    Kawasaki 310 docking pads or bumpers?

    I have a 310 SE and am taking it to the lake with my son this next weekend. The place we are going has lots of resturants on the lake. We want to stop and have lunch but not sure how to dock the ski without banging it up? I have bumpers I hang on my boat but the jet ski really has no place to attach them. The lake has no shore around these places to anchor or beach it, just a wooden deck to tie off to. Any ideas?

    I just ordered these http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...i=30161&r=view
    Look pretty straight forward and won't scratch the ski. I also have a canyon dancer motorcycle grip tiedown I will drag along. It may come in handy?

    Here's another suggestion as My ski was getting beat up at a certain dock..

    I couldn't trust those suction cups on the hull so you tie a 2 ft length of boat rope and put a fat end knot and just put one under the front hood and one under the rear seat,seamed to work for me on a very rough water dock ..

    big mistake althought they look nice they dont stay put when other boats knock your ski up against a dock they just fall off. the ones i showed in the link actually secure on with an adjustable hook one end and a clip the other under your rub rail..

    Yeah it does. Seems like all of the barnacles and whatever else growing on the docks really do a number on it.

    Yeah i found a bunch of places that do, there's an Indian reservation near by that has 93 for 3.49 score. The other ones that I found are around $4. I normally fill up with cans before I head out but 3.49 isn't bad

    The places I will dock are in no wake zones. Water is usually glass smooth so it will not be banging the dock. If it was that bad I would never park it. I just need a cushion between the ski and dock when I tie it off. I think the suction cup pads should work well. I would not trust them if it was banging.

    All our docks are no wake zones but have you ever witnessed anyone following that rule.. the ones that will are the ones who have been damaged b4. What happens with the suction cup is the up and down motion dislodges the cups and the cushion either drops in the water or rides above the rub rail.
