Swim platforms on RIBs

Can I get some ideas ( and pictures) of swim platforms on RIBs. Should I look at aluminum or stainless frame? What should I use in the tread area? Cheers, Todd.

There's one I prepared earlier!!! Ha Ha. That looks to be the best one I've seen so far. It's off a zodiac hurricane . Probably don't need mine that flash! Should there be open holes in the tread to allow water to go through, so it doesn't catch if you drop off a wave?

Hey thanks. Did Have a look at some on Freinds ski boats, but thought it would be easier to use a tubular frame style, so i could incorporate it into the flange of the tow D's, as a part of the attachment . How is your GRP platform attached and supported to your transom?

I allways thought that a rib was a small swim platform. But that could be because I was introduced to ribs from diving

They used the big one as a full aft deck extension, it adds a couple of square meters to the usable deck. They are supported on GRP uprights and bolted through the transom, same as an outboard. They are often used to bolt an auxie on, or fit snapdavits for a tender. The commercial guys tend to use a small one for tidying a life raft away on.

Mine before and after platform fitted.
Two 2" s/s tube supports were then fitted from transom to under platform.
Roughed-up gel wash gives great non-slip - even if its hard on the knees.
