Crane lift ?

Need help.

Can I use the lifting eyes on the back of the boat to lift my X-45 2007.

Is it strong enough?

Or how do you lift your boats?

I have never used a crane before but now the waterlevel is to low and I cannot get the boat on the trailer.

Thanks.

The technique is described in your owner's manual.

Iīm asking to be sure. Donīt want to make any mistakes. The ring in my picture works to lift the boat? The only thing I find in the manual is this, no pictures.

DO NOT use the ski pylon for lifting. It is NOT designed as a central lifting point. Also, DO NOT use the stern ski tow as a lifting ring. The deck will be damaged. See the Storage Cradle sub-section of the Lifting the Boat section of this Manual. Also never lift a boat with a large amount of water in the bilge or containing a water-filled device such as a Fat Sac or ballast system. The extra stress will put an excessive load on the hull and lifting equipment that may seriously damage the boat and void your warranty.

Using Lifting Eyes
An overhead hoist with two-ton capacity (minimum) should be used to lift your boat. Cables should be rated for at least 3500 pounds each. When lifting, keep the bow slightly higher than the stern to prevent any possibility of water running into the engine exhaust manifold.

Thanks

It does seem a little ridiculous that an X-45 can be lifted safely with just the use of the bow eye and the two stern lifting rings. It is perfectly safe as that is what they are designed to do.

You are most welcome. How about a few pics of the X-45? Don't think I have seen a pic of one in Sweden.

Great video and thanks for sharing. Couple things:

I see some swimsuit thread talent. So please share.

Did you take any video of the crane lift? That would be worth sharing.

How did you get the overhead shots??

I wanted to get that crane lift on film.. But.. The crane operator didnīt want to lift the X-45 so it ended up with a tractor backing down further into the lake to get the boat out.

It is just the gopro on a stick..
