Default Boat Lift Question

I am looking for a lift for our 28 Powerplay. Found a decent deal for a hewitt lift. Are they any good? We have moderate wave action and I dont want to install pilings. The lift would be in Lake Winnipesaukee. Thanks for your help

I live on Long Island, and recently purchased a "HIGH- TIDE" brand lift. Pretty expensive but real nice. A close friend is a dock builder and says they are the best. The name may be spelled HI-TIDE and they have a website. Hope I helped. ERIK

I live on a very rough lake and went thru several lifts before finding the Viking lift. Absolutely the best lift.

Lake Winnipesaukie!!!; --truck driver shows up at our facility(guy named Dave) the other day- we're walking through the warehouse and he stops when he sees my boat and says "now that's my kinda boat, I've got a 42' Fountain high deck back home". At first I'm thinking, sure, yeah, but he does seem to know his stuff. Anyway he mentioned that he boats on or has a new house on Lake Winnipesaukie. Anybody know of the boat? supposedly a pair of 700hp.
