Q:Can this lift be installed on a floating dock?Asked on 5/13/2014 by Hank from Huntsville, AL
A:Yes, mine is installed on a floating swim dock. Floating is ideal because the height above the water line stays the same.
Tip: Do NOT lubricate the carpet bunks (with silicone spray etc.) as this will cause the PWC to slide too easily and not allow the support to slide.Answered on 5/18/2014 by Tom B from Lake Wylie, NC
A:According to the manufacturer: The Jet Rail XL can be mounted to a floating dock provided the dock has the structure, capacity and stability to support the loading and offloading of the PWC. You should contact the dock manufacturer or builder regarding the mounting of the Jet Rail XL to your dock.Answered on 5/16/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Can the winch handle be installed on either side?Asked on 5/7/2014 by Raymond from New orleans, La
A:I switched the winch so the handle is on the left side. Unbolt the U-channel that the winch is mounted on and switch sides. Works fine.Answered on 5/18/2014 by Tom B from Lake Wylie
A:No...handle can only be installed on one side.Answered on 5/12/2014 by Anonymous
Q:I'm looking at this product for a 14 foot aluminum boat, and I'm wondering if its up to the task. The boat is only 300 lbs and it has a 25 hp outboard that weights less than 150. Will the lift handle a long craft and will the weight of the motor at the far end cause problems?
Thanks, DaveAsked on 4/4/2014 by Dave
A:From the manufacturer:
The Jet Rail XL was not designed or tested for use with craft types other than PWC’s in the weight range listed for the unit.
In addition, the combined weight of the boat and engine may not have enough pull weight for the winch to operate correctly.Answered on 4/18/2014 by Anonymous
Q:What is the maxium footage from the top of the dock to the water that this lift will travelAsked on 8/3/2009 by david from barataria,la

Q:How exactly does this lift operate? And how is it attached to the dock? Thanks.Asked on 5/7/2009 by Anonymous
A:The PWC sits on a cradle similar to bunks on a trailer. The cradle rides on rollers that are mounted to a frame which is mounted to your dock. The cradle pivots as the PWC is raised or lowered using the hand winch. The Jet Rail can be mounted to your dock using thru bolts.Answered on 5/12/2009 by merchandiser from Overtons
