rouxsterre, Steve O,

I don't understand how you can lower the front independently from the rear. Your picture looks like you have 3 tubes running front to back. Mine lowers evenly, both directions. The design of the lift makes it impossible to have the front and rear raise or lower at different levels.

I have also seen a lift and boat roll side to side to where I thought the boat was going to go over. Damn, what a sight. It also was a HH.

The sunstream looks pretty trick. The quick up and down is great. Mine is usually a 2-3 minute cycle time.
I take it though that the Sunstream does not allow for back in operation??

When you say 'tubes', are you referring to the pontoons?
Actually, there are four pontoons.
Not only CAN you lower the front independently from the back, you HAVE to. Otherwise, stroke and heart-attack as you watch your boat fall over sideways.
I'll try to get some pictures of the launch/retrieve process.
BTW - I think your other 32 Fever is MUCH prettier.

Peek-
I did get your message.
I'll be on the road today, but I will give you a call.

US1- You're right. No back in loading on a Sunstream...unless you're willing to risk your drives chewing on the aluminum chassis...
