    We’re getting used to our “new” boat and using the ladder for the swim platform makes me nervous. I’m not a lightweight (240lbs) and am wondering how much the platform can handle.

    I’ve been wondering if adding SS struts on either side would be advised or not? Has anyone done this?

    I weigh more and haven’t had issues with the ladder on our 04 185 whatever that is worth. They appear to be pretty strong.
