I just moved mine from one slip to another. Luckily mine is a Sunstream Float Lift - just untie and put the hydraulic motor and battery box on the swim step and start rowing. We rowed it about 100 yards with the boat still on the lift. It looked pretty funny to people on shore. It was the world's most expensive canoe. Sorry, no pics.

Each to their own...some of us would consider that unfortunate...;) . Any climate where a boat can stay in all winter means that the snowmobiling is likely to be pretty bad...:)

You'd consider it unfourtante to have to leave your boat in year round :confused:
I consider it, to be a frigg'n luxury.

Yes, unfortunate...I like the winter. But...some don't.....each to their own.

Nice that this country has a variety of climates that we can pick and choose from, eh?

How's the snowmobiling there?;) and...I don't think there are any slopes there tall enough for snow skiing....

Nope, but there is no snow to shovel, no blizzards, no accidents due to icey roads either.

Seriously, if year 'round boating was an ambition of mine, I'd just move there, but from my point of view, moving to southern warmth would mean giving up too many of the things I like to do - too many compromises for Florida to be attractive to me. When I put my snowmobiles away in the spring, I'm as sad as I am when I winterize the boats. I'm glad you guys like where you live. So do I - it's why I moved here.

I have a 'new' (first time MC owner Aug this year) 03 X10/Maristar 210 and am looking for a good vertical lift for shallow water, plus canopy; yours looks good; what type is it? Do you like it? How's the canopy with the tower?
Thanks.

Not my lift. My neighbors lift. He's a construction guy so he has buddies with equipment. It's amazing what two cases of beer will buy.

As far as the lift for our boats I have yet to buy one because I am still on the wating list for a slip in the little marina you see in the photo's. The lift I want has a huge heavy canopy that allows the tower to remain up and still covers the boat down to the water line. It is however $12k plus installation. So... what I will end up with is a belly only hydraulic for around 6k and I'll have to cover it. I forget the brands but I will probably buy it from these guys www.actionwater.com you can see them on thier website, I think.
