    Suggestions? Truck Lift.. Fuel shutoff?

    Hello everyone, I would like some input on a lift I built to carry my 05' RXT. I built a lift that winches the pwc from the water up above the cab and angled down to bottom/back of the box. Now when I put the unit up there it is sitting at a min. of 30 deg angle. When I set it back into the water it didn't start very well. Does anyone think I need a fuel shutoff? If so where should I put it?

    Also how strong is the front hook on these Seadoo's?

    pics please! I saw a rxp being towed at about 35-40 mph, on plane.....and 2 people were on it while it was being towed, unfreakin' believable. I would have to say it's pretty strong.

    Same here Steve, the front eyelets are made from far better products than the pump shoe.

    I have a similar problem when I leave my ski on the trailer nose up. It always starts on the second try though.
