Swim deck splash

Recommended Posts

ChainSetter

I did a quick search and found nothing on here.  I'm pretty surprised maybe my search sucked.  Are we the only people that have a huge issue with the splash from other peoples wake coming up through the gap between the deck and the transom? When we are sitting at the sandbar and rollers come in everyone around the swim deck gets splashed constantly.  We had the issue with our 07 LSV and hoped it would be gone with the new '15 247 but its still there.  It should be solvable with some weather stripping or something but I can't believe Malibu didn't fix this at this point. Thoughts?  Solutions?

We do too.  I think next time at the cove I will fill the ballast to sink the platform and see if that helps.

perfectly normal for any boat with a swim platform, why are you concerned with getting wet while in a boat?

I get worried when I get that splash effect. That is a lot of pressure up under the deck, lot of pressure on the mounts. If I get that a lot, I'll turn the boat so the waves hit the bow. I know that isn't always possible though. 

One thing you could try is taking a hollow noodle and slicing it down the edge and jam it in that space.

Would the pressure not be the same if not greater, if you seal the space between the boat and the platform?

Minimal difference. that little space only relieves a little pressure. The amount of water force coming up through that opening, think about that spread across your whole deck.
