DIY Wood Ramp Kit
DIY Wood Ramp Kit
The Shore Ramp DIY Wood Kit supplies all parts and fasteners you need to build a roller ramp for your PWC using lumber supplied by you. The finished ramp has the same functionality as our all-aluminum PWC-50 model at about half the total cost.
Works with almost all PWCs. Large, low-friction rollers make it easy to winch your watercraft up and completely out of the water. When your watercraft is stored on land, you can put the cover on and off and access it for fueling, cleaning, or other maintenance without getting wet. When it is time to go boating again, your watercraft can be launched in seconds, getting you on the water without delay.
15' long - handles larger 3-person watercraft with room to spare.
The Shore Ramp DIY Wood Kit is easy to position on your shore. For those in more northerly locations where lake equipment must be removed for the winter, the Shore Ramp can be conveniently pulled out.
Compared to a traditional boat lift, the Shore Ramp is quicker and easier to use and does not require adding to your dock.
The DIY Wood Kit is designed to have a sturdy frame constructed of 2x6, 4x4, and 2x4 pressure treated lumber. The brackets and bolts are all hot-dipped galvanized steel, the axles are solid aluminum, and the winch is galvanized, so your ramp will remain corrosion free for many years. All the structural connections are bolted completely through the wood with washers and backing plates. Much more durable and robust than using wood screws which can pull loose as the wood ages.
