I've always thought my platform was kind of spongy, especially when I put the added weight of a dinghy on it. I'm now looking at putting a more substantial davit system on it, and am considering adding some additional bracing to help support the weight better. Boogaboo on YouTube recently posted a mod he did for his custom swimplatforms.com install, where he installed an additional 5 or 6 SS tubes to the transom and platform. I'm considering doing something similar but thought I would check here to see if anyone has done similar. I couldn't find any threads on it that still had pics. My current setup is attached, I can't believe it doesn't have any additional bracing!
