Fiberglass swim platform retro fit

Recommended Posts

Hi Team,

im looking for some infromation, i have an 04 Malibu Wakesetter VLX, currently it has a worn out Teak swim platform, im wanting to upgrade to a fiberglass one. Only problem is i spoke with my Malibu dealer and they cannot source the mould for mine any more. my question is i know they changed the hull in 2005, but has anyone retro fitted a new platform to the older pre 04 boat? i luv the look of the new my15 onwards platforms with surf gate cut outs, however the back of the newer boat i belive is much more rounded than my straight transom.

Has anyone retro fitted anything like this? would it be hard to modify a newer one to fit, or does any one know a newer model that would possibly suit?

 

thanks is advance, any help is greatly appreciated.

The '05 - '08 Vride is the same hull as your boat.

Unless your teak has chunks missing out of it, they are very quick and easy to restore back to like new condition. A power sander and some teak oil/sealer will have it looking new once more. 

The Response and Response LX are also the SV23 hull up through 2014.

Yeah, unless there is damage you can easily make your old teak look new again, and for almost nothing.

FWIW, I have a teak deck on my 94 Echelon that came from an 06 Vride, and it fits perfectly.  So there are a LOT of compatible models.

Also, I have sanded and finished it several times, it is very easy to do.
