Swim Platform

Recommended Posts

Once I get my engine problems resolved we would like to put a swim platform on the back of our new to us 1998 260.   I checked and Chaparral does not carry the one for my year boat any longer.  Anyone know of a good aftermarket site that I can purchase one from?  And how difficult are they to install?

I have a '97 260 and installed mine from swimplatforms.com about 4 years ago. Highly recommend them. Fits great and has held up well.

Thanks did you do the install yourself?

Yep. Did it myself. Took the crate the platform came in and add some 2x4 legs to get the platform close to the right height then shimmed it the rest of the way.  Drill 2 holes first, bolt them on tight, not too tight. Then drill the rest. Remove the two bolts and use a lot of 5200.  Took about 2 days to put it in. A day and a half to measure and sweat it out (first time I drilled into the hull) , then an hour or two to install it.
