Default Lift Questions

I am shopping for a lift for my 29 Fountain single step. I have looked into the following manufacturers:

Sunstream FloatLift
DavitMaster
IMM
Storm Surge
DECO
Hi-Tide
Quality
No Profile

A local guy gave me a price on a 13,000 lb. IMM lift installed for about $10K.

Any advice on which direction to go and maybe save some coin in the process?

Thanks.

I've had a 14k hydrohoist for years and it works perfect every time. Its on its third boat and second marina and I bought it used 4-5 yrs ago.
