Original Casting Platform

Gator5729Gator5729 Stuart’ FLPosts: 9 Deckhand
I have what appears to be an original casting platform on my 1997 189 with pitting aluminum, screws to the fiberglass falling out, and generally just looks ready for a refresh though the fiberglass is in good shape. The platform is fixed to the anchor locker hatch with four posts and it looks like four large bolts on the under side of the hatch. I haven't removed the platform, so I'm not sure how big the holes in the hatch actually are yet. If anyone has replaced the original platform, what did you replace it with? Are there any options for a platform that is easily removable?
