    Posted: March-14-2018 at 12:31am
I recently purchased a 1976 ski tique, which is the ski boat I learned to ski the course behind. I would like to retro fit the gauge assembly and add a swim platform. Anybody have any good resources for these items. Some guys are Harley guys and some guys restore important things, like really great boats! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Gregory,
Welcome to CCfan.
Fill us in on your ideas with the gauges. New gauges or new layout?

Regarding the swim platform, take a look in the site store. Great Jatoba platforms and very high quality however, you will need the brackets. There is someone making removable platform brackets which are handy. I'll do some searching to see if I can find a link. The alternate is fabricating them up. I see you are a mechanical contractor so grab some 7 ga. 304 with a #4 on it and hand it to your welder. .

Welcome to the site. Go to Parts Wanted and post that you need platform brackets and a Ski Platform and it is very likely someone has one on this site. You may have to just watch the parts for sale are of this forum on a regular basis. People are often parting out boats and the parts you need will show up several times each year.   The transoms of these boats can be different by model so not all brackets will fit your application.

If you cant find them here/used, or you feel like spending the big buck on the CCF store platform and new brackets, these guys will custom make your brackets with the specific rise and swing that you measure/specify for your boat. I had them do mine. They may have the Tique in their data base, but swing can be platform specific, so it is best to measure and give them your parameters.

What's that a chunk of stainless with a 4 written on it in magic marker?

Or did you leave out a word like finish?
