What size boat lift would I need?

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2004 Lund Pro V with a 200 outboard motor. Right now I have a 2500 pound lift. Would this work. Thanks.

wp,

I have the same boat and it's on a #3500. #2500 might be a little on the light side for that boat.

I would tend to agree with Paul. I have a lighter boat on a 3500# and have room to spare, which is the way I like it. I have a Lund 1800 Pro-V tiller 75 and was told that I should have a 3000# lift.

How wide is your current lift?

My 2500 lift is 96 wide which works great for my 84" beam. I wouldn't go over 92" wide for sure. 90" would be about the comfort limit of getting it on and off easy.

I not sure how wide it is, but I know I checked and the boat will fit in it. There is only a couple of inches on each side of the boat to spare. I would not want to try putting it in there on a real windy day. We used to have a heavy speed boat on there and never hand any problems, but that was not as wide.

I use a 3,600 pound and 108" wide shore station for my 2,400 pound 1850 Tyee. It is plenty wide and has enough extra capacity when the boat is loaded with gear and gas.

    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..read Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
    • Nice!  WTG!
