Anyone out there have experience with these products on their personal docks? I'm looking to lift a 20' ski boat most of the time, and occasionally a 20' bass boat. The water level at full pool is 6' deep at my dock. Normal drought conditions the lake gets down to 3' at my dock.

I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive way to lift the boat out of water during the summer months. Low maintenance is important. Thank for your feedback.

I don’t have any experience but from the looks at fishing around them, the hydra hoist would be an issue with the lake at 3’ especially with a ski boat that would draft more.

what are the ones with the pontoons that fill up with air? that would seem a good choice in case it gets so low the pontoons end up sitting on the dirt.

Ronnie, that's hydro hoist. Friend has it. Works great but they've had the blower go out and couldn't raise the lift. It might be my best option even with maintaining the motor. Anyone else owned these items?

Just heard from Jet Dock that water must be a minimum 4' deep. If it gets to 2.5' deep, the bouyant squares get damaged.

I have a pontoon boat, jet ski, and the Skeeter all in the boat house with straps. Don't have to worry about shallow water, if the boat will float everything works great.
