Default Boat Lifts

I Live in the Ohio River and wan to install a boat lift. Does any one have any recommendations? I believe I am going to be in a cable lift because the water level changes.

Any recommendations on manufacture, distributor, DIY kits?

Thanks

I would think you would want a floating lift because of the level changes. How much does the level change where you are at, and are you on a floating dock?

For floating Hydro Hoist is one of a few made.

I love my manning. Also can adjust each leg for water changes.

One pic is from a crazy blow out of the water in the marina.

Default lift

I have a friend (and yes I know well who my friends are) that had a floating lift that had problems because it was in the channel and waves give him a fit with that type

I like Hydro Hoist as well there is usually one per state

example: Hydro Hoist of Tennessee
