John, Thanks for the help. I was thinking I would use 2x12 but will measure the tracking fins and prop to see how much clearance I need. I was also thinking about doubling up the 2x12 on each side, do you think that is necessary?
When lining the boat up you said the back 1/4 needs to be hanging over the rear beam? Does that mean I want the prop about centered over the rear beam?
Sorry if these are dumb questions but we just bought the lake house, I totally gutted it and remodeled, moved in last June. This is my first lake house and first boat lift.
