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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
