support in place....
