HOW TO INSTALL A PWC DOCKING PLATFORM

HOW TO INSTALL A PWC DOCKING PLATFORM

Written by HydroHoist Marketing

Do you think lifts and platforms are only for boats? Think, again. If you own a personal watercraft (PWC) like a jet ski, a lift or docking station might be just what you need to enhance its enjoyment. It adds three important benefits to PWC ownership – protection, security, and convenience. Here’s how:

  • Protection: When your jet ski is in dry dock, its hull and paint job are safe from corrosion, which adds to its current visual appeal and to its future resale value.
  • Security: When you access your PWC from one of our docking platforms, you get improved stability for you and your guests with our anti-skid walkways.
  • Convenience: When your PWC is easier to launch into the water and easier to remove, it means you can enjoy being on the water without trailering or bulky boat ramps.

Enjoy the beauty of the summer and the freedom you experience on the water with one of our docking stations. While installing one means you make accessing and enjoying your PWC much easier, we recommend letting our team handle the installation for you. Our professional, experienced, certified installers know what they’re doing. In fact, we believe that assembly, installation, or repairs of a HydroHoist PWC docking stations should only be performed by an authorized HydroHoist technician, as stated in our manuals.
