Default Looking for a hoist

I'm looking for a hoist, preferably in the NY tristate area.
If anyone knows of one for sale, PM me, please.
Its for a 24ft 4500-5000lb boat.

Thanks.

Hey Storm:

I bought an Air Dock hoist from Air Dock. Their website is Airdock.com

Although I haven't used it yet, it is about 50% cheaper than Hydrohoist, etc. It completely deflates and can easily store anywhere as well as being very transportable. Check it out, maybe it will suit your needs.

In addition, the pump can be stored in your boat rather than take space on the dock...seems like some marinas like that idea.

Throttle,
I am very interested in this system. Lake George doesn't have many docks with lifts. It is very hard getting a permit and since this isn't anchored to a dock it semms like you don't need a permit. Do you mind if I ask how much? Where you purchased it? Can you buy direct or must you go thru a dealer?

Thanks

Bret:

I purchased the system from the company directly. Their number is 317-931-8169 or their website at www.airdock.com. I haven't received my boat
yet so I can't tell you how it works. But I purchased it for around $3500.00. I think it's rated for 8500 lbs and my boat with full tank and gear should be around 6250.

The best feature I like is that you can pull it out of the water, roll it up and take it home for the winter. I also purchased the full frame kit included in that price. They were very helpful even after the purchase. I'd check out their website and/or call them and they'll send you a brochure.
