FlexiTeek replacement swim platform

Postby GeoffSchultz » Thu Aug 17, 2017 2:45 pm

My replacement swim platform arrived today. The old one, made of teak, had gotten considerably thin, so I had this one made of FlexiTeek, which is a synthetic material which will get glued down. I personally think that it looks quite nice and should last a long time.

I can see that one of the corners is off a little bit, but I can assure you that I won't be sitting there staring at it in normal use with the same intensity I'm looking at it now.

I had it fabricated by Northeast Marine Solutions, who was easy to deal with. Most of the other places that I tried to deal with didn't respond to my requests for quotes.

Looks great in the photo. I've a Freedom 35 and have tried sanding the strips but without great success. Ballpark replacement cost?
