    Wink Trailering a long distance trip

    I am going to North Carolina next week to visit family and i am driving and want to bring my jetski with me it will be about an 1100 mile round trip. I want to protect the front of the jetski from rocks and other road debris that could possibly hit the jetski from the rear tires of car, do you guys have any suggestions on how to protect the jetski from such debris while driving.

    Use a factory OEM cover.

    DO NOT use a cover unless you want it to beat dull spots in your paint while it flaps, and I promise you it will. Don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.

    Thats why I said use the factory OEM cover, no aftermarket ones. They fit correctly and with the Vacu Hold vents they trailer beautifully. I have done thousands miles with OEM covers with no problems. The one time this year I towed without the covers I got a stone chip in my newly painted hood. Even if the cover should leave some rash on the ski, its nothing a quick hit with a buffer can't fix. Wax on the ski will help too

    Ive used oem yamaha covers for years would have to adjust them every couple of hours on the road. I Tried the jettribe this year it it didnt move with the added extra starps to strap in to the trailer as well. NY-Florida and back. Even though they advertise it as waterproof it is not! Sheet underneath was soaked after a rain storm.

    I have a Jet Tribe cover for my SHO and the extra straps and fitment are mint. I have driven 1,000km (600+mile) journeys with it no dramas. Every time I drive the cover is on. Our aussie roads can be shit with loose stones everwhere. Zero scuffing, zero issues, fits like a glove. As stated above if you're worried slip a bed sheet underneath or try this http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=52366

    What about protecting the bottom of the hull from rocks coming up from the rear tires of my vehicle? I have kinda sorta looming mud flags but I don't trust that they will prevent all stones and debris from hitting the jetski. My jetski is my baby she has a few scratches but I bought her used and well the owner before me didn't love her as much I love her.
