Swimming Platform Regulations

Are there any regulations concerning the design and construction of integrated swimming platforms for power boats?

Not that I've ever heard of. Why do you ask?

There may be some ABYC regulations on it, but nothing I am aware of directly.

- If animals weren't meant to be eaten then they wouldn't be made of food.

Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning to people on or around swim platform while engines are running!

The only ABYC regulation I'm aware of is that my daughters must be pushed in if they are standing on the swim platform in their bathing suits.
