those seem like some nice tires for street and track use, that is road coarse, very nice, it says not to use them in cold conditions, i wonder how they will work on a wet slope.. lol..

They do pretty damn good in the wet. By cold they mean below freezing, these are summer tires not meant for snow, the tires will harden up, which shouldn't be an issue since I doubt you'll be using the jetski in that weather.

It will do fine. Quit stressing about it. Front wheel drive is where people screw up on boat ramps. All of the weight from the load is transferred to the rear wheels when you are on a ramp. You will have more traction than on level ground due to the weight transfer to the rear. Your rear wheel drive Miata will be a win.

As long as he's not loading on wet grass; concrete, pavement dry or wet no problem.

I don't spin tires, even in the wet, on 15k mile old R888's.... At least without a serious leg full of throttle.
