    Don't leave your skis on a floating dock.

    Just don't.

    Not my ski btw.

    I have left a ski IN the water for more than a year and more than 2 skis for 6+ years on pwc floats in hot super salty water(south south Florida),
    And my motors have never looked like that,,Even after being sunk in a hurricane.
    Looks more like a ski that never had the seat off for more than a minute..
    Needed fresh water rinse down and hours of seat off time ..Thats my 2 worthless cents.

    In Sean's defence this is not his ski. It is a ski he is working on.

    Sean you should have clarified that in your OP

    Yes, I would cry if my ski looked even close. It's a customers ski.

    +1 There is a big difference between no maintenance and employing a floating dock. Poor post title if you ask me.

    +1 My Polaris Virage lived 100% of its life on a floating dock. Those are some hard years. No matter how many times it was flushed out or had fresh water sprayed in the pump area, a boat would go by and splash a little into the ride plate/pump. It is eventually what warped the wear ring. Not to mention there always being salt air around. The ski degrades so much faster.... Just my observation.

    That is my experience as well, you may get away with it in fresh water but every floating dock I have seen has left marks on the bottom of the hull and has needed a pump and rideplate at a minimum.
