Hello, and bathing platform help

Post by Mike T » Thu Oct 10, 2019 7:56 am

We've just moved back to inland motor cruising having spent 17 years coastal sailing. We've bought a 1985 mkII Fairline Mirage. She has slipped gracefully from the 'old' into the 'vintage' and with new carpet and upholstery is looking a treat. Her twin AQ125Bs run beautifully with only 1200 hours in 34 years!

But at some stage in the last 7 years her bathing platform has been removed. It was a fibre-glass, full width one typically of the last of the MkIIs.

I'm looking to fit a new platform, but do not want the original fibre-glass type (they are vulnerable against moorings and locks on non-tidal waters). Is there a source from which we might get a new original Fairline chrome and teak one, or a forum/site on which a secondhand one might be found?

Thank you.
