Who likes my new dive platform

I have 3/16th” aluimin diamond plate plan to use as a dive plateform big fish landing . will fab up two 1/16" angle bracing for underneath surport.

thinking of adding a teak or bamboo wood around the outside of plateform.

I am concernded w/ the smoothside of the diamond will rust? I’m thinking it will rust emdiately notice the top section of the door I made notice the surface rust.

I intend on flappey wheel the rust then prime the whole area for paint I have decided
Gunmetal darkish grey for exterior/interia cabin above waterline
I always liked this shade of silver advantages
1.cool looking
2.duck hunting ready
3.other stuff
What do you Guys think of the color selection.

Hi There,
I took a look at your picture. My conern would be that the platofmr might act like a knife and cut lines and people if they are climbing out of the water.

Regarding rust, 1stly I don't see any rust on the door you are talking about.

2ndly, aluminum doesn't rust, it will be covered with oxidation which will protect the metal so long as it doesn't remain submerged for any length of time.

you should make it wrap around the sides as much as trailer will allow and what looks proportional.

Then it will look "custom" as opposed to "some guy bolted on a flat piece of metal".

Make it so you can stand on either side and play with the undisturbed water as it goes by VS standing on the back and looking down at the wake.

I asure you I won't be referred to as some Guy who bolted """"

I plan to have a wooden covering the prerimeter of platform there won't be any sharp edges.

update plan to have the tube welded to diamond plate and the triangle surport

it will bolt to the transom though the triangle and bolt to diamond plate onto of the POD so it will be removable.

the exposed triangle I was planning on glueing a slited rubber tube to cover the metal *even though it it smoothely grinded.

hows it look?
