How do you plan to get out to the water? Does your Sea-Doo live in your garage or storage part of the year? A Sea-Doo MOVE trailer is the ultimate transportation for your Sea-Doo watercraft. We have seven models to choose from and one to fit every preference, style and price. When the occasion calls for easy handling, great performance and smart innovation, you can never go wrong with a Sea-Doo Move trailer.
Sea-Doo Move I, Sea-Doo Move II and Sea-Doo Move I Extended
Unload and load your PWC in no time thanks to the trailers’ roller bunk system and a custom frame design that requires less water. All three models come with leaf spring suspension and are available in galvanized and black painted.
New this year is the Sea-Doo Move I Extended made to suit BRP’s biggest PWC. It has all the same features mentioned above, but is 1′ 1” longer.
Sea-Doo Move I and Move II With iCatch
The Sea-Doo Move I and Move II With iCatch trailers are the most innovative products on the market. The automatic iCatch and release system using a quick-snap handle built into the handle support eases manipulation as well as the process of loading and unloading the watercraft. The premium torsion suspension system provides low ride height and better handling.
Sea-Doo Move With Walk Pad and Sea-Doo Move I With iCatch and Walk Pad
The innovative walk pad guidance system allows you to conveniently walk around to access your PWC. It also features an adjustable winch post with non-marking bow rollers. The premium torsion suspension system provides low ride height and better handling.

Sea-Doo time (or summer) is just around the corner and now is the time to prep for the season. We hope you have taken the time to read Dr. Doo’s post on Pre Season Fuel Care and the blog on Pre-Season prep for your Sea-Doo. Now it is time to get organized.
Remember last season when you got soaked and wanted to stop by your favorite restaurant for a bite to eat? Wouldn’t it have been nice to have a dry shirt or shoes to put on (since shirts and shoes are required by most eating establishments)? We recommend carrying a dry set of clothes in your Sea-Doo Dry Bag. These bags are watertight and made of puncture-resistant PVC coated polyester fiber materials. They have a reinforced bottom and are designed to keep everything dry.
Sea-Doo glove boxes are roomy and designed to keep multiple items safe during your ride. Many people keep their cell phones, keys, sunglasses, boater’s safety license, registration, etc., in it. Once you place all of these items in the glove box, they tend to shuffle around when you are shredding and carving. Our solution is a Sea-Doo Glove Box Organizer. The Glove Box organizer fits all models with S3 Hulls and iS models. It is a semi-rigid splash-resistant, portable case. The liner cushions the inside of the glove box and provides insulation. The case fits perfectly in the glove box and provides easy access when opening the glove box cover. Bonus! When you dock or are heading home, you can grab the case and easily take all of the items with you.
After jumping in the water to cool off or beaching at your favorite island destination, you will likely have a wet towel (or two), wet rope, snacks, etc. The Sea-Doo Front Storage Tray is the perfect solution to safely storing these items in one place while underway. This storage tray has a cargo handle and can store up to 3.2 gallons of ‘stuff’. Plus, it lifts out (and in) easily for transportation. The Front Storage Tray fits the 2012 and newer Sea-Doo RXP-X 260, GTI, GTS 2011 and newer and GTR 2012 and newer.
Check out all of these Sea-Doo organization boxes and bags online store or visit your local dealer and they can help you get prepared for an organized day on the water!

There is nothing more fun than spending a day or a weekend, out on the water with family and friends. Hours of laughter, splashing and quality family time. One of the most important safety items that a boater, or watercraft rider, can have on hand is the correct PFD. There are numerous types of PFDs and not all PFDs are recommended for every situation. The North America National Safe Boating Campaign “Wear It” campaign aims to educate boaters on the importance of wearing a PFD.
In 2009, the Coast Guard counted 4,730 accidents that involved 736 deaths, 3,358 injuries and approximately $36 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents. Of those who drowned, 84 percent were not wearing life jackets.
“The statistics show that no matter where you are boating, being properly prepared and equipped and wearing a life jacket can help save many lives,” Virgil Chambers, executive director of the National Safe Boating Council said. “We want to prove that life jackets not only save lives, but that today’s life jackets are comfortable, stylish and easy to wear,” Boaters need to be and should be properly informed and educated about boating safety and most importantly, remember to ‘Wear It!’”

The Sea-Doo Life Test Ride Tour STOPPED at Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania last weekend…test riders raved about the brakes, the suspension and maneuverability of our Sea-Doo watercraft. People who test rode the 210 SP Boat loved the roominess, the abundant storage, fuel economy and the ease of operation. The many test riders came back with a new perspective of the level of control now available on Sea-Doo watercraft including the iBR technology and the revolutionary braking system.

As we inch closer to our boat purchase, I am in full-blown preparation mode for my new Sea-Doo boat!
We have decided on the model that we wish to purchase…it is the Sea-Doo Challenger 230 SE. This is the top of the line Sea-Doo Challenger model that offers some additional perks such as a bow and cockpit cover, stainless steel cup holders, 4-speaker stereo system, ECO mode and more.
Our decision is also based on available space. My family is only 5 people, but three of those 5 people are over 6 foot tall. Add in a few teenage friends and the extra space in this boat will go to great use! The storage is also a huge plus for me. Most of our trips will be day trips on the river where we will head to Sebastian Inlet or up and down the Florida waterways, so I plan to pack food, clothes, etc., enough for all of us!
Now that we have the boat decision made, we have to figure out the other decisions, the first one is storage.
We have a few options to store our boat…at our house, an on-water slip in a local marina or in rack storage. I have already ruled out an on-water slip. This is a big investment for us and I do not want the salt water prevalent in all of our bodies of water in Florida to do any damage to the hull of the boat. I also am concerned that water-born creatures will attempt to call my new Sea-Doo home and I have heard horror stories of miniscule animals damaging boats stored in the water. That leaves us with storing the boat at home, on the side of the house and towing it each time we want to use it, or in a local dry-dock storage facility.
I called a few local storage facilities that use high and dry fork lifts to pull the boat out of the water and store in their multi-level storage facility. The beauty to this type of storage would be that we would just have to call ahead or show up at the dock and the boat would be waiting for us to load up and go. The closest facility is a family owned and operated full-service marina, so we wouldn’t have to worry about fueling or cleaning the boat afterwards. They are already set up to help us with everything we need to prepare for a day on the water and to get the boat ready for storage post boating. The quotes I received came in around $250 per month for a 23-foot boat. This price is much more affordable than I would have imagined. This is very high on my consideration list as I see it as the easiest way for me to get out on the water, quickly and with little advance preparation.
The other option is to store the boat at our house. We can store it on the side of the house, but we do not have a covered storage area appropriate for the boat. We live in a mature housing development and there is no possibility for adding space to the house or adding on a garage to store the boat. This option presents us with the least expensive option, but also a bit more work. We would tow the boat to our intended launch ramp, launch at the dock, clean it post boating near the ramp and then bring it back home. For this option we will need to ensure we have adequate experience towing a boat (I don’t, but my husband does) and will have to allow advance time for boat preparation to get out on the water. Less expensive yes….however, also more work.
The storage debate is still being waged in our household…I am advocating for the dry storage and my husband is advocating for the beside-the-house storage—I will let you know who wins this one!
Where do you store your boat? Are you a fan of one or the other options? If you were in my shoes, what would you do? Would love to hear your ideas. Also, please let me know if there are other storage solutions that I have not researched.
SHE DOO is actually Mrs. JA and she is indeed a full-time, working mom of three and is quickly being immersed into the boating life. She will be taking an everyday consumer approach to the entire boat buying process. SHE DOO will be a ongoing segment at OnBoard taking you with her along the journey as she progresses through the process of looking for the right boat, purchasing the right boat, learning the proper boating procedures and operations, real life experiences on the water with her family and everything else there is to know about making the most out of the boating experience and the Sea-Doo LIFE. Her immediate thoughts are how to entertain her 17, 15 and 10 year olds and friends as she sees them being on the water as a much better alternative than them being on the streets.
