Default Boat Lift Question

For those of you that have a 2 piling lift, with 2 "L" arms that the boat sits on, how long is your boat and how far apart are the arms?

A lot depends on the length of the boat, usually install them 10' - 12' apart and again depending on the length of the boat we have used bunks as long as 20'.

I'm putting in a new bulkhead. the pilings will be 5' apart. So correct me if I'm wrong. If I mount the lift on those pilings, 10' apart, I should be fine? My boat now is 24'. If I got a 30' all I need is to do is get longer bunks. The lift should handle a 30', it's rated for 10,000lbs. Bought it anticipating a larger boat.

While we are talking about boat lifts I am thinking about putting one in at the marina were I currently have in and out(travel lift) obviously I will be paying for it but has any one else done this and did you get a long contract for the slip in case the marina gets sold?????
