Default floating docks

anyone have any experience with the drive on floating docks for performance boats (32-40 ft)
The area I am looking at does not allow for a lift type dock, and I'm limited to the two exitsing pilings to attach to.

JetDock is the only way to go. Highest quality you will find and they are well thought out. They cost more than others but are worth it. Saw a few big boats on them and was very impressed to say the least.

How easy/difficult is it to get the boat on (dock) and off (launch the boat) the jet dock ?

Honestly, A lot quicker the launching the boat from the trailer.

Call 1800jetdock and ask to speak with Kenny, Tell him PK told you to call. This was actually the first jet dock and our boat was originally used to build the prototype drive on jet dock. It has held up very good over the years, still looks and works great. You may have seen it in Powerboat magazine JetDock advertisement. They are now building jetdocks for the goverment, so if you want

My buddy had a 46 BT on a jet dock it worked good but you need like 8 feet of water becuse they are thick and go down deep. Also they have to float the whole time if the tide go's down and your boat is on it it will break.

Actually it is easier with the tide, Jetdock will install it to the customer needs to ensure it works flawless.
