    pwc stored on 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

    Mop? Small squeegie? Should be easy enough, and I'd want to get that water off too.

    can you adjust your lift to give you a slight angle toward the back. Footwells will refill if left in the rain

    Is that amount of tilt enough to actually drain your foot wells completely?

    My Virage nose needs to be way up before it will fully drain, never mind the MSX, which only fully drains when pointing at the moon.

    Sponge to suck it up and towel dry. Why not fabricate a little ramp for the wells that angle to the rear so the water can't puddle while it's sitting?
    I'd lay down wax paper, spray it with waterproof expanding foam and then set the board at the appropriate angle. Now you have a damn near perfect fit and for the most part it should keep the water out when used in conjunction with a good scotch guarded cover.

    Just get a kids water gun, you know the type that looks like a hand pump that loads the water up from the nozzle-if your close to power a wet dry vac is the best to get every last drop of water from through-out the ski
