Boat Lifts Maximum and Minimum Water Depths

To function properly, the hoist must be installed at a depth where the boat is nearly floating free in the lowered position and protected from the waves in the raised position. Maximum Water Depth measurements are taken on the lake end of the hoist with the legs fully extended. They are based on raising the boat out of the water 24 inches.

NOTE: In lakes with extremely rough water, the boat may need to be raised more than 24 inches.

Minimum Water Depth is determined by taking the measurement listed on the following charts plus the draft of the boat. These measurements are taken at the end of the hoist closest to shore. The measurement listed is the distance from the platform to the ground when sitting on a level surface.

IMPORTANT: The boat draft must be added to the measurement on this chart to determine the true minimum water depth.
