+1 the canti will work fine

Set up bunks properly, high enough to completely eliminate chance for skeg or prop hitting if possible. This will depend on your water depth. Odd are you will be fine.

Agree to ensure that you don't go too far fwd.

Some people like these since cables and pulleys are out of water when lifted. Like bturner, I have SS and am completely satisfied.

New canopies are likely a available online if needed.

Check for cracked welds and cable condition.

My apologies to the seller, also a TT er. I misspoke earlier. He said the cantilever was not optimal for use with a mastercraft. Did not mean to offend you or insult you.

My cantilever has worked great for the last 10 yrs. 3 different inboards have had no issues. You obviously need to set up your bunks correctly, but that's easy. I really like that the lift has little stress with the boat in the "full up" position.

A cantilever will definitely work. However, we sold ours for a vertical lift. If I was buying used, I would search for a vertical. Depending on the lake levels (if they change a lot) a cantilever will need to be pushed in and out to work properly, plus the vertical usually can go lower so it can be in shallower water. We still have a cantilever for the pontoon and they work fine and will likely have less expense when it it time to replace cables.

Good points in vertical versus cantilever

FEVER,
I text you some used vertical ones for sale close to our lake.
