Thanks Kevin, I feel the same and have had the boat slip moored in fresh water since July 1, and plan on keeping it so through late September before pulling for winter garage storage. The bilge is checked regularly, and the boat is covered 90% of the time. Carbon seals are good. The slip is in the lee and reasonably well protected. We only get 3-4 months for boating season here, so a slip maximizes our time underway.
I understand not doing this with a PWC. It's the concerns about finding your boat sunk at the dock that struck me as a bit alarmist. Here's hoping not to jinx myself.
How expensive is a jet dock or lift? Can they be installed in a floating dock slip in say 10' of water?
Edit: whoa, $2k+ for a new PWC jet dock, and more than twice that for a new jet dock for a 20' boat.
