    Launching jet ski on the beach?

    I'm going down to Jacksonville, FL in a couple of weeks. I have a 2WD truck. Should I be worried about getting my truck stuck in the sand when launching my jet ski?

    yes you should be worried i wouldnt try it unless i had 4wd but thats just me. i would just launch it on the ramp to avoid any headaches.

    I just back from Florida this past weekend and saw this unique location where jetskier go and launch their jet ski. I thought it was neat. I will probably end up trading my truck in for a 4wd.

    Jacksonville, FL I don't know the name of the location. It's a calm water like a lake until you ride out the launching area then the water gets really rough current.

    so it was actually in Jax. I ask because I live an hour south of Jax and I am somewhat familiar with the area. I was trying to figure out where you were talking about. Ski the river it has a lot more to offer especially on the south side of Palatka. There are multiple creeks to run, lots of places to stop and eat, several fresh water springs to visit and you can go from glass to very rough depending on where you are at.

    if you just let out some air in your tires it will make it easier to drive in sand and less of a chance of getting stuck. and if you do get stuck im sure someone there will help pull you out

    I drive on the beaches of the North Carolina outer banks and would not even think about trying it without 4wd (with the tire pressure at about 18-20 lbs) much less trying to launch and retrieve a ski.
