Whats the word on these, anything Spark specific available yet? Aftermarket or OEM doesn't really matter.

1000 lbs should be more than enough. Thinking about a sling for the boathouse, might even be able to store it like so over the winter and save a few on winter storage fees...

im thinking about putting a chain hoist in my garage and doing something like that. I have two sparks and don't always take them both out on the water. I am not fond at leaving it on the trailer when I go to the river.

Im thinking about using the following.

Chain Hoist - Low Sale Prices on this 1 Ton Chain Hoist Connecting it into my attic space and placing a 4x4 across two trusses.

And for lifting the ski 1 Ton Web Sling

Maybe two of those connected to the chain hoist. Just not sure if they would move or not.

Plan would be to lift ski off trailer, pull trailer out, Lower ski to 1 to 2 inches from garage floor.

Hi Dmshirkey , I,m in the same spot with taking two along to the river and using only one. I would not let the ski hang in the sling to long it may not be the best for it . I found these plans to make a cheap but strong stand from 2by 4s for about $25. I made one and it works well. Also my dealer told me that I could use a lifting sling that I had for my waverunners. He said that would work but I'm not sure? Can anybody verify that?

I dont see why not, its weight rating if more than appropriate. However I do believe there are differences to each one. Have you given it a shot at least as a test?

Those are SWEET !!!!!!! I plan on making a couple. I can move the ski's around the garage. Then when winter comes I can move them over to where the snowmobiles are stored and bring the snowmobile out to where they are.

I was just concerned because the sling that I have for waverunners hooks under the lip on each side and I was not sure about the lip on the spark. I have lifted on side up by hand so whats the difference between me or the sling. I guess I'm probably over thinking it. I'll give it a try and see.

its not so much that the sling could or would damage the ski, but more like the ski is going to damage the sling. I suppose the biggest risk of prolonged storage over say the winter is the potential for the sling to unravel itself. I've heard of this happening as they age, but the prolonged load my accelerate the process...?
