I think it should work you will just have to leave the winch connected as you back it down the ramp. Not something i would want to have to do. I am usually the one who has to back the skis into the water and I have found that it is easier to back in and hit the brakes to launch the skis (riders already on board). But that may be just me.

For loading a PWC,some resistance works better to hold the ski on while you tie off the front.
I installed some "easy glides"(plastic pads) on my trailer ,the PWC does not stay on the bunks if it is not running.I need someone at the front to tie it up.
In my opinion,your PWC would slide back off if you do not hold it on the trailer,running the engine.Might be a pain to load the PWC especially with an inexperienced rider.

you might ask hydrotoys about them I think he has them on a trailer and likes them.

stsperformance. I just found your thread and thought I'd share my thoughts. I changed to rollers last year from boards with teflon glides on top. Both are good. The rollers Don't roll as easy as you think they would. In fact the glides with spray wax on them are about the same. I do like the rollers because they are completely maintinance free, but on the down side, they rattle and make alot of noise when your using/moving the trailer without the ski on it.

yes, they work well, and are easy to adjust too.
