    Need advice for a floating dock

    I have a '08 GTX that I want to keep on a quiet canal. A floating dock seems the best way to go for my situation. But, there are enough of them on the market that choosing the right one is difficult for me. I've narrowed it down to the Wheely Dock LS or the EZ Port 3. There is a big difference in price. The rollers on the EZ Port look like they are better and will be less wear on the hull. One of the reasons that the EZ Port costs so much is that it has to pass thru more hands before you get it. Are those of you with Wheely Docks happy with them? I'm not looking to spend any more money that I have to, but want a good product that I will be happy with. Help! Thanks.

    look for a used one. they are around, and much less money. i have several ezport3's and ezport2's
    i dont love them, but they are ok.
    i really liked the sportportXLT's but they dont have rollers, so the new heavy skis are just too hard to slide off.
    EZdocks are hollow and crack and sink, they are all uneven , hard to walk around, even when you have 2 bolted next to each other. i got 5 in a row, always twisting ankles and bashing shins. trying to get around on them. the couplers break every year. they hold alot of dirt and crud inbetween/under the rollers, hard to wash out.
    rear roller always under water is covered with growth.
    if they made a updated sportport i would jump at the opportunity.
    but since the ezdocks seem to be the only good option right now,i am stuck with these, plus theres alot around, so easy to pickup used.

    I keep mine on a JetDock at the marina. If you get one of these, buy extra cubes for each side so you can walk around the ski safely... Ron

    I am looking at floating docks also, anybody else have input on the different models?
    so the jetdocks are easy to slide the skis on and off and remain stable with multiple people standing on them?

    Those Jetdocks look nice. Great way to store your boat on the water.

    With the longer IS skis, you would need at least 1 extra set of blocks to make it longer. The marina that I'm at won't mess with the docks, so an IS is definately out of the question for me. I couldn't stand to see the ride plate sitting in the water all summer, even though it supposed to be fresh water... Ron

    Look at shoreport docks

    http://www.boatliftwarehouse.com/doc...r/pwc_dock.php

    We have 7 of them in one spot. They are super easy to load and launch. They are also easy to put in/take out. It took 3 of us 1.5 hours to put all 7 in the water and get em mounted up this spring. I think they are a little less than the easy port model as well.

    Please offer your opinions

    What about Glide-n-Ride, which is also sold as Wheely Dock?
