    Does anyone know where I can order a hard rubber or plastic spacer for my platform? I am rehabbing a 2002 Willy 17. The rear support on the platform rolls around and attaches to the stern. There is a hard rubber or plastic spacer (anti-vibration?) between the platform and the stern - one inch thick by four inches.

    Thanks for the help.

    Maybe so, It has the look of starboard, eased (routed) on the side. And, I just happen to have a piece!

    Thanks.

    You can also use some of the backing (grip stuff) they use under an area rug to keep it from slipping. I have a huge piece that I used for all types of applications like this.

    Thanks. I have been asking around for a scrap piece. Man, that stuff is expensive.
