The swim platform on our '06 270 was full of spider cracks we assume from a previous owner's lack of docking skills.
We decided to purchase a new platform from Rinker and ordered one the beginning of May and it was completed mid June.
Instead of shipping I decided to fly out, rent a u-haul and drive it back.
Rinker was closed the week of the 4th of July so I made arrangements to arrive on Monday 7/10. When I got there the platform as done, BUT in the wrong color, beige instead of white. Glad they did not ship it.
Anyway they determined there was a misunderstanding between parts and manufacturing as to the color.
After some research they located the correct color of my boat and believe it or not, produced a new platform to be ready the next day around noon. This caused me to have to stay another night but hey these guys jumped right in and made a new platform within 24 hours, I was quite impressed.
When complete they installed new rub rail and backing, new ladder door and something new, covers for the davit locations, and provided all the hardware required to install the platform.
While I was there I got a tour of the facility in all areas by Steve Wheatley (manufacturing), Jeff Richardson (parts), Rod Mast (design engineering). Also had a chance to meet Kim Slocum and chatted a while with him.
I met a lot of great people while there and was able to get answers to some of my questions about my 270.
Here a a few pics of my visit, the large boat is a new 37', I was able to go inside and look around, very cool. Other boat is just getting it's deck. Other pics are the platform of the wrong color. So if anyone needs a beige platform for a 270 here is your chance.
