2006 Malibu wakesetter 247LSV. Who knows where to get a replacement quick?  Anyone ?  Also could someone give me measurements of it?  I’m dead in the water   Damn covid has my dealer closed. Please help

Someone has to ask - HTH did it "fall off"? I can't even begin to imagine.  As for replacments, unless you find a wrecker, it will be a new build from the factory - they are open this week.

I suspect we hit a piece of truck tire and it flew up and broke it off at the aluminum bracket. Malibu is backed up on rebuilds. If someone has a contact from that ad I’m not on that group

this guy's 247 looks to be your era of boat according to his bracket style (same as my 08 VLX brackets too).  You could always follow this for the bracket upgrades then go buy yourself 3/4-1" HPDE and custom cut on a table saw, bevel edges and slap some cheap EVA foam on it for the summer.  just some ideas, feeling the pain for you.

I dont want to rain on anyones parade, but backed up or not, I suspect they will tell you that a platform for a 2006 is no longer available. They dont even keep fabric templates past 5yrs.

In the event they are able to build it, be ready for a wait. Last one I ordered took over three months to get.

Ouch.  That has to suck greatly.  I would think a new one from the factory will run $2500?  You could try this place (evil competitor photo to give you an idea what can be done) https://swimplatformsuperstore.com/mastercraft-photos

Buddy’s platform on his MC is at the bottom of the lake. I fabricated aluminum brackets with 1 1/8” plywood platform and covered in black Astro turf for a temporary solution. Once he saw the cost of a new one he has kept the temp one

I thought there were 2 in the classifieds recently, they may be gone now. There was a boat in the PNW that was being parted out and I recall seeing one other. i can find them now...

It looks like there might be a Malibu platform behind the Tige platform. Only a call will tell if they have something for you.

That Sir, is a nice find!  Hopefully it is still there for him

another option, but it needs some "help" to get the MasterCraft off of it:

I also may know of one more option, I'm checking now. From what I've been able to find '06-'12 247 hulls were the same, but don't take that as fact. I may help broaden the search.

Believe the transom curve on all Malibus was the same for several years so even something like a Response platform should work on the 247.

Look at the picture for item STBCVXU in the "Clearance" -> "Platform, Wedges, ..."

Called them. Getting info but sounds like they only have the tige’

I’m working with some now on possibly fabricating something close to size. I have the brackets because they seperated from the platform. The brackets were still pinned in. I need to find the rubber matting. Any good sources for that?   Thanks all
