Waverunner Dock

I needed a Dock...

Ok, I had two Yamaha Waverunners and no place to put them. What to do... So I sat down and decided that I would build a dock to hold them. What should I build? I sat down with pencil and paper in hand came up with this. As it progressed it came along rather nicely. I believe it should work for me rather well.

Original Concept Drawings

This was my original concept drawing for the dock. It changed as I went along but all for the better.

My original angle was a bit too steep so I lowered the cross piece down a bit. I also did not decided to use the re-rod to hold down the dock into the water. Instead I created a "V" cinder block holder.

This was my first revision. I changed the spacing a bit and then added some real dock hardware from Bartswatersports. I then hit Ace Hardware for the Galvanized carriage bolts.

Instead of using simple support pieces across the middle, I decided to make them steps. The Waverunners are far enough apart that you can walk between them. (At the locations labeled 4 each.)

Here you can also so see the "V" that I used to hold the bottom end down into the water.

This is where I figured out that I could put support pieces across the long 2 x 10's and still have enough clearance for the Waverunners to ride on top. This added a lot of strength to the final product.

Lock Mechanism

Here is what I came up with for a locking mechanism. I purchased the locks from Robert Sands at  JetSkiMechanic.com. I glued the Eye bolt into the 4x4 to help prevent it from being unscrewed.

I put the stairs going up the middle, only because I could. I'm not sure if they will prove useful or not but we will see.

I'm not sure if I will add another stair or not....
