well my dad is a boat hoist installer (also builds docks and drives pilings) and the cable life all depends on what weight boat and what size cable, fraying is not a good sign.

Yea, I've seen some crazy stuff from lift failures. I had a 61' Hatteras MY shift while my guys were lifting it and had to take a sawsall to it so I could stop the deck from seperating from the hull inch by inch.

The sound of the fiberglass splitting was the eeriest thing I've ever heard.

I'd think the motors alone would be worth well over $3,800.

This stuff always freaks me out. I have my lift checked and winterized every year.

Looks the bottom of a canoe. Maybe the strakes fell off too?
