I have a 36C and am
wondering if anyone has an opinion about how to tie off stern. Historically I have not cross tied off to swim platform because I have heard that it was not recommended. I like the idea because I can cross tie keeping the boat off the fingers. Thoughts?

On any boat crossing lines allows better control of position with tide changes.

I believe the question is specifically about tying to the swim platform not so much the crossing of the lines. Are the cleats on this boat strong enough to handle the load or will it risk damaging the transom by pulling on the bolts that hold the platform.

The deal here is this:

Your year, actually after 2005/06, Silverton put a big back plate under the swim platform where the cleats bolt through. With that said, although the cleats are well secured, I would be concerned about the rest of the swim platform and the strength to hold the boat.

Me,
I would never use the cleats on the swim platform to secure the boat for any length of time, transient,sure, boat not at her home berth.

Dunno about the 36C, but on our 42C we routinely cross-tie to the cleats on our swim platform.

The platform is epoxied, braced with 4 struts, and also bolted to the boat with backing plates... and it also routinely carries our (currently ~200-lb)tender/motor/etc. (Crossed lines over our dinghy is often a bit of its own problem.)

We haven't seen any evidence of stress on the platform.

Thanks for the advice. Do know if anyone at Silverton is answering phones but I may call them as well.

Haven't heard lately. The last I heard it was temporary but we know what that means

The Silverton website has apparently been brought up again, this time with a new number for parts assistance. The new Parts guys is at the St. Augustine Marine Center.

My guess is that, while he may be able to look up parts numbers (he'll need the HIN), he may or may not be familiar with engineering of systems (like swim platforms and so forth). Updates from interaction always welcome :)
