Boat lift

Hi

Not so sure of the correct name of the product but looking for an electro-hydraulic pontoon boat lift system to keep the rib out of the water at rest.
I believe at the time the Cowes Inshore Lifeboat had something like that.

Can anyone put some light to this? Thanks

I haven't heard of an electro hydraulic, but the standard type lift here in the USA for tidal waters uses an air pump to push the water out of the pontoons. I have kept my Nautique on one, and many friends use them. Setup is important, and simple things like balance points, and bunk location is kinda a trail and error process. It is also nice to have some way to center the boat with upright stanchions of some kind.





What about a drive on dock?

Many thanks Peter C
The Aqua-Dock / Versadock system is no good as the rib weighs 4000kg with full fuel and crew so too heavy. I saw something like the ultra lift on lake NC in May of this year. The Barnet Marine Hydrohoist is perfect.
Now only need my client to agree to this.

There's an 8mtr Ocean cabin rib in Cowes on an AirBerth dock
