sailboat swim platform

Anyone!

I need to put a swim platform on a Beneteau First 345. The stern slants at about 60 degrees from vertical and currently has two tube steps down to the swim ladder that folds into the water. I need a place to sit to put on snorkel gear and a ladder in and out of the water. Ideas, source, thoughts....anything

Thanx
Cliff

Here''s one idea if the LINK works:
http://www.sailboatowners.com/upload/display.tpl?folder=73127065966&fno=17
This is a friend''s solution on his Hunter 37-Cutter. If the link does not work you can find it in the "Photo Forum" archives over on "www.hunterowners.com".

1984 Beneteau First 345

I JUST BOUGHT A 1984 BENETEAU FIRST 345. IT HAS THE SAME TRANSOM INCLINATION (ABOUT 30 DEGREES FROM THE VERTICAL).
I TRIED TO ACCESS THE WEB ADDRESS BELOW, NO LUCK.
COULD YOU INFORM ABOUT OTHER WEB PAGES OR ANY COMPANY THAT SUPPLY OR MANUFACTURE AN AFT SWIM/DIVE PLATFORM OF THAT SAILBOAT MODEL.

THANKS.

Cliff,
I've seen two options. One where a fairly good glass man added a sugar scoop swim platform to a 30 footer. Looks fantastic and still sails very well but that probably won't meet your needs.
There's a company in Barrie north of Toronto called Stainless Outfitters that does this also. Here is their link. There's a picture 3/4 of the way down the page that likely will meet your needs. I don't know where you are but I know they do custom work and will ship anywhere in the US or Canada
I have no affiliation with the company nor have I bought anything from them but they have a good reputation and, based on my discussions with them at the Toronto Boat Show, seem reasonable by boat standards.

You are probably best to search the internet for an idea of what would work and find a good local to you stainless fabrication business and get them to measure the boat to get it perfect. I don't think I would trust a custom job to someone who can't see the boat. That way if it doesn't fit it is their problem not yours.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Guys, I doubt Cliff much cares, as his post is SEVEN YEARS OLD. If he doesn't have a solution by now, he's probably gotten a different boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
