What type of PWC lift?

Just acquired a couple of used PWC's and my existing dock won't handle them without major and expensive additions. I am thinking about a couple of alternatives.

1) building a roller system similar to the "roll-n-go", only a little longer.
2) floating drive-on system similar to the EZ-Port, SportPort, etc. (this will be more expense since I will have to extend my deck out a little over the water)

Anyone else out there have a system that they like for their PWC's? I have decided against the most popular system of an attached motor or hand-driven cradle lift or davit system.

Dont know what you have for a dock there we had just a slope on the side of the dock with carpet on it and run them up on it.

Also have just put arms out off the dock . Have them so they lift up out of the way. Put a big3/4" gate springs on them and tie to the bow and stern of them. We also use the big gate springs for the big boats in the water at the dock for the waves when there not on a lift. Beat the rubber ones.

I have seen those drive-on systems and they start to look pretty ratty after a year or two. I have wheel-driven lift and find it to be the best alternative although if you dont have access to a launch ramp it is easy to trailer the pwc with a davit system.
