95 Response Needs Swim Platform

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 95 malibu response with the 5.7L mercruiser EFI and love it so far. Only issues the boat has are some rips in the seat seams which I will repair this winter and the fact that it is missing its ski/swim platform out back. The mounting "tabs" are still on the boat and intact. I was told someone took the boat out and did not install the locking pins for the platform and lost it in the lake.

My question is where can I get the correct mounting hardware to build a factory replica swim platform? I'm pretty handy with wood working so it should be too bad of a project. I would just need someone who has a similar boat to send me a bunch of pictures and some dimensions to go off of.

Either that or find someone who maybe wrecked their boat but the platform is good? Is there a good place to look for used ski platforms?

@Kmfish87:  Congrats on your purchase, it is a great ski boat.  One source is an auction house called Great Lakes Skipper.  Your dealer should also be a source and many of the marine specific parts sources like CP Performance, Michigan Motorz offer marine hardware.

those bakes brackets look like what it would use. Also looks like something I could fabricate pretty easily and for less than $200 a pair.

Thanks for the quick responses, Keep them coming!

If anyone has a mid 90s response or similar malibu model I would love a few pictures of the top and bottom of the platforms on those boats so I have something to go off of.

Thanks again!

From when I redid my friends. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of it flipped. But it just uses 3 strips of wood underneath. Glued and lots of screws.






Does it have a wedge? You might want to add a door, unless you have to get in the water for version 1 of the wedge.


This link will show you images from this forum. Happy browsing.

Teak World is who we used to repair our platform a few years ago. Great folks to work with, and it can out looking like it was brand new. If you do not use them to make you a new swim platform, they could be a good resource. They always answer all our question and made suggestions as to what was the best options for our repair. Good luck...
