Leaving the skis in the water?
Hey guys, I am taking the skis and heading up to Michigan next week to ride. I was just wondering if I would be OK to leave to skis tied to the dock behind the cottage or If I should pull them out of the water. I will probably get them in the water wednesday afternoon and pull them out saturday afternoon. Or I can pull them out every day, the dock isnt to far away. Thanks guys.

Fresh water im guessing? So skis have a habit of disappearing where you will be? Ski can only be started with its own key so take the keys with you make sure they are tied up well. I dont see why you would have a problem

My 2 Doos spend every weekend in the water, no problem. I do make sure to have the key with me.

Mine are always in the water the entire time I'm at the cottage.

Lemme tell about on that you don't wanna repeat....
Had a crack in the O ring in one of the drain plugs. Ski slowly took on water over night. Resonator filled with enough water that the ski wouldn't start. Had to tow it five miles to a ramp. pulled it outa the water....drained it...it started...but lost too much time in the day and ended up running one ski the next day.
A $.10 part took out a $11K machine. It sucked.
