    Default Swim platform style feedback requested

    I thought Iíd bounce some options off you guys around a swim deck pad replacement. I have that black residue problem that is very common on this era of boat



    On the Seedek website, they have a template listed of the platform for a 2003 sunsport which I assume is the same size as what I have here. I was going to do a measure to make sure.

    Iím still open to new ideas but hereís two options Iíve been exploring. Any thoughts and preferences? I know itís just personal style but just curious what folks think.

    I kind of like the mocha one but gray wouldnít be so random.

    Gray would look best IMO with the upholstery you have.

    As much as I like the teak look I think it would look too out of place on a gray and white boat so I vote for the gray as well.

    If you can get a darker gray, it will show a lot less dirt.

    Not sure about SeaDek, but Gator Step has 3-4 different shades.

    Thanks for responses, guys. I appreciate it and I agree. Gray just fits the boat better. And good tip on the shade, mjhknox, Iíll compare both sites and just choose my favorite. One thing I noticed is that the seadek site lists different pad dimensions in the 2003 sunsport than my oem pads but the platform size, i think, is the same as my 2002. Also the 2003 sunsport ssv template calls for a one piece pad as opposed to the 3 piece. Anyone know if you can mix and match here as long as the pad fits the platform?

    Not sure why there would be a 3-piece unless the company was trying to replicate the stock look.

    As for 2002 vs 2003, I would assume the platform is the same. In the early years the platforms did not change much from year to year. They are different shapes by model - 22 vs 24.

    I would go for a 1-piece.

    Thatís a killer platform (and boat for that matter) Mjhknox! Thanks for weighing in. I ordered a one piece and so far I have done the paper test and it was a perfect fit. I looked at both seadek and gatorstep and went with seadek mostly based on the order wait times. Once installed Iíll share a pic but hereís what they send to check before the production cut:
