Has anyone on here built their own? I'm not wanting to spend 300-600$ on a platform and I don't want something permanent

A coworker of mine bought a 3 or 4 step folding ladder from Lowes and uses that. He put an eye bolt on the bottom and attaches it to the deck of his boat with a trunbuckle. works fine.

Look up cosco 2 step folding ladder

I use my cooler for now but also bought a dual step stool like posted above, will be having a platform built for the rear soon, was quoted 400-500$....Gonna cheap out on the pole though and get a 21 or 22ft aluminum pole made. Checkout strongarmproducts.com also

Issue with using a cooler or stool for the back is poling over the motor. a real platform is a world of difference

Better use some inside out frozen ice in that ice chest..... otherwise it's going to melt 8 minutes slower than a Coleman Extreme
