At our lake we can only have front mount lifts. I have a hydrohoist 6600 (6600 # lift). Based off the weight of my X-30 it's a little overkill, but I wanted to make sure it easily handled the boat as out dock sees some rough water and it does. Very happy with the quality of the lift.
Instead of a canopy I had a cover made that covers the whole boat including the tower and swim platform. Works awesome because I have plenty of space to hang stuff to dry under the cover and gives some air space to help with condensation.
