So now that I got my boat lift home I'm wondering if you can put the raise/lower wheel on the opposite side. Right now, if I'm facing the water the wheel is on the left side of the boat lift, but I'd really like to put my dock on the right side of the lift based on how my lake is laid out.
I have a vertical style lift, so I'm wondering if it's as simple as turning the lift 180 degrees and then rotating the canopy so that the longer part is still in front. I think I would have to also flip the bunks the boat sits on too since they over hang further in the back.
My only concern with doing that is that the wheel would be at the back of the boat instead of in the center where it is now. Would this cause problems with the wheel not lifting from where the weight is more centered? Or is there something different I can do to switch the wheel to the other side? Thanks in advance for the advice!
Here's a picture of the lift for reference...
