View Full Version : Swim Platform Cracking

Has anyone found stress cracks in their swim platforms? I only have 12 hours on my 06 Outback LSV and I noticed this weekend that I have stress cracks on the edge of my swim platform. I don't understand this. I have been in calm water 95% of the time. I have not hit any waves large enough to cause stress cracks. I think I am going to take it off and show the dealer.

Not on my swim platform but on the transom of my boat around the swim platform brackets. It looks as though the gel coat may have not been properly chamfered around the bracket holes because all of the cracks look like they start at the screw locations. This also happened on our 2003 Outback LS and Skiers Choice fixed it with no troubles. I really hope the process is the same with our '05. Get the platform to your dealer ASAP.
