    PWC Shore Ramp Build

    I bought a couple 2010 STX 15f's a month or so ago and have been looking for a solution to dock them without braking the bank.

    I live on a lake and expect to put a dock in next year sometime but didn't want to leave the ski's in the water beached until then.

    Here is what I came up with. Not my plan, I just modified a roller boat ramp plan to fit my needs.

    I just built the one this morning and will build the second tomorrow morning. Super easy!

    I still need to add the winch and the bunk slides, but I should have right around $125 each into them.

    I plan on bringing it up another foot or two onto the shore and building a foot to give it a little more angle.

    Will post some additional pics as I finish them up. In the mean time feel free to ask any question you might have. Hoping this helps someone else.

    Nice build. I'd also add some sort of plastic/teflon strips to the wood to make it easier to slide and protect the hull. You can buy the strips from west marine, or just go buy a length or 2 of PVC gutter from Home Depot and screw it to the wood from the side. Good luck.

    Thanks, I was just test fiting the ski at this point. I will definetly be adding the bunk slides as mentioned. I like the gutter idea though.

    Here they are in there final spot. Slides still haven't shown up, so that's the last thing I have to do. They work great and do exactly what I need them to do which is primarily storage after riding on the weekends.

    Here are a few more pics.

    I just built one for about $210 all in, including roller bunks and winch. Total build time under 2 hours. I created my own set of plans and material list based on a the design shown in the original post above. I would be happy to share the drawings with you.
