GOING UP THE SYSTEM ( BOAT AND/OR PWC )
PWC: Approach the JetSlide at idle, keeping the craft straight and centred with the JetSlide. When the bow of the craft will be in contact with the JetSlide, give small throttle strokes that will make the craft align with the JetSlide. When the craft is in line with the JetSlide, throttle in slowly. After a few tries, you will rapidly develop a feel of how much throttle you have to use to reach final position on the JetSlide
BOAT: engine must be trimmed down fully during the entering procedures and the depth of water at the back of the system must be 3′ /1m minimum at all time to avoid damage to the boat. Increase throttle power until the boat is fully up on the system. When the engine gets in contact with the JetSlide, you will feel the craft stopping. You must immediately throttle down. This indicates that the craft is at final resting position. Entering the unit at high speed may damage the unit. We recommend, at first, that you try at slow speeds until you reach the correct speed. If the boat gets on the system but is not all the way in, you can continue throttling progressively until the boat reaches final resting position. Be careful, boarding at high speed can be dangerous.
NOTE: It is recommended to secure the craft to a cleat in order to prevent the craft from sliding back into the water accidentally. The craft can be locked to the JetSlide with a chain when you are not using it. Ask your dealer for details.
GOING DOWN THE SYSTEM
PWC: To go back into the water, take a standing position on your PWC and generate a backward movement by using your lower back and arms, pumping backwards rapidly until the PWC starts sliding back into the water. The procedure is easier when the PWC is wet. You can also stand up at the back of your PWC, grab the handle of the seat and transfer your weight back. The easiest way to return to water is to keep the front of the PWC in one hand and the handle of the other and then push gently. Be vigilant, because at some point, your PWC will start to go down by itself. At this point, you will have to get on it if you do not want your watercraft in the water without you.
BOAT: For a boat, put the engine in reverse and increase throttle until craft starts to go down by itself. It helps if you wet the system, especially if the boat was not used for a couple of days. It might be necessary to give a good throttle stroke to start the movement and then throttle down. For a Jet boat, the air assisted system will be required, no matter the weight of the boat.
1- Like all JetSlide installations, the system should not be installed in areas subject to waves of more than 0.75m / 2ft regularly. We recommend an installation in a protected area.
2-The installation of multiple PWC JetSlides side to side is possible, but a minimum of 2 rows of cubes is suggested between each JetSlide. An installation with only one row is possible, but there is a risk of damaging the machines and, therefore, the resulting damages will not be covered by the manufacturers warranty. Contact Candock for more information.
3-The handling of several JetSlides assembled in series by lifting (for winterizing by using a crane for example) is strictly forbidden. The excessive inflections will break the tabs of the JetSlide and the resulting damage will not be covered by the warranty. Contact Candock for more information.
4-The depth of water at the back of the system must be 1m / 3′ minimum at all time to avoid damage to the boats.
5-Riveted hulls can damage the JetSlide. ”Step hull” crafts are not suggested if used on a double JETSLIDE configuration.
6-Surface can be slippery when the system is wet.
7-The capacity of the JetSlide may change depending on the type of assembly, accessories and according to the weight distribution of the engines within the the watercraft.
8-Please note that some boats have cooling intakes for the engine which are located directly on the boats hull .These intakes need to be under the water line mark when the engine is running. CANDOCK MIAMI WILL NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSABILITY FOR ANY TYPE OF DAMAGE TO A BOAT RESULTING FROM THIS. IT IS THE RESPONSABILITY OF THE DISTRIBUTOR TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS IS VERIFIED BEFORE SELLING THE INSTALLATION TO THE CLIENT. We recommend that you inform your clients of that even if you are sure that the intake will be in the water.
9-The fact of removing cubes at the back of the system to lower the back of the system closer to the water could exert excessive pressure on the back tabs of the Jetslide and may cause damage which will not be covered by the warranty.
10-All distributors are held responsible for giving training to the customers on the complete use of the system, theoretical and practical with the watercraft of the customer. Candock Miami will not be held responsible for any damages resulting from the fact that the operator did not receive the adequate training.
11-The boats and personnal water crafts must be completely mounted on the Jetslide at all time. A craft left on the Jetslide in a position where the major part of the weight is left on the back, could exert excessive pressure on the back tabs of the Jetslide and may cause damage which will not be covered by the warranty.
12-The installation of multiple BOAT Jetslides side to side is possible, but no rows of cubes should be removed with the aim of saving space. Moreover the totality of the back Jetslide must be left free to be able to go up and down. Therefore, it must not be connected to the adjacent systems.
13-It is normal that a certain wear of the JetSlide appears at the points of contact where the boat exerts more pressure.
14-All Jetslides produced after the November 1st, 2009 are now filled with foam making them unsinkable.
15-We make a point of specifying that any damages caused by the keel of motors or the propellers will not be covered by our warranty.
16-All systems destined for boats of more than 3000lbs/1360kgs ( propeller or turbine powered) require the air assisted system NOTE: In certain cases, a winch can be necessary to push the boat back in the water. This may void the neccessity of the air assisted system. Any damage resulting from non-utilization of this winch will not be covered by the warranty. (see specific instructions)
17-Stiffening beams may be required for your configuration, any damages resulting from non-utilization will not be covered by the warranty. (see specific instructions)*Only the bams provided by Candock inc. are approved.
18-With the numerous varieties of boats on the market, it is possible that certain types will not be compatible with our system. Candock Inc. cannot be held responsible for this fact. It is impossible for us to be able to test all the existing types of boats in the world
