boat lifts?

Now that we have a place on the lake, and after pulling it out this fall, I have quite a bit of "lake build-up" on the hull from sitting in the water. Wondering if I could do a boat lift of some type.

Probably need an inexpensive one (most is in the house now), but it would be nice!

Currently, we have a single stall slip and I would put it in there if possible.

Handwheel is OK, but would be nice to upgrade to an electric or hydraulic one. Just don't know much about them, size/capacity needed, etc.

Any tips?

I really wish the PO made a double slip but a new one was quoted at $35k....so won't be expanding anytime soon.

Thanks!

Beautiful home. My compliments!

How deep is that water? Some lifts float while others brace against the bottom.

Bring up the 205's guys....always welcome to stay! Be nice to have 3-205's up there.

My wife is there now...just loving it! Relaxing with sister-in-law for a few days.

Huge wind storm a few weeks ago so she was also checking on it. Power out for 5-6 days, 20 degree weather. Huge trees dropped everywhere. Our house OK, but some relatives around the corner weren't so lucky. Have 3 houses with huge trees drop on their houses.

It's fairly shallow in this area. Probably suitable to use the lake bottom as a support.

Agreed, nice problem to have!

You've got your boat weight somewhere in literature, right? I use a 4000# capacity Shore Station for my 197 so I'd figure that does it for you as well. First thing would be to measure the width available in that slip and take it along to local dealers so you can be sure what you buy will fit.

Shore Station are nice but on the higher price end of conventional designs - take a look at them and get a number so you have a comparison basis. I assume there's a local dealer as they're one of the bigger OEMs. There are some OEMs that are more regional so you might be best off comparing what's available close by to have service available and low delivery and setup costs. On most you should be able to price the power as an option or to add later.

I would use low profile hydroHoist. I would get a 6600lb in case you do need a larger lift down the road.

Check out your regional winter boat show. You can research all the possible lifts and manufacturers. Great way to do searching since it's not a priority right now.

Also can try CL.
