    How to build a Sea Doo stand

    Thanks to everyone who helped me with my post on how to clean my Sea Doo covers.
    Like I explained in that thread, I'm doing home improvement projects and can't put the trailer with Sea Doos in my garage.
    But I can fit the Sea Doos by them selves on a stand

    I found a thread from 3 years ago about someone wanting to build a stand out of PVC.
    With how heavy my Sea Doos are, I would want something more sturdy but can't afford 2 steel ones.

    Anyone have any specs or plan they can share on how to build a Sea Doo stand out of 2X4s or wood for that fact?

    Thanks as I've always got great advice from here.
    Lucky

    Ok, well got my started and half of it put together. But I'm just looking at it and saying to myself; Do I trust this to hold my 870 Lbs Seadoo?
    I need them bad right now to get them out of the heat/direct sun light.
    I see the pictures holding up the RXT (I think that's what it is) but is it going to be stable.
    Seems like I should make the bases wider to hold the SeaDoo more on the outsides. Just seems its going to flip on it's side if I try to roll it the wrong way!

    Build it out of wood. Wood can hold up a tree 100 ft tall. Imagine how much that weighs. Mine is wood, and it hasn't even creaked.

    Probably one of the most important things is the wheels. The bigger and easier rolling they are the more stable it will be when you are moving it around.

    OK, that's 3 I've seen on the wood stands now. I feel a little more comfortable now.
    I've been using LOCTITE Power grab as I've been screwing the screws in. Plus I've been per-drilling screw holes with a 1/16 drill bit

    Just noticed this morning that 3 of my uprights have cracks in them where the screws are in the lower runner.
    I'm going to have to replace them or if someone has another idea of how to treat them that would be great?

    I do have 5 uprights on each runner just cause as I thought it would be better to be safe than sorry.
    Thanks for the info on the casters. Once everything was put together I was going to go to Harbor Freight and get some good ones.

    The seat is from Black Tip : http://www.watercraftsuperstore.net/...Jetsports.html

    The casters are from LOWES and are rated at 350 pounds each. 5 inch diameter.

    4 of them cost more than the rest of the materials combined; but it rolls right over the expansion joints in the garage floor with out hardly shaking - with the ski on it.

    Dont think I'd sweat the cracks buddy. Hell, after the wood finished drying out on mine - it opened up gaps up to 1/4"...

    ...and paint it.
    When i build one for my SPARK - it'll be painted.
