When the boat is at our place at LOTO she sits on the lift. It's a 12,000# Poly lift. I also have a 6800# Carvel, but I am gonna sell that this spring. Most people at LOTO leave there boats on there lifts all year. I would say more than half the people don't even own trailers. It is very strange to me that people leave there high dollar toys out all winter and I am thinking after our recent storm there have probably been a lot of people rethinking the current technique.

I for one was happy that mine was sitting on it's trailer when I started hearing about docks collapsing in the storm!!

BobbyB,Spicy, and OldSchool where are your slips that you will need a lift at ? I will do everything i can to get you one installed if I have to come up there and install it myself and I will going charge you 20% more than anyone else.

Lapse of Reason I'm working on yours too maybe we can horse trade for the NorTech and I won't take the $70,000 the dealer wanted.

Please email all of your phone #s except you BobbyB I can get yours in any bar bathroom in Md.

Worlds first Jet Dock drive on docking system for a boat. It has been installed now for about 10 years and still works flawless.

Two chain hoists on the lifting eyes. Worked great once I beefed up the lifting eyes.

We have a 10,000 lbs overhead cable lift for the Nordic and we are going to install a 3,000 lbs lift for the Seadoo jet boat this spring. It's the only way to go.
