I always keep the ski in the garage, but im going down to the lake this weekend and trailering. Were staying for a couple nights, and there wont be room on the dock for the ski. Im planning to moor a little offshore (the docks in a cove). What do you guys do? Ill probably bring come cinderblocks, a mooring line with a clip, and a shock absorber that you loop part of the line around. Im gonna make a loop thatll go thru the eye of the ski (like on the trailer) thats big enough to keep the clip from hitting the ski and will prevent it from scratching the plastic eye. Anything else I should think about? idk about keeping the ski in the water for a few days, either? I dont have a bilge pump.......water in the bilge? leaks I dont know about? etc......

You can 't tie-off a boat that is at the dock?

My big concern would be water leaking into the hull. I had my '03 GTX SC in the water for a week one time, and on the last day it felt real heavy. When I pulled it out on the trailer, lots of warm water came out the drains. That's why I keep it on a Jet Dock now. Apparently, the bailer tubes didn't get the water out, or I was going too slow...

Well, you can go out and buy a temporary morring system which is nothing more then a long corkscrew design that you hand drill into the bottom with a long rope.
What i did at my Lake House, is i took a 5 gallon bucket and poured a bag of quick set mixing cement into with a I hook sticking out the top or anything thats metal that you can take a rope too, then just drop that off the back of the ski or bury it out there and our alll set!!

Hey Bro, might save you some hassle. I was just looking for "stuff" for my ski and came across this on eBay. Looks simple..cheap, convenient. Might work..

find yourself an empty 16 oz. plastic pop bottle and tie that in series to make a buoy. That way when you take off for a ride, you can locate the line again without having to go down and find it every time.....
