Default Possible deck for someone

At gander mtn they are trying to get rid of a few aluminum platforms. I'm assuming thor original use was for putting them next to boats so you could get in and out of them at the store. Legs are adjustable, but would probably need to be cut off to go on a boat. The top is made of some non slip material in the form of slats. They look to be 3 1/2 to 4ft square. They are 199 a piece I think, and there are two.

I'll double check the price and get a better look at the top when I go in to work today.

Ok, the slate are wood with small gaps between them with aluminum bracing. Looks like they are solid and could be coated with Bedliner or paint with no slip addative. Could also be removed easily for some other decking. They are 199.99. They might go lower on them, just ask for a manager and talk to him.

This is at the Joliet store. They are out front by the trailers.

Joe,
Just a warning, those platforms are nice, but they are HEAVY!!!! I looked at them myself. Considering their size, that's alot of weight for basically a one man platfor (I would guess about 3' x 3'). I think part of the reason they are so heavy is the wood platform insert at the top, which you could replace, but after paying $200, then adding more money to add an aluminum deck, makes that more than I wanted to invest in something that just wasn't that big. Who knows though, might work for you, just wanted to share my thoughts... Now if you could make them an offer, maybe the deal might be worth it... Anyway, that's my .02

If you're looking to build a deck, I ran into a heck of a deal today on some T-channel aluminum tubing. This stuff is strong as heck, assembles with special brackets so you don't have to have it welded, and is pretty darned reasonable. I'm going to post on the project I started and will have pics up in just a bit. If you like what you see, send me a PM and I'll forward the contact info to the place I found it at. As a matter of fact, they had a 4' x6' frame all put together that they said they would make me a deal on, but I already was going with a 5' x 6' deck so it wouldn't have worked for me...
