Lifting Eyes And Slings

An overhead hoist with two-ton capacity (minimum) should be used to lift your boat. Cables should be rated for at least 3,500 pounds each. When lifting, keep the bow slightly higher than the stern to prevent any possibility of water running into the engine exhaust manifold.

Lifting Slings:

An overhead hoist with a two-ton capacity (minimum) should be used. Slings must be 6 inches wide by 20 feet long and a minimum of 3,500 pounds capacity each. Use an eight foot spreader bar on each sling to prevent damaging side pressure to the deck or gunwale molding. Lifting slings must never contact shafts, struts or hardware protruding from the hull.
