using the swim platform is all about how you boat...if you are mostly in marinas...not important....

dingy, diving, emergencies, etc...etc....the swim platform is your connection to the world outside your boat...so it DOES become a big deal...but only for those that enter or need to get close to the water on a daily basis....occasionally climbing down a ladder is no big deal or if you are still young or don't have a dog that needs to get there (though at some point getting a dog to the dingy is black magic for ANY boat).
