Swim platform

Recommended Posts

On my 2006 21.5 VLX the swim platform is slightly submerged when parked and unloaded.

Over time it becomes quite slimy and slippery. Is there any way that it can be adjusted to be

above the water level?

That's strange.  I have the same boat and mine is a few inches out of the water when it's empty.  even with the ballast all full it's just in the water.  maybe just leave a little water in the bow tank to get the back up out of the water.

Mine is a little newer, but the swim platform is out of the water when not weighted down.  Even fully weighted (MLS, 2,000 lbs PnP, front bow sac) the swim platform is just barely above water level.

The swimstep on my 05 Vride is a couple inches out of the water with the ballast empty.......and 300 lbs of lead scattered throughout the boat. Plus 2 batteries.

Sounds to me like there is some weight in the boat somewhere.
