not sure... this boat is ALWAYS on the lift, obviously with no motor but just noticed that it was leaning just a tad bit forward! looked further and i am not sure but maybe the weight of the boat finally took its toll on the lift or what

i am pretty sure that boat has been on that lift for over 1 year, the side supports were all mangled

I bet one of the floatation pontoons sprung a leak.

I think he's just setting up his ballast for goofy stance wakesurfing

It doesn't look like there is any problem....YET!

Oh, and the boat is listing to starboard, not port.

A problem with a lift is that if one side leaks then the lift can tip and spill the boat off the side. It doesn't look like the boat has shifted or otherwise hit anything, so if they pump the floation tube up again it would probably return to a more even keel and be fine, for a while.

You say it obvious has no motor. Have you taken a closer look? The prop would be several feet forward from the stern. It looks like they could be nestled in between the floation tubes.

How big is that boat? Are you sure it's in inboard Rod? It looks like there are a couple of spots under the platform for two outdrives. It may be the shadows.

It looks to be at LEAST 50 feet. You typically wont see a stern drive on anything over 38-40 feet. Not to mention, you would definitely be able to see the hole for an outdrive big enough to push that beast. One thing that IS interesting, i've never seen a boat that big on a lift.

its probably 45-50ft... it does not have a stern drive, and it is now floating in the water, not sure what the deal was but definitely a problem with the hoist/supports.

that boat has sat in that spot for the time i have been going out to Mead
