pwc on a lift
prob a stupid question but i store my ski on a lift when not in use, is there a trick to getting both the footwells drained so they dont sit there full of water till you use it again? ive tried rocking it but this seems dangerous, any input would be great

is the ski on a trailer right now
is it on a lift?
if it's on a trailer just make sure the ski is tied down and lift the front of the trailer...
if it's on a lift, and you don't want to til it.
just get like a towel... lay it down get all the water you can and squeeze it out, and keep doing that.

Find a little fluid hand pump and take a few minutes to get all the water out after riding. It will make the mats last a lot longer.

I use a big sponge. It's easier to wring out than a towel, and holds more water. First I swipe it along the footwell to shove most of the water out the back, then sop up the rest.

I've been dealing with the same thing. I think I'm going to replace the 2x4 bunks with 2x8's and cut them on an angle so the nose is on a slight up angle. Won't work on all ski's, but some. . .I think.

I use a super soaker water cannon and it works perfect! You will need a towell to wipe out any remaining moisture!

just use a skinny hose a couple feet long, stick it in the footwell and place the other end lower and suck a lil on the end of the hose to siphon it out, just before the water hits your mouth just let it drain, then just get the lil left with a towel

you guys have some weird ways of doing stuff..
it would be like 100 times easier to take like a sponge, a towel, or a shirt and just suck and squeeze.. instead of like trying to siphon out the water or take your gas leaf blower..
or you can get to the local rental shop, rent a canoe and a fork lift, take the canoe and prop it up at a 45^ angle and set the ski under. take the fork lift to lift the ski..
i put the tip of the canoe in the intake grate the water will for sure come out!
