    I used Ebay and bought a sling rated at 1500 lbs for my 4 stroke.

    It works great and I was happy to go overboard with the weight rating.

    I use it like it's only meant to be used as well - temporary for moving on and off trailer or onto a cart. Never left on sling for anything beyond a minute or two at the outside.

    Obviously it depends on what machine you're lifting. This is a 1000 lb sling and I wouldn't trust a 4tec on it.

    Why, I have used this sling with my Doo's many many times for the last 10 years?

    I'm sure the manufacturer builds in some safety margin and I'm not trying to diss you in any way. The OP was asking what one to buy, and why wouldn't you buy a sling
    that was rated to lift your seadoo by a comfortable margin....it's worked for you and I'm happy for you but any 4tec loaded with fuel and gear is pretty close to 1000lbs.

    I simply prefer not to drive across a bridge rated for 1000 lbs in a 1000lb car....

    I have the Overtons and one from Aquacart. Much prefer the Aquacart for 4tecs.
