    Sportport pwc floating dock

    Hey all,

    I'm in the market for a floating dock and was curious to see what you guys think about this model. Most of the docks I see have rollers. What about putting carpet down to prevent scratching the hull? Thanks.

    Stay away from rollers and I would think bunk carpet would work great

    The rollers seem to be very popular but I've noticed one or two people comment about hull damage due to the rollers.

    I have loved my sport ports for years..
    For the new Yami I did put carpet down to keep the marks down and spray "liquid rollers" to make it come off easier.
    The Only bad thing about these is putting ski in - Sometimes a little tough-Specially for the gravity challenged -like myself (125-130lb) Sometimes hard to get the 6-7-800lb ski sliding.
    Some friends use the black builder block style ,and the heavy ski's slide right off-But if you down pull it up all the way, the ride plate and pump area touch water too much..
    P.S. Rollers are great when you weekend use-Not to store the ski on during the week or worse -all season.. Very handy the first year-After that they dimple the bottom-or worse break and gouge the bottom-seen both.

    Also the new sea doo hulls are a deep V shape. Not sure what kind of floating dock would be best for that hull other than a lift.
