    Spark lift

    I have a 2up spark on order. I'm looking for a lift. I've considered the "tie down lift" which appears to be a rail system that pulls the pwc onto a dock. The reviews vary which makes me nervous. I'm very interested in a drive on floating lift, but the cheapest I can find is over $1000 for a hunk of plastic. The spark is so light, It shouldn't need much. Anyone have any suggestions on a decent lift or float that won't break the bank, around $500?

    Local Craigslist or pay the piper. They aren't cheap.

    For my spx I have a couple heavy duty pallets that I just slide it on and that works great, free and no assembly.

    local craigslist, some go for pretty cheap. I have 2 matching wheely dock lx's that I picked up last year for $2000. pretty good deal considering they're each $1500 new.

    Yeah, that was my original plan, to get a whip mooring system and just leave it in... But I was getting paranoid after reading some other posts where people are saying never leave the ski in the water. It will be full time on a lake in a fairly protected cove. But I do leave during the week and didn't want to come up on a Friday to find my spark 6 ft under... Literally. If others have had success just leaving the ski in the water for the season, maybe I'll go that route. (I'm a first time ski owner)

    Plenty of people leave their ski in the water without issue. However, there are horror stories and every action (or lack-therof) has risk. You need to determine what is right for you. The Spark is so light though, I feel like you could find a happy medium.

    This is how I store them, I put them on the pallets on shore in the winter and move the ski and pallets to the water in the summer, The ski just slides right on. It works good. the lake is dam controlled so I do not have to worry about the water level.
