    Leaving Ski In FRESH Water

    So I have a cottage, and I have waterfront. I have my own dock, and I'm wondering if I could leave my ski tied to it for the whole summer? I do live there for the summer. It would be driven, and checked on everyday. The lake is VERY clean. The ski is a GP1200r.

    I would put it on a lift. The hulls get pretty nasty looking from sitting in the water all summer.

    Hull blisters would be my concern. Lifts are cheap on craigslist

    Hmm.. What if I took it out every 2 weeks to be cleaned? My boats bottom painted to prevent the yellowish stain. No lifts here in Nova Scotia on kijiji or craigslist. I might grab one next time I go to the US.

    I'd be concerned about the ski sinking.
    Skis are not designed to be left in the water.
    I've seen people buy a junk trailer and back it into the water enough to make it act as a ramp.

    That was my main concern. But I really can't back it in and out off the water every day as it'll turn into a PITA. I guess my only option is getting a ramp?

    I'm thinking if I can get one used in the states.. They're pricey new.

    Lots and lots of rock. In NS you have to have a permit to make a beach on your waterfront.

    So leaving this ski tied up to the dock would give me a high chance of sinking the ski?
