    Built a stand today

    Today i woke up and headed to lowes for some pvc. I had a picture of suckmywake's stand and was going to build it off of his.

    What i would up with was slightly different. Mine is a little wide. Between the tubes its almost 23 inches. Is this too far apart? If so do you have any ideas to shorten it?

    i think it will be fine. looks good. its time for me to make another one. i had thought of making them for people. i would cut all the parts to length, mark them for easy assembly and ship them with the cleaner and glue. all they would nee would be the wheels.

    looks good. My bunks are only 17.5" wide. make sure someone helps you lift your craft, they're heavier than you think.... don't know what you ride but I needed help with my 1300r

    Stand looks great! What i do is strap the stand to the back of my trailer (directly behind ski) and pull the ski onto the cart (wet the rails if you are doing it by yourself) and then unstrap the stand and your ready to go!

    My only concern is the center brace, it might hang up on the back of the ski when sliding...

    here is my stand...

    what do you use to lube? im assuming something put on before the boat is set onto the bunks. I used water and it still wouldn't budge. only got it move about 4 inches and it was stuck. Had my dad and a friend help. didn't want to strain myself and lose valuable work/riding time.

    i use Seadoo Lube...

    any kind of oily spray or silicone spray...

    they even sell a product called "liquid rollers" ... makes the bunks real slick
