    Default Swim Step

    So when will SC come up with a version of a swim step?

    I knew BU had this and had a patent on there design. Noticed that MC also has one.

    Bu got theirs when they bought out Cobolt Boats. Cobalt had this year's before and I like that in turns into a bench like a swim up bar.

    Wonder if MC is paying royalties to use this. I know they did to get out of the law suit for the wake system.

    Would be smart of SC to either develop their own or pay the royalties and put it on both lines of boats.

    TBH.....Any good glass shop could build this and you can buy the hinges.

    I have seen several of you build new platforms for outback, LSV, Launch boats. This adds a little complexity but definitely possible. It won't be cheap but what on these boats are?

    That doesn't seem bad at all, I bet most people who want the option would pay that easy.

    Ya I just had glass work done on one of our jet skis for a scratch about as long as a house key and I can tell you having this built would be crazy expensive.

    Not as expensive as a new BU or MC....lol!

    This is a $700 option but the boat MSRP before you get this as an available option to select is already $200k+.

    My swim deck has that awful slick rubber pad not gator step. If I can find those hinges it might be a good project for this winter

    If you tackle this, please, please document it. Would be an awesome build to follow and see come to life.

    I assume one reason is the current swim platform would not support hinges and the amount of weight for someone to climb up off the back of the boat.

    It needs to be able to support that 300 pound person holding a Diet Coke in one hand and a bag of Doritos in the other.
