Turtle Platforms Any Good?

I am trying to give my painted turtle more space and was wondering if turtle platforms/docks are any good?

they work, yes, but IMO and from years of turtle keeping, it's not natural. secured driftwood, rock piles, sand bar w a tank divider....all this is their natural basking habitat. i have a 75g planted tank for my turtles, and they have a root system to climb out of the water onto, and gives the fish a playground lol

I built a platform for our turtle out of pvc pipe with eggcrate covering the ramp and platform to allow the turtle to easily climp out of the water. Funny thing is that the turtle is a Musk turtle and never comes out of the water. It just uses the ramp to sit on and breath or eat.. Lol!
