I have been looking to get a jet ski for a couple years now, but those plans were put on hold since we ended up buying a place on the lake. Now that I am on the lake, I am looking to get a ski next spring. I will need some type of port, drive on dock, etc.

Prices seem to range from $1200-ish to over $3,000. Can anyone with experience offer some suggestions?

Assume jet ski is the size, weight of a Yamaha FX HO cruiser.

Do some research here, on greenhulk.net and pwctoday.com. I've read where some of the drive-on docks can be hard on the NanoXcel hulls.

They are all similar. You can build one with a float. I did that for a 12' rib. Hinge on the dock and float on the rear. Only cost a few hundred.
