As the summer season peaks, taking your watercraft to brave the winds and exploring the water doesn’t seem like a bad idea. But like a boat, jet skis require safeguards to protect them from the elements when not in use.
Luckily, you can keep your jet ski in its best shape by getting a jet ski lift. If you have yet to own one, here are the reasons you should get a dedicated lift for your jet ski you may want to consider.
While their purpose is to cruise freely in water, leaving your personal watercraft in a body of water for too long makes it prone to stain and damage. The paint and protective coating on your jet ski may begin to deteriorate the longer you allow it to sit in water.
Fortunately, a manual jet ski lift can serve as a protective measure that keeps PWC safe and properly stored during the cooler seasons.
A PWC sitting on a slip has a greater chance of sinking into the water over time. Sinking may be due to minor cracks in jet skis that allow water to come through and add weight to the craft. With a dedicated jet ski lift, watercraft can remain dry and avoid repairs.
Most jet ski lifts prop personal watercraft out of water; this helpful feature allows you to access jet skis and clean them easily. Storing your jet ski on a lift can also make maintenance and waxing easier as well.
Branches and debris can float along the water and make their way dockside, especially after heavy rain. This places your jet ski in harm’s way to sustain damage. Luckily, a lift will prop your PWC away from logs, leaves, and grime.
Your jet ski is similar to your boat because it requires the occasional TLC. While getting a dedicated lift for your jet ski is easier said than done, it provides you with peace of mind knowing your watercraft is safe when faced with disaster.
