Jet Dock Universal Boat Dock/BoatLift
High-density, 20-inch polyethylene cubes, each with more than 200 pounds of buoyancy, are the key to the Jet Dock’s success. Connected together, they form a drive-on platform with no moving parts. It doesn’t require power. A recessed central portion, corresponding to the shape of the hull, guides the boat into position as it is driven onto the dock. A pipelike bunk system offers stability and support, forming a cradle much like the bunks of a trailer. To launch, lower the drive, start the engine, and back off the platform under power. You’ve heard that platforms can be hard to get off? Jet Dock addresses the issue with a pivoting pedestal winch for hoisting and launching.
Jet Docks allow for both professional and consumer assembly. The dock ships in three primary pieces. A variety of mooring systems anchor the Jet Dock to a bulkhead, seawall or fixed dock; a Tide Manager system compensates for changing water height.
The traditional lift works best for outboard, sterndrive and jet-drive craft to 25 feet and 5,000 pounds. An air-assist option adds air chambers under the stern section to lift boats up to 50 feet and 40,000 pounds, or inboard craft to 25 feet and 10,000 pounds.

Dr. Dockwise says: Inboards can’t be powered off and must be launched completely before starting.
