Default Anyone use Jet Dock?

I am moving to a new house and permits for a boatlift are a nightmare. I always see the Jet Dock display at the boatshow and they seem cool. I like the fact you can keep the boat out of the water and walk around it. Anyone use one? Are they worth the $$?

I was looking at them. I think I may go with a regular lift. They are HUGE money but from what I have heard they work very well.

Also check out www.jetfloat.com They make a very similiar product but it comes in a light color. I think it is a little less money also. From what I hear that black can burn your feet. I imagine down in FLA it would be a real killer.

I have had one for years, (6 or 7) They work great but they can scratch your boat if dirty. I like the fact that they can be re configured as much as you like and you never loose your investment. I have been buying "jetfloat" from canada. less money but less options. I mixed mine with my black "jet dock".

Ray:
So the Jet Float and jet dock boxes are interchangable? How hard is it to get the boat off the thing?

Yes jet doc and jet float go together. The boat is a 13' whaler not real heavy my two girls (15 and 13) have no problem launching it. They just lift up and give it a shove. They hold on to a line the pull it back to the side of the dock. For bigger boats jet dock rigs up a winch that pulls back on the boat eye and for very large boats (performance) they use a air chamber under them to lower them in the water then you use your out drive.

I just took these shots this weekend, good timing. I may be upping to a 16' whaler too. I also want to try my eliminator on it. I think i will need 2 more rows of cubes though.
