So, I got sick and tired of using a stick or screwdriver to keep the boat stall garage door open enough to get the boat in or out, but didn't want a typical garage door opener to bang my head into when I'm in the boat. So I found a I-drive.

This thing is so quiet and smooth I couldn't believe it. I highly recommend it to anbody who needs a garage door opener!

I wanted to look at the site that you posted a link for but it may be a bad link.

My opener is noisy and I wouldn’t mind looking at something quieter..

I like that alot.
what's it's price compared to a genie screw drive? double? triple? looks like you cannot install it yourself, am I right?

The price was about $250.00. You can install it yourself, the silver wheels bolt on around the shaft then there are two gear wheels on the drive (one one each side) that turn the silver wheels (shaft).
