Permanent boat hoist

Starting to kick around the idea of a pile driven boat hoist with a roof. DNR rules suggest 14 x 24 with 1.5 foot height to roof peak is what I could do. Thinking four piles with either steel or microlam box frame, then scissor trusses and metal roof.......

Show me pics, give me ideas, thoughts, suggestions

Or you could buy a book called "Shelter At The Shore", The Boathouses of Muskoka, and do some daydreaming!

Disregard my post in that thread. Good luck with your hoist project.

On our lake, we have relatively low water level fluctuation so almost all of the docks are permanent. We used 2" schedule 40 steel pipe, with a metal roof. We made our rafters so the boats could tuck up under the roof if necessary, and be completely protected from weather. We also wanted to make sure the boats with bimini, tower, or skylon could fit up under the roof and tuck away.
