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.

      I haven’t been on Whitefish and only out a few times for a few hours each but have done well by down sizing and going slower than I’d think I’d have to.   Dragging and slow drifting smaller plastics with little or no jigging and long pauses with smaller sized jerk baits have worked the best.  4-8lb test on spinning gear.   I’ve caught crappies, gills, perch, walleye, smallies, largies and pike all on the same baits in the same systems at the same depths.  Those depths vary by system but all the fish seem to be using the same water - according to what I’ve seen the past few weeks.

      Hey Mtnman. Thanks…the last two times out my wife took the pictures….still smoke in the area, as you can see in the background. Fire ban is still in place for much of northwestern Ontario. Rainy is about a foot low from normal water levels. Temperature has been in the low 80’s for the most part which about average for early August.

      Counting the days, and looking for cooler weather also. As always, your  pictures are excellent !  How is the fire situation, and what is the lake level ? I'm worried BIDEN is going for another lock down, which isn't going to play out well here. Pray for the best, prepare for the worst. Thanks as always for the pictures !!!

      My wife and I were out on Tuesday from noon to 3pm. Light east south east wind using jig and minnow. We caught over 30 walleyes with quite a few double headers. The biggest was 23” and another 7 in the 18”-21” range. 10 were in the 14”-17” slot range but did not keep any with the rest being 12”-13”. Water temperature was at 73.5 degrees. Air temperature was at 86 degrees.

      Been awhile since any reports so here goes.  A tough summer this has been. Never saw so many weeds yet there is very little wild rice. Fishing has been tough to say the least.  No real pattern, nor walleyes are not in there usual summer haunts it seems. Been so slow we headed up to Leech last week for a Musky trip.   Non caught but four follows,   one on Pelican reef that was in the mid 40" range.  Then back to Whitefish for a few more hours of no activity.  Even the panfish are slow.  Anybody with any better reports lets here them.  Lord send some rain.
