I hate leaving mine in over night.

A used hoist is cheap insurance. I think I paid 1200 for mine. Then again, we have zebra mussels and although they are FANTASTIC for making the water clear and beautiful, they can kinda screw up things that sit at docks so I guess I have a bit more motivation....

Was that a run on?? Mondays...

Here she is

Here is a picture of my new boat, I was hoping to be able to get her in the water this weekend and move her to my slip but since the forecast has now changed to a slight chance of snow on Saturday I may be waiting a little longer than I had hoped.

This is a pic from the dealership after our test drive. I haven't picked it up yet do the the weather and it kills me that I bought it but don't yet have it.

Love the colors! That is a great looking new MC.

For what it's worth, I leave my boat in a slip all summer...pull it once or twice to clean the bottom. Yes, it gets dirty as heck sitting in the lake, but it gets used exponentially more because I don't have to trailer it to the lake with my young kids. Try to find a used lift, but regardless, use the snot out of the boat...that's why you bought it! Congrats!

The reason we got a slip is because of the kids and time involved in towing. We have an 18 month old and a 4 Year old. It is just going to be a lot easier with the boat on the lake already. As far as cleaning, I have a buddy who has a mobile detailing business so I may just get him to pull it twice a season and give her a thorough cleaning.

I will put on googles and go under the boat and scrub it down.. works great and looking pretty

I agree that you use your boat more when you don't have to worry about trailering, launching etc.

I bought a boat to use it... aka I average 90-120 hours a season... if you put on 20-40 hours shame on you....even more shame on you if you live in a warm climate. You need a lift because you boat just sits there while mine is out counting the hours and burning lots of fuel!

This doesn't help the person in east TN. but if someone in central AR. needs a good lift I have a 3 tank 6500lb lift currently set up for an X-55 for sale at Eden Isle Marina on Greers Ferry lake.$3700

@Flashydubber I will definitely be scrubbing it down, we usually hold up in a shallow cove after we get our boarding in for the day. My biggest fear is blistering but it sounds like that is less likely than it used to be.

P.S. Changed username since I initially registered and I was still showing as guest, never heard back from Admin on getting it fixed so just opened a new account the right way.

We are in TN and use an Econolift (had it for 5 years, not one issue)- about 60% the cost of hydrohoist - gets the boat completely out of the water - uses a large square float instead of the tubes - doesn't rock, very stable and very solid hardware. You could contact them and find out who here does their installs.
