Looking to get a larger boat lift for a Malibu 247. The dry weight is 4000lb, so we are probably looking for a 5500 or 6000 pounds lift. Ballasts would always be drained before going on the lift, so we don't think anything larger is necessary. We would want a canopy as well as a solar-powered motor. We currently have a 4000lb ShoreStation for our boat, but it will not be adequate for the 247. Does anyone have any opinions on the various brands? Ex. shorestation, shoremaster, craftlander, RGC, lakeside, Floe, Hewitt.......
We are leaning towards lakeside because they seem to cost less, but at the same time are getting good reviews. Any other opinions on any of the other brands? Leaning away from shorestation, rgc, floe and hewitt because they seem to cost noticeably more.
