    Lifting the Jet Ski

    I need to get to the hull on my RXT to clean up some scratches in the gel coat. I have a 2 ton engine lift and the nylon strap sling but the problem is the runners (the 2x4's, whatever you call them) on my trailer extend the entire length of the hull so I have no way to place the sling on the flat part. Any ideas on how I could lift it to put the sling on? Is it safe to temporarily lift it by the tiedowns (u-hooks) on the back long enough to put the sling underneath?

    Thanks!

    i wouldn't trust the tie down hooks to lift your 10K+ pwc.
    use a propper lift harness.

    jerrys got them in the store.

    I agree with mjammer. I can't get any vehicles...maybe a motorcycle in my garage once the double trailer is in there, and you have an RV

    lol

    I'd like to see pics of the entire garage, all I've seen are little teasers here and there.

    I'll take some pictures tomorrow. Here's a few more teasers. I ran out of room and had to build storage next to the garage also had to add an enclosed trailer to hold atv's. BTW, the motorhome takes up half the garage

    Even with all the Doo's in there, still have room to work.
