Nice info on the floatlift reliability - thanks. If I could find a used floatlift at those prices, I'd jump at it. My local supplier has not given me a quote for a new one yet, and I think I'm about...

anyone have a floating boatlift?

We have an x-14V - 3900lbs dry.

The shoreline at the cottage does not really support the standard boatlifts, especially because we need it out of the water in the winter due to ice.

Interesting idea. My guess, and it is only a guess, is that you'd get a lot more benefit of a shaping device placed on the edge of the boat. If you picture the water flow behind a boat, I think...

Our boat is away for the winter already. I'm looking forward to skiing, though. This pic is from Bow Summit last year, but I heard they got a foot of snow already last week.

I'm glad I started this thread, and I should re-read it every year before boating season because it saved me today.

I think that's the key- the height of the platform relative to the lifting lugs. I moved mine from about 1.5" below to just below.... Or from flush with the water when at rest, to completely above...

That's a great solution, but I'd be disappointed if it was factory installed... Because it means they stopped putting these on later models as neither my '12 or '14 had them.
