Default Boat Lift Power

The lake is always high - and killing power to the slip - what do I need or what can I do to power up the lift - can I power it off my batts?

Extension cord from land propped up so it out of the water or a small generator.

Battery power with an inverter should work but do not know how big of an inverter you would need or how many battery's you would need.

Are you on Grand? Water is supposed to crest today depending on how much more rain we get so hopefully it will start getting better up there.

Is lake grand flooding??????

I had a thread on this last year when texoma flooded. In the end one of my boat slip neighbors let me plug into his yacht. The marina also had generators to help people with their lifts.

Grand is getting very high again. It is at 752 right now and the top of the spillway is 755. Fortunately, as far as I know, almost all of the houses and buildings are built above the 755 mark. A lot of yards are underwater and ramps but I do not think many houses and buildings will be damaged.

I wonder how much of that will roll down here. It would just about ruin 4th of july holiday if all that debri gets washed down here like it did last year.

Lat year it was all in Grand on the 4th of July, we were wading through chest deep water to get to the docks and dodging whole trees and telephone poles when on the water. so far the debris has not been as bad this year as last year. Let's hope it stays that way.

That looks like fun. Don't think i would want it on the main lake but for running around in coves it looks like it would be a blast.

Plus, a hell of a lot cheaper to repair than a Cig or an Apache........
