Where to store/dock/ride a jet ski?

Title says it all, just moved downtown and I have no clue where to start.

Do you have one yet?

Cullen Park used to be where I launched ~10 years ago. Close to downtown.

Not sure where you would store it.

There are some places in Point Place that look like they might have space to store jet skis.

Can't think of the business names off hand, but they'd be on Edgewater Dr out along where the marinas & boat clubs are.

Under the I-75 bridge close to downtown. The best riding is upriver and out near the lake.

There may be storage at International park

That's gonna be an issue. Nobody wet slips a jet ski. So you are talking about a parking spot for the trailer and a way to launch.
Brenner Pier 75 (Not the Skyway Marina, but the Pier 75 location near Kuhlman) will rack launch a jet ski and store the trailer:
trailer $25
Jet Ski $175

Summer Season:
trailer $95
Jet Ski $575

Annual (all year round)
trailer $110
Jet Ski $750

Or, find a friend with an empty garage bay (preferably near Cullen or Walbridge) and pay them $25 a month, and launch it at Cullen or Walbridge.

Another idea: there is a storage unit/yard place almost across from Mary Jane Thurston. Store it there, get a code, and drop it in at Mary Jane Thurston and do that part of the river. Much better recreational stretch.

It's called Sunset Storage. It's just barely past Mary Jane Thurston on Rt 65 going south along the river from Perrysburg. Short drive, keep the jet ski there month to month, use the facilities at Mary Jane Thurston, and explore the much more ski-able river all the way to Defiance. There are even places to stop on the river. And best of all, no poo discharges every so often like in Toledo.

From Mary Jane Thurston ramp, there is a huge stretch of river for miles to the south and west.

Speaking of poo discharges strongly recommend good soapy showers after riding close to Swan Creek, Ottawa River, mouth of the Maumee Bay or from Turtle Island to Cedar Point peninsula (next to Maumee Bay State Park) Ignore statements made by Toledo Health Dept. or City Environmental Services. They lie regarding the quality of those stretches of water. Take a dip and you will feel what I mean. There is good reason pwc's dont have running lights. Be sure to get off the water 1/2 hr. before sundown
Like aircraft-8hrs between the bottle and the throttle.
