Default Check out my JetDock playground setup!

Wanted to show off the Jet Dock system. Have had it installed since 97 and love it. Jetdock actually started their first drive on boat system with the boat and used this one for testing. (like a beta version or prototype) If you log onto the www.jetdock.com site there is a video with it driving on the dock.

This past summer.

Prototype testing for jetdock. Check that setup up. Back in the day with the old Seadoo jet boat, now sold.

They pretty much show the boats getting on the dock .......if your props or jet are out of the water, how do you get back off the dang thing?

Good point Nort. What if a strong wind comes along? Looks like the boat needs something to secure it from possibly leaning on a side

My bro in law is the Canadian distributor for Jet Dock. Its pretty slick. There are smaller( height) sections that go under the keel and plastic pipes on either side of the "groove" to stabilize the hull. Theres a winch and pulley system to back the boat off enough to get your props wet. then ya just back off. The seadoos he has just slide off with a push. They also have a submergible set up with an air pump for bigger boats. Only real problem is the black plastic will blister your feet in a hearbeat on a hot summer day.

The boat jet dock systems have a pump much like the Hydro systems. There are tanks under the dock that hold air when you leave over night or sink if you want to go boating. The prop is allways in the water and your engines get water no problems.

Once you pump up the dock raise the outdrive and you are good to go. Boat is 100% out of the water. Dave Faber of Jetdock owns a 42footer 3 engine performance boat, system works same way. His drives sit out of the water as well.
