Thinking about renting a boat slip for the summer for my 2 ski's and seadoo jet boat.
This would be a 30ft slip for a 20ft Seadoo Speedster 200 (430hp) and 2 04 RXPs. I would be able to run down to the slip any day after work and jump on the boat or skis. There would be no boat lift or ski lift that I am aware of.
Can the skis and boat sit in the water for extended periods of time? why or why not specifically?
Any other precautions or suggestions?

better have a floating dock and some bilge pumps just incase.

Thinking about having them in for the summer. 4 months?
Was not planning on doing any unnecessary mods to the skis or boat unless absolutely needed.

So you just wanna let them float for the summer with no bilge pumps or anything? Bad Idea...

Need to know if anyone leaves their ski in the water and if bilge pumps are necessary or what a cost effective way is to leave them in the water without spending $1000 ea on floating docks?

I used to have my boat slipped in the water over the summer at the Hammond Marina In Indiana..When we would walk to our slip we would see people who left their skis slipped and OMG i cannot tell you how bad the algae was on the bottom of the skis...And if it is on the bottom that means its is in the pump and being sucked into the cooling system....IF it were me i would see about a dry dock if you could...If they are not avaliable then i woould be sure to take it out frequently and clea/flush it out..also like others had stated,bilge pumps are a must for any boat that sits..

Do the other boats in the slips have bottom paint on them? I know where we are one week in the water and algee is already starting to grow.

Wondering what the cheapest floating pwc dock is that I could use? I found these on craigslist... Wondering if they would work!! I could attach 3 of them together, space them out so that there is one in between the 2 jetskis and one on each end...
||| Jetski 1 ||| Jetski 2 |||
I would be fine with cleaning the algae once a month from the bottom of the jetskis as necessary.

Honestly, is it really worth it? Couldn't you just keep your ski and trailer at the marine and just drop them in the water when you wanna ride? That way you can pull them out and lock them up every night.
