Noob Questions, Docking, Bunks, Anchor, General?
I just pick up my first WaveRunner Yesterday a 2013 FZR.
I have a few questions.
First I will be unloading at the ramp by myself most of the time. What is the normal procedure to dock it while I park my truck? How do you guys tie off?
Where is the preferred position of the bunks under the hull? Dealer just threw it on the trailer so bunks are all off and askew. I assume wide is better so it can sit low?
What is preferred way to anchor in shallow water and how shallow?
Thats about it for now, feel free to throw out some tips. I'm trying to get up to speed before I break it in.

I use a heavy duty bungee and wrap it around the handle bar; but not all docks have bumpers that are low enough for PWC, so just be careful about impact from waves; if you're on an ocean dock with barnacles and stuff you're going to need to be extra careful; maybe invest in some PWC bumpers or a protective blanket for the side. Sometimes your better off if you can walk the ski up on a sand beach and avoid the dock completely, just use common sense and watch out for rocks.
Here are some of my tips for noobs...

Launching by yourself can be easy or total pain in butt. If you got good dock, sandy beaches, good "no wake" area of launch, it's easy. If you got rocky shores, a boat dock that will beat your ski up, and/or waves breaking into launch area, it's not going to be fun to launch by yourself.
