    What is everyone doing for a boat lift for their Bennington since Bennington says the toons have to be supported on 2/3 or more of the toons?

    NuCraft lift that supports all three toons. I’d post a picture, but issues with the photo sharing website I use. If I get it figured out, I’ll post some.

    Cwag please educate me as I don't use a lift, I have seen the picture of yours and others and they all look the same with the flat boards. I can see the obvious placement of the toons on Vikingstaff's lift. I would have to believe that each of your toons sits directly on the plank. Is it more difficult to "park" on yours? What are the pros and cons of each lifting method?

    It's not a problem and the boat sits between the guides on the sides. It doesn't have to sit in a certain spot.

    Carl, what's the clearance on sides, from your rubrail to guides when you are on your lift?

    I have 1” of total clearance in my setup similar to Carl’s, but the PVC pipes have some give.

    HydroHoist 6600 lbs lift...(a bit of overkill on the weight capacity) with a set of bunks for each of my 3 logs. I'll post a pic if I can remember how to do it.... IMG_1522.JPG
