I'm sure that guy knew what he was doing but, damn, that seemed close to bottoming out on the rudders. When we had Stella hauled in Delaware City, there was no "trough" to drive through.

New Travel lifts have huge capacities, 300 ton plus. The main worry would be to get the strap placement correct.

This is the largest boat that Oceanside Marine can haul. It's a tight squeeze at the haul-out.

I know you're right...but it's still a little fabric strap! And it's MY BOAT that's hanging on it just inches from the (sometimes uneven) ground while it moves along the ground. What could possibly go wrong?

"just inches from the ground" would have been comforting to me. Watching this made me nauseous. Those two little fabric straps carrying 114000# at 80 feet off the ground. Puckered for days.

Those straps are special, I learnt about them when one failed after a non factory repair. Dropped a steel sailboat, with man standing on the deck. They should go back to the maker for any repair, it`s no time to cut corners. Both man and boat were damaged.

Tell me about it!



Although in the above case there are four metal connection on the gunwale to attach. "My" somewhat distant boatyard uses straps, but they use straps in good shape unlike a more local boatyard. Good straps:

Re post 12. Never, never, never allow persons to ride a boat during a hoist. I have seen too many failures for this to be considered a safe practice.

See also post 11, serious personal injury occurred when a damaged poorly repaired sling broke with the boat owner onboard.

Probably better than using a heavy lift helo where all the pilot has to do is hit the wrong button

The photo with several people on the boat is hoisted by wires attached with bolts to the hull and not a sling. ... Have no explanation why the Chinese boat-mover needed people on board. ... Life is cheap there?

The marina in Ocean City, MD where I run my charter boat had a travel lift accident years ago with a 100+ ton commercial fishing boat. The stern strap was too far back, got cut on the steel skeg, and broke when the boat was most of the way out of the water. When the lift picks up a boat, the tires compress. When the strap broke, the tires unloaded lifting the travel lift off the ground. Operator on the lift was beat up pretty badly including 2 broken wrists.
