Towers and Docks

ok, so i'm looking at lake homes and sizing up the covered docks and wondering what you guys do to fit that boat with the tower in there? How high does the boat need to be out of the water on the lift? Some docks might fit if i just lift it about a foot out of the water.

If i tried to fold down the tower each time it would be a hassle and then i couldnt put my cover on. Would a cockpit cover work in that case?

Also, anyone know how tall an 08 X2 is from bottom to top of tower?
thanks
Kurt

also send any pictures of your boat with tower in a covered dock and how you do it..

I have a lift with a canopy. You have to have the canopy raised highter than normal and have the canvas extend down lower than normal. I am able to lift my 08 x-14 completely out of the water without folding the tower. The extended sides look similar to this:

Hey All5 - Do you have the make/model of that lift/canopy setup that you've got there? I'm looking to get a similar setup for my x-14 for next year.

Sorry for the slight threadjack...

Hey All 5,

That picture brings back a lot of memories... I remember being a very young boy sailing on Wawasee with my uncles in that sail boat you have in the picture... Scow? is that correct? Is it a E Scow? I think my uncles had A's (20 feet or so) its been a long time so if I mistaken please forgive me...

Don't know about the sailboat. I was using that picture as an example. I have the same setup but that is not my pic. It is actually the pic my dealer sent me as an example when I was buying the lift.

My dock is 11 feet from the concrete deck to the upper crossmember. My water level is usually 30" below my concrete deck, so, 13'6" from the water. I am able to lift the boat till the tower just almost touches, and I have 4 feet clearance under my boat. Any taller, and the cables would bind up on top of each other, so it works out great.
