I have a 15,000 Galvalift for sale. here it is:

Chad, looks like what I have, just needing another lift. Not sure if I could get it to fit in a 12 ft well

I just purchased a new 3 arm 12,000# polylift with a work platform, it's a brut and I found Mark very easy to deal with.
They are a bit pricey but I feel well worth it.

I also have a used Galvalift that I purchased from Summerset, and while others have expounded on their service, they didn't perform up to my expectations. I bought the lift in January for a March install and had to beg them to get it installed, and they did a half ass job. They also hooked the pump up backwards which caused the lift to rotate and break off one of the guards which they have never replaced.

I have had a couple Poly's over the years, and never had a problem. Currently have a 15K with the work platform and it works out great. Service after sale has also been good so far. The only service I required is minor adjustments to the set up.

They are a little pricy, but usually by the time you upgrade the competitors (If you can even get that done) to have the same features as Poly the price difference is not a big deal.

By the way, they usually offer last year pricing through the St Louis boat show in Feb, then they institute the current year price increases after the show.

I just used Dave Hotz at Dock Realty. He Sold my 8000# Poly Lift and then I purchased a 12,000# Polylift all in the last month.

I will be using him again at the end of the month when I sell 6800# Carvel Hoist that I am aquiring through the purchase of an additional condo.

I believe I bought my lift from titan. It was great. They just picked it up yesturday to sell for me. All of the lifts mentioned are pretty good but I would stay away from any of the box style lifts. Three of them have broken on my dock. It gets hit pretty hard by cruiser wakes sometimes. Parts I would not think would break snapped because the waves cannot roll over them. They get pushed side to side too much.
