Try to find others with your exact same boat and talk to them if possible. There are quite a few options. A few key issues. Adequate support for the platform. Width of platform. And then what it does to your ride and performance of the boat. You're definitely impacting it by adding weight beyond the transom. On some boats, that is positive. On others, negative. Then how is it going to ride on the platform in rough conditions. It can be an issue if your rib is in the water with 2-3' of wave action.
