    Looking for info on 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

    For assembly, I used these, from Lowes.

    Thank you very much for your helpful advice.
    Going to make this my weekend project and put my home improvement projects on hold.

    If I can ask you few more questions?
    What type of 2X4s do you recommend. Was going to go to Lowes tomorrow and saw they have a very wide selection of 2X4s to choose from.
    I don't just want to get the cheapest one and have it fall apart in a few years. Is there one or a few you can recommend?
    And in your post you had said "I used the extra wood to reinforce down the sides (where the one in the pic has only 3 pieces, mine has 5)"
    Which ones were you referring to? Is it the uprights you are referring with the main X-Blocks? I didn't see any extra wood going down the side?
    And lastly, did you ever put anything on to strap you Ski in the front and back to the cart to keep the ski from sliding off or did it pretty much stay secure on the cart?

    Thanks again. I very much appreciate your help!
    Lucky

    Edit
    Also, on the Main X's is 31.5 Inches on both sides from end to the 22.5 Degree cut or is that the total length of the board including both 22.5 Degree cuts?

    You can use any old 2x4s, as long as they don't have any cracks or holes. The cheapest won't fall apart. I suggest using pressure treated lumber for the bunks, though, and some outdoor carpet to cover them. If you can, use stainless steel staples to attach the carpet to the bunk. You do not need to worry about it sliding off, as long as you're moving it along a relatively level surface. I have i-hooks on either side of my cart, though, which helps me anchor the cart to the trailer when I'm sliding it on and off. When you're going to slide it on/off, remember to wet the bunks with water, first. That'll make it much easier.

    Get yourself a can of Liquid Rollers bunk lube for your dolly bunks. You will love yourself in the end.
