How do you attach these brackets to a 2-1/2" wide galvanized "I" beam ? Hard to do since mounting slot is only on one side and my I-beal runs parallel with the bracket slot> :-( I do NOT want to drill in my galvanized I-beam. Thoughts ??
Look up Fix marine supply they have everything you need for a boat lift.How do you attach these brackets to a 2-1/2" wide galvanized "I" beam ?

Thank you for the reply . I found out those V brackets were designed to mount to a perpendicular support with U-bolts. Not actually meant for attachment to a parallel support like a cradle I-beam. the use of V brackets ( 6 total for tritoons ) seems expensive if Bennington recommends under decking lift between pontoons or below pontoons on keel lift that's fine with me.I wish I could answer your question but I wound up having to scrap the retrofit lift project. After having several lift companies look at it and tell me it wouldn't work for a tritoon, I sold it on Craigslist and have a new lift being installed in March.
Just posted this on another thread. "Have a 24LXSR with ESP tubes on order and need to covert the carriage on my boat lift from v-hull to tritoon. My dealer says the boat lift only needs to be supported by the outer tubes, no center tube support needed, and that the bunks need to run the entire length of the tubes. Am curious to know what others think about this recommendation?" So wondering if anyone on this thread has any thoughts on this?
I tried to zoom in ( see attached ). I see that your bunks are basically flat with black rubber coverings. I am preparing to do the same with THREE pressure treated 2x10s lying flat on the I-Beams with fasteners that secure the lumber to the I-Beam. GatorBak rubber is very expensive. Please advise on what black coverings you have on your flat bunks. ThxIf you go back to page one of the post and see the pictures i downloaded if you zoom in you may see the anchors that they sell.
