Just got our new lift installed. I haven’t seen it in person yet but my wife ran away to the lake this weekend and sent me a video of it.
My installer recommended raising the lift after leaving the dock with a reasonable explanation as to why. out of 40 slips at our place, about 15-20 have lifts. The only time I see them raised unloaded if if they’re gone overnight. If they’re out just for the day, they all leave them down.
Anyone have an opinion? I’ll be gladto listen.

I leave mine down while I’m out. I find that lowering it without weight on it sometimes causes the cables to Unwind in a disorderly way, which can cause it to become unlevel. If I’m off the lift for more than a day I’ll lift it out of the water empty.

I leave mine down if gone for the day. When I take the boat out for more than a day the lift is raised out of the water.

When out boating for the day, we leave our lift down. When I take my boat in for service and it will be out of the water for a day or more, I raise the lift.
