Ouch. I guess if there was any silver lining at least you weren't stranded in a cradle, or worse yet in the sling when it went rogue.

Thanks for the photo - I didn't realize how mangled the lift was.

Now thats the way to do it, wonder if that would work with a GB36? I'd like to see how they get that off the trailer and onto the stands.

you place your back blocks and loosely place your stands . You next let the air bags out and lower the hydraulics pull ahead and repeat . It takes about ten minutes. And yes it would haul a GB36

Ours is hauled like Jamie Mac's, except the trailer is hooked to a large backhoe's front end, so that the backhoe travels in reverse.

Although if that breaks down, there is a new Travelift a few miles across and up the Bay that might be able to handle us in a pinch (485 ton capacity).

Our marina uses a hydraulic trailer for the small and medium size boats and a rented crane for the larger (up to 40,000 lbs) boats and sailboats. Done it this way for over 20 years I guess and seems to work for everyone.

When you travel lift guys haulout do you place it on the dock or ob a trailer. We also have travel lifts but if you want to haul any distance over land this is cheaper and easier.

The Coot goes "on the hard" only for maintenance. The boating season here is year-round.

This. It is scary for the uninitiated. Nothing like adapting a bit of old lumber yard equipment!

Oooo look, a video. " type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

Even scarier!

Mark,

Just curious, how often do you haul the boat out? Once a year for me with the warm Florida waters (bottom job and running gear maintenance) and monthly bottom cleaning by a diver--or me when the water is above 80 degrees! I replace the zincs every 3-4 months.

Murray I've never seen one of doze.

I see no hydraulic pump engine. How do you adjust the pads to fit the boat?

janie mac,
Never seen one like that either. When I first looked at it I must have assumed it was still a yard trailer but it looks like they took your boat home for you. How far do you live from the haul out ramp? They must charge by the mile. I'd sure love to have Willy here in my yard.

I see we now have 7,500 members! I'm amazed. I have been noticing that the "discussion" list of the threads most recently posted on rolls over very quickly. Couldn't believe it just awhile back I'd posted on a thread, come back an hour later and the thread wasn't even on the list. I'm surprised I don't have stage fright.

Everett has a new yard with a 75 ton sling lift with two multiple straps for support. We waited 3 years before moving to Everett for the new 75 ton as they only had a 35 ton. The Eagle is 40+ tons. Some of the commercial trawler in Everett are still to heavy have to go to Port Townsend or Seattle. Most go to Port Townsend so they do not have to go through the locks.

I am such a wiener and can throw a fit, the Eagle is taken out and put in bow first. The reason is the Eagle has a single screw and full protect keel. Bump in gear and drift through the straps. Where the lift is located if the winds is up its bitch turning around.

Phil Fill,
Lattitude in LaConner has a 100 ton lift.
Call Pat about your launching problem.
Could use small boats as tugs.
I'll help.

Once a year. Every second year have the bottom repainted (two coats) and all 11 zincs replaced. Alternate years for inspection and any needed repair such as replacing any fast-disappearing zincs, treating the propeller for barnacles, etcetera.

How massive are your zincs?

While we're on the subject guys, how do you avoid damaging the thru hull transducers with the lifting slings?.
I'm in the process of having some new, and very expensive, trans installed while the boat is on the hard for winter, so I was just wondering.

Tie ribbons on the rail to show where you want the slings to be placed. Yardworkers have also asked me where to place the slings. Of course, one needs to be familiar with the hull's characteristics.
