When you find out ? Tell the rest of us? Sounds like a 64 Dollar Question!

Here's how you do it: take the ski off the trailer, on dry ground, place it on a large diameter (maybe 2" or 3") wooden rod at the mid point of the PWC. Slide it forward or backwards to find the point where it balances naturally.

This would work! But then you have to figure the weight of the driver and how far their sitting to the bow or stern for it to matter in real life?

I asked the question because I ordered a sling/hook harness to hoist it off trailer.


If link doesn't work, google this: B007O2V7N6


The reason for question is so I'd know where to place the hooks.

Definitely sounds like it could work, hopefully this is what helps the OP out.

Keep us posted OP

I bought the Harbor Freight hoist item 996 ($40 using 20% off coupon) to lift the Spark. Will use that with the sling I ordered. Will post balance info when able.
I'm also going to build a wheeled dolly so I can roll the Spark around. Have a couple old wooden pallets to use for materials.

I got the same sling a couple months ago. It works pretty good (much cheaper than Sea Doo's). I watched the guys at the dealer move one and just adjusted it a bit forward/back until level. Only thing is the "hooks' on the inside of the sling (under rails) aren't quite perfect, but does work.
