When we bring them we just pull them up on the swim platform. A towel on the platform protects the bottom.

good idea, but what about the boat, do we connect the boat to a rop connected tot he swim platform, if we do we will have to be extreamly careful when braking

Well, yeah you can tow the ski boat. Put it on a long leash, maybe 40 feet. Houseboats don't stop very fast so you shouldn't have any problem catching the ski boat before it catches up to the houseboat. When we houseboat (on Lake Shasta) We usually drive the houseboat to a good spot and camp it. The ski boat becomes a taxi and rarely gets tied up when the houseboat is underway. But we use the way I described above when we do. Have fun!
