Q:I apologize if I missed this information but how does your product secure to the ground? The pictures provided show the PWC secured at a slope and I couldn't tell what keeps it in that position. Also I have a 2012 Yamaha FX SHO 3 seater and I read some reviews about the ramp scratching the watercraft. Is that a common problem or has anything been done to resolve that issue?Asked on 3/2/2015 by Ryan Lee
A:From the manufacturer: The weight of the watercraft holds the ramp in place. The cross members that lie on the ground won't slide even on a 30% incline.
Since receiving reports of scratching on one Yamaha hull design, we have changed the wheel design to a softer wheel. In addition, we reiterate from our setup instructions to use the narrower rail separation if contact with the cross members is evident upon the initial run up test.Answered on 3/31/2015 by Anonymous
Q:We live on a lake were the water fluctuates. Is this ramp sturdy enough to hold the ski on an incline? The picture looks like it's in very shallow water with little incline on the ramp.
Does it hold well when the currents are strong?Asked on 7/9/2009 by Anonymous from TX
A:You may want to consider a longer ramp if the water fluctuates often and a longer winch strap to reach the pwc with the longer ramp. The ramp can accommodate some fluctuations in water level, but not very much. You would not want the water to come close to the top of the ramp because your pwc will become under stress from the rising water and the winch strap trying to keep it attached to the ramp. We have ramp rollers and support brackets that you can use to make a wooden ramp as long as you need it to be (you get the lumber locally). That item is called the shore docker item 72493 for 1200 pound capacity or 72492 for a 2000 pound capacity.Answered on 2/8/2010 by Justin from Overton's
