Re: Oops!!!

I have never seen the Canoe Cove travel lift operated in anything but a safe cautious manner. Last year they hauled a boat I worked on after it was on the hard - a Grand Banks 58. Canoe cove said it was their heaviest lift up to that time. Their tarvel lift has a 50 metric ton load limit. The Grand Banks was almost at max load and if the tanks had been full it would have been too heavy. It is always used with a remote as far as I know. I heard that the remote malfunctioned and one wheel did a 90 degree turn and over the track onto the wood walkway beside the track, which it fell through.
