    shuttlecraft rails for seadoo jet ski

    I got a shuttlecraft to mate with my seadoo GTX, just trying to figure out, can I grease the rails to make the ski slide in and out easier, and if so what type or looking for suggestions. Thanks for replys!

    I recently purchased a older 1998 Shuttlecraft to use with my 2004 GTX. The Shuttlecraft was setup with the rails for a GTX, but the older style hull. So, I had to cut and reshape the front section of the rails to get the 04 GTX to fit (newer hull flares out in the front). I have tried both grease and WD40 to help the ski slide in and out easier; it does help, but not a lot. I don;t believe it hurts anything to try whatever lubricant you want on the fiberglass rails until you find what works best for you.
