Mine is simply a lump of ply glassed over (1.5" thick overall) and bolted through the lip of the platform and heavily reinforced at the back.
Picture a bit fuzzy as its been cropped from another and X200.
Next time at the boat will take pics.

The best platforms here have inboards, however there is nothing stopping having a fold out wing platform over the sponson is there. Would take a bit of thought but bottle racks could be taken to task by folding out if hinged in the middle.
Then you'd have a platform either side.
There's something in that.

I'm doing some work on a Boston Whaler that has an offset platform on the stb side, I will take a pic and post tomorrow...

The issue with a bathing platform and an outboard on a rib is the tube is taking up half the area to fit it to...... Fold out the side might be the best way to go..

You only need one person on it at a time, they're not like yachtie ones where the whole family gather for a BBQ.
That means that really only 2-3 sq feet are required, however, with one either side they could cater for two at a time and this would be by default as they would be symmetric because they hinge out of the centre line.

If you have a single outboard, put a bracket on at you're set with space.

There's even some standing room on an H733 with twin ob.

And then there's Ryan's full flotation bracket

I have small GRP platforms either side of the outboard and one has a ladder. They are cut away box section screwed onto the transom. They have held my 16 stone many a time. They are available from IBS who are the suppliers of valiant ribs.

I think I'll have to look again when I get mine put back together (and fabricate the bracket). I will have a single OB so I might be able to swing it.

NCP, where are your tubes???

Macattack, that looks very nice. I might have to copy you in some fashion.

So I just had Armstrong build me a smaller quarter platform. I didn't want the weight of a full platform. Just wanted a solid platform with ladder to get out of the water.


This is going on a Willard Seaforce 730 diesel rib.

They did a great job and it was very reasonable for custom aluminum (awlgripped) + stainless telescoping ladder.

Pictures attached. I haven't yet mounted it.
