    Hydrohoist Water Depth Question ?

    whats up oso, i just bought a used hydrohoist 6000# side tie "B" model approx 20 yrs old for $1500 (fair price?). the website lists 4.5 to 6.5 min water depth. i only have 4 feet at my dock. i want to park a 27' fountain on it and am concerned if this scenario will work. i will not back over the lift and will pull head on to it so i dont think in needs to go as deep. also i dont think the draft on my fountain is that deep as compared to a cabin cruiser. anyone with knowledge on this setup think it will work? thank you.

    depends on the river bottom, my HH is in a river with a really mucky,soft bottom, & when the water is low it will actually sink into the mud a bit, so you have to power the boat on & off a few times, & it will carve a path in the river bed. $1500 sounds like a decent price, 4' of water should not be a problem
