  • Custom Jetski Stands

    I'm building these jetski stands. 2" (1/8 wall) angle & square tubing, pneumatic casters which are ideal for travel over uneven surfaces & swivel hinged bunks which will conform to any hull design.

        Looks good

        I like it, nice, clean, and painted. I know nothing about watercraft but I'm sure they are more than stout enough to handle the load. Just curious, is that your own design or did you improve on something already available?

          Those are some good looking welds. What kind of machine do you use?

              Earlier models, 1996-2000 can weigh anywhere in the range of 400-600lbs. The newer models weigh upward of 850lbs.

              I belong to a jetski forum & quite a few members have purchased my stands and they're placing all model jetskis on it with no problems. The pneumatic casters have been very popular, gone are the days of pushing our skis & getting nowhere, these casters make it almost 4WD

              Yes, it's my design, I got sick of the standard design that doesn't allow any comfort when working on the hull or you cannot push the jetski with casters similar to that of my sons Thomas the Train toys.

                When fabricating my stands having short off-cut pieces that end up being too short for the next stand is inevitable.

                So what to do with short off-cut pieces?

                After speaking with my local jetski dealer who purchased a couple of my other stands we threw around some ideas & my other design was born.

                These are a couple stands I'll be delivering sometime this week.

                Height = 14"
                Width (caster to caster) = 24"
                Bunk to Bunk = Varies from 18"- 20"
                Length = 48"

                Fabricated with my signature pneumatic casters.

                    The stands look good. Do they come in different colors?

                            I sell them for $199.00

                            I'm a member on greenhulk.net ( http://greenhulk.net/forums/member.php?u=16422 ) a jetski forum & had a few members from MD., FL., IL., want them.

                            Shipping costs were insane until a friend of mine mentioned Greyhound Shipping. Their shipping cost is generally $80.00. It surely opened the door to move my stands outside the New England area.

                              In the triangle area under the support frame how did you weld that together?
