    New boat. I strap in on the swim platform. Anyone doing some sort of protection on their swim platform to keep it from getting t-bar nicks etc?

    I have tried several things. Foam does not hold up.

    I used some of this, but I probably got the wrong size and it fell off: https://www.trimlok.com/secure/reque...26Quantity%3d1

    I even found some paper thin aluminum stuff that has adhesive on it. My swim platform is curved, so it wouldn't stick properly without wrinkling up.

    I loved my previous boat that had a wood platform, the nicks just sanded off. There is an aftermarket company that makes wood platforms, but they aren't cheap.

    When I get serious about this sport, I will probably rhino-line the platform.

    For now, I debate whether it would just be cheapest to pay my fiberlgass guy a few hundy to fix it when I sell the boat. I always put the Tbar on the starboard side, so the repair would not be all that much.

    I had the same question a couple threads down. I managed to get some samples of Blacktip Jetsports traction mat and it seems pretty durable so I'm gonna try it on my platform.
