This exactly what I'm looking for. Does anyone know where I might get one or ideas for building one? Thanks. That beautiful teak seat/platform is also seen in . Cf. Photo 43-04.
It began its boating life as a swim platform on a larger boat.

The same picture got my attention too and I asked a simliar question. Check the folowing links:

I'm embarassed to admit that I still have not built my own stern seat. I have this big hunk of warped teak in my workshop and and its been there for ten years. This is the perfect application for it (the cutting into strips would negate the warp, but I guess it will wait a little longer.

If I can find the plans for the Easport seat, I bet I could con my father-in-law to build it.
I'm still trying to find a casting deck like this. Was it custon made or purchased?

Choclab: I think I have drawings for the Eastport seat. Email your address and I will check my files. If I have them, I'll mail copies to you.

I seem to recall that forum member Barry's stern seat in 43-04 (same seat in the last two links above) did start life as a transom step. I'm sure you could hunt up a correctly sized teak transom step somewhere, but I'll bet there a little spendy.

ChocLab, I'll forward you a picture of another seat that a forum member sent me, too. Its more Easportish....

Thanks, Eventually, I'd like to have both. One for the wife, and one for me, if you know what I mean!
Any ideas where I might start for the swim platform? Specific boat manufacturers?

I'd start by looking on the tail end of a Ski Nautique... You'd only find something like that on the back of an inboard, and it would likely be a narrow thing like a Ski boat.
