Do lift companies warranty the boat if this happens?

I wonder how far forward it was loaded to slide out

doesn't look like a part failed, looks like operator error
I'd say the same.

Comedy aside the lift was over loaded...look at the front beam. An X-Star weighs just over 4,000 lbs dry (no fuel) add stock ballast (1000lbs) and a full fuel load (420 lbs) and any misc equipment and you can see where a 3000 or 4000 lbs lift like this one is a receipe for this to happen. Now if it had fat sacs or lead as additional ballast like most do...well I am suprised we dont see this more often.

Ouch. That looks like no everyday lift. Too far forward? Is that the consensus?

Yes, just like it was said previously, operator error.......;)

I saw a strap lift break with a bass boat on it. Wow was it loud. No damage though. He was very lucky.

Well, if it wasn't pickleforked in the front, safe to say that it is now. Hate to see it, but that's what insurance is for.

It was already pickle forked, if not it would have also rolled over! :eek: :rolleyes:

I would not be surprised if it only needed minor hull repairs.
I have a hull plug from the MC Factory tour and that thing is thick!

I guess it also depends if that is a rock shore or sand. Either way, it hurt to look at, it just hurts more because its such a nice boat.

I'd be interested to see some shots after they dropped the back end down alittle.

I would bet on it not being damaged all that much. Relatively speaking....

Not to hijack but while we are on this topic what ever happened to the frozen boat up north??

I think I see what the problem was.
can you fix that to clearly show the for sale sign?

That's custom gelcoat work, I could charge extra for that :uglyhamme

Really tough to tell if the X-Star coming off the lift was "PHOTOSHOPPED" or if Eric was "PHOTOSHOPPED" in

Very very tough to tell. Someone out there does EXCELLENT work.

This could be an URBAN ERIC LEDGEND

I don't think it was a chop job, look at the straps and cables

Maybe there was pickle floating in the water and the boat just wanted to take a stab at it!

That lift is clearly to small for the X-Star. My guess is that the owner will be responsible for the bill :(
My lift is coming next week or the week after. It will be rated for 9000lbs, I don't want to find my boat like that :D

Found this earlier this week on my lake. Looks like the one corner of the lift fell down a few feet. Can't explain why the cover looks like it was removed with a knife!

That is a scary story on the boat that ran 150 feet on shore.

Boat below may have taken on too much ran from the 2-3 inches per day we have been getting. On Morse Lake Indiana

It does look like it should have been hitting the top doesn't it!

Look how high the back of the cradle is.....it could have been done intentionally. Maybe, they ticked off a crazy SKIER! ;)

Looking at it again, there is no way the boat would fit in there with the tower up and the cradle that high. Either someone forgot to turn off the lift or they have an enemy.

RexDog1
06-28-2006, 01:21 PM
Hunnn the front I-beam bent and that what caused the boat to come forward, and off the lift
It looks like the tower would hit the wood at the top; I would think the tower would bend
Before the I-beam would give out, but it could be a combination of the two
Weight and tower hitting the top of the wood ??? :twocents:
But I am full of BS, :eek: it is just SAD :cry:

Lots of interesting observations.

It would be interesting to know how they managed to get the boat down. It appears the pickle fork bow is under the walkway across the fron of the dock. If the lowered the lift, as the stern was lowered the bow would rise and cause more damage to the boat and dock.

I do like that dock, other than a lift that looks too small for the boat, that is a first class dock.
