Jetski Drydock
« on: October 31, 2020, 06:58:06 pm »
Got a new dry dock floating pontoon system for the jetskis, makes life easier as they go up and down with the tide and you just drive the skis straight up on to it. Have to get one for the boat now as it will stop the hassle of fouling and scraping the boat every couple of months. The bush in the other side looks depressing 10 months since the fires.

Thanks Bruce, I'm a just a looker with these new ones mate. They are ridiculously powerful, I came off (being doubled) and took me a week to feel I could get out of bed or chair without being in agony.
The boys will go off from home and go out the entrance of the lake to sea and go 30 - 40 klms up and down the coast with them.

Those sure look nice  8)

At least they get their use out of them, most people around here only use them one week a year on vacation.

Smart solution Jim.  I bet they're designed to stack well for storage?

Thanks Nick.

Scott its pretty heavy, it could be taken apart for storage at its all modular cubes, they are pretty clever. Its like big Lego you can make them any design you want.
