Do any of you guys use a boat lift? I'm thinking of getting one and don't really know of any good brands or models. The slip I use is 14x24 with about 5-6 feet of water under it. I'm wanting to stay under $5k for sure, and don't mind if it's manual, just something that won't rip off my tracking fins/prop/rudder and will keep the boat out of the water during the work week while summer is here. Inflatable docks would be cool too if anyone has had good experiences with em. Anyone have any good ideas or know of any good brands/models? Thanks in advance guys.

We have a 2006 LSV and we've used a 4000 lb Great Lakes Lift manual for the last couple years without any problems. This year, we upgraded to a 4000 lb hydraulic Shorestation with the key fob remotes. So far, it has been awesome. It is 2 years old and we have about $3,600 in it including the solar panel to keep the battery charged. Both lifts have had no issues with fins, etc. I suspect you can use just about any lift as long as it is 4000 lb + and you adjust the bunks correctly. Good luck!

if you have fixed dock and structure overhead (ie boathouse or pilings) look at lunmar cradle lifts @ http://www.lunmarboatlifts.com/
I posted pics of my lift/boathouse in my profile.Drew

I have a Summit lift w/ a Commander electric motor. It works just fine for my 2007 OBV. It has quite a bit of ability to be adjusted.

I bought my Hewitt lift in 2003. I did a lot of hand cranking. I just installed the canopy and the lift motor. The boat is much better protected with the canopy vs the cover. The motor is cheap, but it is so much better than hand cranking.
I paid $2800 for the lift in 03, I just paid $1800 for the canopy and catwalk, and picked up the lift motor from Overtons for around $400.1997 MasterCraft 205
