Is it difficult to install the boat swim platform?

How much weight will the Flip-Stow Platform support?

What is the purpose of the vents?

The optional vents (with or without lighting) are simply cosmetic.  Many people believe the vents allow the surge of water to pass through the platform after stopping hard, which of course it does.  We haven’t experienced or heard of any problems with our platforms dragging or digging in on a steep takeoff or hard stops.

Does the platform come with a ladder?

You can use your own ladder or request a new 2, 3, or 4 rung ladder to meet your specifications.

My platform arrived damaged, do I send it back or how do I proceed?

All shipments from are insured by the sender and a claim will need to be filed with the logistics company to proceed with repairs. Repairs can be done at local fiberglass specialists or certain marinas.

I don’t have the tools needed to install the platform, where should I have it sent?

We recommend shipping the platform directly to the installer.

Can I unload the platform by myself?

Even our smaller platforms can weigh at least 60 so a team-lift is required at the very least. Our larger crates may require a forklift or other lifting equipment to safely unload.

Installation FAQ's​

We recommend contacting a local marine specialist or boat repair facility to have the platform installed. This will contribute to additional cost however we recommend this method as it is the safest and easiest way to have a platform installed.
