    Trailer Boat Lift

    Has anyone ever used one of these? Any thoughts? https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=98161&familyName=TotalBoat+Trailer-Mounted+Boat+Lift#pr-header-back-to-top-link

    Lifting boat off trailer to paint

    I completed the project successfully. No injuries or damage. Biggest issue I had was keeping the boat level and tough placement of the jack stands. When lowering the boat back onto the trailer, i did not pay attention and she sat crooked until launch. 25" block height under the stern and 20" height under the bow.

    Lifting boat off trailer to paint

    All right, I will be the guinea pig and post what i did.
  4. I am looking for some advice to lift my boat above the trailer high enough to apply this year's bottom paint. I borrowed some block and boat stands but in looking at the way the hull rests on the bunk trailer it is giving me some pause. 2009 Cobia 215 7/2008 mfg date Hull number CBAM015i809
