    I have an 11ft Nautica tender with a 40hp 4 stroke engine. I would
    like to be able to drive it up onto some type of floating dock to
    keep the bottom clean, so that I do not have to pull it completely
    out of the water each month. The boat is docked at a slip in a
    marina. I have tried the EZ Dock system and that does not work
    with this particular boat. Does anyone know about anything else
    out there that would work?

    HydroPort II

    I have a HydroPort II next to my slip and drive my 12' Rendova RIB with a 40hp Honda onto it. It works great. RIB is entirely out of the water and I can launch and recover alone.

    Saw the online at Costco about a year ago. Had to call for information when I installed it, but the factory reps were great.

    Put a Jet Dock together several years ago for a bunch od PWC & ribs. Good stuff. Very easy to install and customize. What problem did you have with the E-Z Dock system?

    The jetdocks work well for a small boat and you can put a ring on the jet dock at the boats midship and run the line through the ring and foward to the eye on boat and winch it off. They're not so wonderful for waverunners as the jet pump is so close to the saltwater that it does a number on the wear rings in the jet pump if you have any wake action with saltwater corrosion.
