Boathouse Side-Pipe Boat Lift Cradle Kit (for Wood Mounting)

Utilizing your existing Boathouse structure is the most cost-effective way to lift your boat. You save money by not having to purchase supporting components or a frame like a Freestanding Boat Lift. With this Boathouse Side-Pipe Boat Lift Cradle Kit, your boathouse is the supporting structure!

This Boathouse Cradle Side Lift Kit is configured for mounting to the wood joists of your boathouse. The drive pipe and hoist are mounted to the side, rather than the center of your slip, which allows easy access for maintenance.

The Lifting capacity of this lift is available up to 4,000 lbs and operates at approximately 2 feet per minute using a Flat Plate Hoist. They come with a standard reversible drum switch, but can easily be wired for a remote control anytime. They are configured for a straight pull and include all galvanized hangers, cable, and brackets. This kit comes standard with a 9-foot-long cradle I-beam, but 8-foot and 10-foot are available.

The galvanized pipe for cable wrapping and wooden bunk boards are not included.

The optional guide post brackets come with the hardware to attach to your cradle beam, you will need to provide the 2″ diameter PVC pipe.
