Default Looking for a swim platform that can be used with an outboard??

Who makes something decent? Hate to go with an old school teak one, or the white plastic ones, but due to my narrow beam, I don't think I will be able to use anything over 12" wide, couldnt find anything at Eddie, or Dana that was less than 18" Anyone know of anything?

This one from Eddie won't work for you? It's 11.5" wide.

HUH,

How the "F" did I miss that, That WILL work, I may just mount one on each side, and buy an Armstrong floating ladder with mounts both sides, so I have a choice.

Good point, if they wouldnt make one, I could always have a wedge made. I believe my transom is like 19 degrees??

A wedge would be the easiest route. However, Eddie Marine wil do custom work when asked. They made these custom steps for me.

Cool, I will figure out the angle, and get in touch with them. I was just ladder shopping, and remembered that I need to be careful about the tabs also, its kinda hard to fit all this stuff on a 6-1/2 foot wide transom
