Transporting a boat lift:


Recommended Posts

The Chemist

So after buying the new boat and getting on the lift, I have found that it is not rated for the boat. Thus I am now looking for a used lift. Does anyone know of any lift transporter/installers that will work around Richmond/Eden Valley. Or if there is a place to rent a trailer that would be capable of moving  3500# capacity lift?

I called channel marine for that purpose a few years ago for that purpose but they were no help.    I found a trailer at general rental center in cold spring.

I would think that a double snowmobile trailer should be capable of handling an aluminum boat lift.

Th guy i bought it from had access to a pontoon trailer which worked perfectly. I believe channel may have a trailer for rent.

Last month my friend also had bought his new boat which was transported by a boat transport services. After purchasing his new boat he was also dealing with this same issue and searching for a used lift. Then he had bought a snowmobile trailer, which was very much easy and affordable to lift his boat. So, I think you should buy a snowmobile trailer by going through online sites or you may also ask some guidance from boat transportation companies.

I think 3500 lbs is too much.  Trailer your boat and head to a large open parking lot to practice accelerating, coming to a complete stop, making turns, and backing up. So if you are perfect in it then you should trailer it yourself otherwise there are some hauling company for boat.

The more you practice handling your vehicle with your boat in tow, the more comfortable you will feel on the open road.
