Thannks Craig. I do have a welder although my skills are a little lacking. I think that is my only option. Hopefully the welds hold and I dont fall off into the water with the ladder in my hand :ohmy:

I might have to give that a try although it may add more weight to the platform.

As you know stainless welding requires different skills.
Could you countersink the hole for the nuts, fiberglass the cut and let a washer spread the load?

Worked some more on the swim platform this weekend. We removed the caulking from the substructure on the boat and I installed the first layer of marine plywood to the skin of the platform. I also found a little time to take the big step and drill a 2 3/8 hole through the transom for the Perko underwater light :ohmy:

The first layer of wood core is nicely cured and I cut out the hatch opening today. This will allow me to reach under the platform and bolt the platform to the substructure without having to go through the engine compartment like a contortsionist
