    Default Swim Platform modification or replacement for better surfing on Moomba Mobius LSV?

    Are there any parts available to replace the swim platform for better surfing on the Moomba Mobius LSV?
    I have the standard rounded fiberglass swim platform on my 2003 model, but it is 3-4 inches underwater when resting & drags in the water while surfing.

    I could either lift the current platform several inches (making it hard to get in/out and swim without weighting) or replace it with something with less drag.

    Has anyone pursued this, or do you know of an available part that I can purchase & screw the brackets on to fit this style boat?

    Thank you.

    iirc back in the day some were 'glassing the bottom of it, some tried to cut it up and some raised the platform.
    we stumbled across some different brackets thru a warranty issue on the supra and it made a night/day difference:

    Thank you! I'll check my local dealer to see if they have it. I can't confirm that P/N online.

    Do you know if it's possible to purchase newer surf-style Supra / Moomba platforms and how much they might run?
    I saw where someone crafted his own.

    I would bet it would be cheaper to 'glas the bottom of yours smooth to eliminate the lip than shelling out cash for a new platform. used platforms show up rarely and there just isn't a good dead boatyard to find parts/pieces off these.
    you could build a teak deck as well. might be in it 3-500 but that would give you a smooth bottom.

    it seems like a few people have said that a new surf platform was somewhere around $600 or so. Then you would have to take the brackets off the old platform and put them on the new one. There are several threads about it as well as making a "surf platform".

    The dealer I bought my used Moomba Mobius LS 2004 from a couple weeks ago raised my platform.
    I mentionned to them I wanted it about 30mm (1 3/16") higher, so they put blocks of that size between the platform and the brackets.
    So no need to move the brackets themselves. The boat is in the water, so it's a bit hard to make a picture for you.

    Additional benefit, I keep dry feet as well on the platform when putting to cover on.

    Raised my surf platform on a 2007 Supra w/strips on top of the brackets.
