Q:I have three sport ports for my PWCs and love them! Is there a winch or lockable tie down that can be added to them to secure the PWC's further?Asked on 8/29/2015 by kevin from delray beach, fl
A:There aren't any specifically designed for the Sport Ports. Depending on your specific installation/application, you may be able to add tie downs, or an aftermarket winch to a dock if your port is mounted to one.Answered on 8/31/2015 by Anonymous
Q:We get large waves by our docks. Are there features on this lift that prevent it from hitting the dock it is attached to?Asked on 8/5/2015 by The hawk from Lake Martin, AL.
A:Thanks for your question. The poles or pilings that the SportPort ride up and down on should prevent it from hitting the dock. When installed correctly there should be very little side to side or front to back movement. Typically the SportPort is installed a foot or so off the dock to allow some clearance but still close enough for you to easily access the dock and PWC.Answered on 8/5/2015 by Product Expert from Overtons
Q:Can this be secured to the dock either at the end or from the side? Also, is it recommended to remove from the water at the end of the boating season?Asked on 7/26/2015 by Nat from Lake Tahoe, CA
A:Thanks for your question. Yes, this can be installed at the end or on the side.
You do not have to remove the drive-on dock unless there is potential of freezing water. I am not in freezing conditions but I do remove mine in the off-season just because water conditions in my area can get rough and I do not want to leave it out there unattended for months at a time. Removing it also allows me to clean any marine growth off the bottom of the dock.Answered on 7/27/2015 by Product Expert from Overtons
Q:Your description says it's "unsinkable". One of the reviews says you drive the PWC off. How is that done when the PWC is out of the water?Asked on 7/4/2015 by Dick from Knoxville, TN
A:Thanks for your question. Yes, the docking system is foam-filled and unsinkable. Typically you drive on to the dock. To remove the PWC from the dock you can slide it back slightly so there is more weight on the back of the dock versus the front. Then get on the PWC and shift your weight to the back which causes the back of the dock to drop down slightly and the angle of the dock will allow the PWC to slide off the dock and into the water. Depending on the weight distribution and how far you pulled up onto the dock you may not even need to push the PWC back first. Just shifting your body weight back and forth will be enough to change the weight distribution and allow the PWC to slide off the back of the dock as long as you did not pull up too far.Answered on 7/6/2015 by Product Expert from Overtons
Q:Does it ride with the tide for launch and ride on during low tide? If so how low of a tide can it accommodate launching and drive on?Asked on 6/17/2015 by Steve from 1141 marina drive tarpon springs fl.
A:Thanks for your question. Yes this rides up and down with the tide. When mounted properly it will move all the way down with the tide. It will accommodate as low as tide possible and your concern will be enough water depth to operate the PWC versus the drive-on dock position.Answered on 6/17/2015 by Product Expert from Overtons
Q:I can't back off the dock. I have a 24 foot boat on a sport port drive on dock with additional floation at stern end. I can get on no problem but getting off big problem. It is a 5 piece port made for boats of my size.Asked on 4/9/2012 by Anonymous from Boynton Beach Florida
