    Have a look in the other forums on here. I am sure a few other guys have posted info on PWC stands they built themselves.

    Be careful. You don't want to drop your 500+ lb machine onto the floor if your stand fails!
    I have seen photos of a few that have failed.

    I purchased a pair of Aquacart AQ-19 'storage' carts, and have been quite happy with them. Adjustable bunk spacing, good strength, easy to work around, and powder coated finishes.

    I chose the AQ-19 so the height was close to my trailer bunk height. Easy to slide the hull between the two, especially after I applied Liquid Rollers to the trailer bunks.

    The bigger the casters are, the better. Make sure you get locking casters, so it doesn't roll away on its own, or when you are leaning on it as you work.

    no you wanna build your good enough to hold your 500 + machine

    you some how but a stress point in a knot in the wood or you didnt weld an area so well , your ski is gonna look nice falling down to the ground possibly doing a belly flop and ruining the hull

    The stand needs to be strong enough to handle the machine weight, plus your own weight if you lean or fall onto it, plus a big safety factor (say double the max possible load).

    Build it to handle close to 1,000 lbs, rather than 300 lbs.
