    Saw one last week that was working good. I'll try to descrbe.

    2 poles, about 5ft long each. Two hooks on each end.
    One hook in the front of the gpr. One on the rail.

    On the back, he had an insert in the rear hole of the gpr deck. The hook on the pole was attached here, and the other end was up on the pontoon deck rail.


    Basically, it kept the ski at about a foot distance at all times and it looks like he could pull it off/on in about a minute.

    Mooring whips, an anchor, or a Hull Hugr.
