Default Boat Lifts

I have a 2nd home at the Jersey shore on a relatively narrow lagoon...My boat is a 35 fountain lightning. I canít do a 4 post lift since the lagoon is narrow. All of the other lifts on the block are cantilever. I have read about the "AIR Dock" and seen it at some marinas. Does anyone have any comments or experience with it?

Warm regards and thanks
Dan

How about an elevator lift?

I would look into an elevator lift that attaches to two pilings on your bulkhead. Here's a pic for reference.

Do yourself a big favor and check out the JetDock stuff..... It will be well worth it, those lifts are too much messing around with. 1-800JetDock ask for Ken Peters and tell him PK told you to call.

Starloone, I went from a 4 pole lift to a 2 pole ( elevator ) type, never a problem with either of them. I have a buddy that does the Golden Brand lifts ( top of the line lifts ) In the Toms River area, give me a PM if you like.

IMO, Jet Dock lifts are ok when you keep your boat at a marina, but when it's behind your shore house it's an eye sore... looks ghetto.

Dan,
I have had a 35 fountain on an Airdock for 6 years... IT IS FABULOUS!!

you will need the model size D/E, which covers both the weight and lenght of your boat. There was one for sale in the OSO classifieds recently.

you can't beat Air Dock for Price (at least half of any other), simplicity (requires only 2 psi to lift your boat), and leaving a very small foot print... slightly more than your boat takes up. It's hard to even see when your boat's on it, and you can raise it high enough to get everything out of the water.
