    Wood....










    Sorry Bro. I had to.

    Now, on a serious note, what are you doing, building a dock from scratch?

    floating docks i assume???
    i have EZport III's
    i like the rollers, dont like the raised bow area.
    if anyone has found a dock that has ample walk around room, along the sides of teh ski, and around the bow, let me know.
    i prefered the platform size of the sportportXLT but you gotta ahve rollers for these big skis now.
    i think a few manufacturers have EXTRA big floating docks , like made for small boats, that would actually be ideal now for these big skis. that is if money is no object.

    i have people tell me the rollers will seize then scratch the gelcoat

    was looking at the jet docks which are like big black lego blocks that lock together very pricey but look sturdy and solid

    carolina docks look good also but not sure

    i live on a river that becomes rough at times and weekend traffic cab be heavy ,skis would only used on weekends so docks must withstand weeks abuse without skis on them .

    those black docks are way to hot in the sun, and hold tons of crap in the cracks, i dont like them.
    dont hold skis real nice either, they always want to slide back into the water, unless you use a bow winch.
    ezdock also has some special new docks specifically designed for seadoo's??

    ezdock is the way to go. those black docks do get way too hot and it is a pain in the ass to get skis off of them, 3 seaters being the hardest!

    Nope, I don't like the jet docks. Easy to get onto, but difficult to launch. Some have an opening in the middle that's just waiting to send you into the water.
    Most of the fuel docks I see nowadays have some sort of roller on them. If properly maintained-no prob.
