Shoremaster boat Lift

I just got a shoremaster 4066 boat lift for my 2007 X2. And I have a few questions if anyone might know. Due to the pitch of the water at my waterfront I cannot get the list posts level from front to back. I have about 2 inches of pitch. Is that okay. I leveled the boat by adjusting the bunks. My bottom is rocky here so most likely it is not going to sink.

Looks awesome. Does it go up smoothly? If so I would think you should be fine.

Off topic, but where did you get the speaker and rack covers?

Try using flat pavers to level your lift. Or I've had luck kicking a bunch of rocks under the pads to get it level.

As a Shoremaster dealer I would say that you are within the acceptable range for operating the lift. The shoremaster has rollers so it doesn't tend to "get stuck" as the lift goes up and down. If you are at the end of your adjustment with the standard legs they do make longer legs. I have used pavers in some situations but if the bottom pitch is steep they might allow the lift to move as you enter and exit the lift.

Better

I put 3 large pavers stacked up on either side . It is much better now. Turning the wheel really is a pain. The rack covers are from speaker sox.com

I have 3 Shoremaster lifts and your set up looks fine to me. I always have a little front to back slant on my boats in the lifts. What I did was get some longer legs so mine so that I could get the lift in deeper water. Easier to get in and out of the boat and also cranking it up. I got tired of cranking so I bought a solor powered unit. Nice....
