    Poor Mans Jetski Stand

    Needed a roller stand so I used some casters that Kirkf350 gave me (free!), used some scraps of 4x4s around the house, 1 scrap piece of treated 2x4, 1 4x4 and 1 landscaping timber from Lowes, had some long lag bolts from a wooden playhouse I had to tear down, a little time and about $8.00 Ive also got some remnant pieces of indoor/outdoor carpet that I saved from an old patio that I will be installing. I know others have posted pics and how to do this in other ways, just thought Id share my version of the poor mans stand. Cheap and Very strong.

    Thats brilliant, also it wont damage the underside of the ski.

    How do you get the ski off your trailer onto the stand ?

    It takes 2 people to pull a gpr off the trailer. I usually spray the bunks down with $1.00 silicone from walmart

    Liquid Rollers- costs a little more but works better.

    I mounted a winch to the wall. Put the stand against the wall in front of the winch, back the trailer in front of the stand, then just winch it onto the stand.
    When you want it back on the trailer just use the trailer winch to bring it back. Very easy when nobody is there to help and you dont risk straining something. I also use that method when I switch from the single trailer to a freinds double trailer and back.

    Great idea. Post some pics of the winch and you moving a ski from the trailer to the stand. A must know for all that pull skis on and off trailers.

    I use an engine hoist/cherry picker to lift my ski (XLT) off the trailer and onto a stand. I'd love to have a winch setup in my garage, but donmt have access to the joists / beam to rig something up safely.

    I constantly move my XLT form my single to my dual trailer when I go riding with some1 else & with that silicone from Walmart, I dont have a problem at all. Now my question is, aren't those wheels a bit flimsy for all that weight? I actually have a spare bunk that I took off my dual trailer when I refurbished it that's in great shape. I can cut it in half & use it to make a PWC dolly like urs but those wheels don't convince me.
