Floating Boat Lifts Anyone?

Electronics, projects, motors, drives, props, drill some holes, etc.

Floating Boat Lifts Anyone?

PostMon Mar 20, 2017 1:01 pm

Hi everyone. Been researching some floating boat lifts for my 197 Islander and wondered if anyone had any experience, good or bad with them. I'll post some links later with prices and information later, but just wanted to know if anyone has one and what they thought.

I am an electrician that primarily wires multi-million dollar beach houses. As part of that, we wire a large number of docks and boat lifts. With that said, I am not a fan of floating lifts.

Buy a Tide Tamer 4 post lift and be done with it. Made in the USA (North Carolina). I have used them for years. http://www.tidetamer.com/
Have a great day!
