Picked up a 3 year 12k lb lift from Ebay last year for half the retail price. Bonus was it happened to be located right here in Va. Beach just a couple of miles form my house. Just had to go over and take it a part.

Keith, I would look around Houghton lk, there will be tons of them for sale in that area. These are very unweilding and would have to be taken apart to go any distance, I bet there is one in the water ready to go, just reverse the lift, put a row boat under it and float it home. I would look in that area only, betweeh Higgins and Houghton you will find a nice one.

Mitch, I'm going to look up there too but I'm not too confident I'll find one with the capacity I want. I brought the lift for the pontoon over from Pentwater last week and am bringing the lift for the four winns over this friday if I can get a permit for the oversized load (width) because I don't want to take it apart. We'll see, really don't need it till the spring now. I'm going to haul some snowmobiles up there in Sept anyway.

Have the jet dock system in place and love it. I will post pics if you want. Of course you can see the boat in action at www.jetdock.com They used it for their video and research development. Very happy. The dock has held up after almost 7 years no problems boat is clean.

Thanks,

Dean they are awsome but HUGE money. That is why I went with a regular lift.
