Default Boat lifts?

Any body use them air bag or drive on type boat lifts?
Dock owner I lease from says no to mechanical lift & trailering is getting to be a PIA with traffic backed up all of the time.
Those air lifts look cheesy but wondered if any has had any experience with them.

Whats up!! hope all is well and you had a great holiday. I use to have a cable lift. Some minor problems with belts no big deal. I have also seen the air lifts and know a few contacts for you. Give me a call.

SEE YA SOON

Tony

check out
http://www.sunstreamboatlifts.com/
and
http://www.boatfloatllc.com/

Im looking to get one of these for my place. Condo Association doesnt allow permanent lifts or anything that blocks view (although a boat loft will block a lot less then the cruisers in here.)

I've used Jetdock and HydroHoist both with success. The HydroHoist works out great in a marina setting

There is a drive on lift in our marina. The type that is a bunch of floating blocks attached together. Seems like it is kinda harsh on the hull sliding on and off of the plastic blocks.
