Re: outboard motor lift

Have a Garhauer stainless steel motor lift on my Catalina 42. Easy to install. Mounted it on the aft rail center/port side, just inboard of the stern rail seat. Remove it when not on extended trips where I will be using the Caribe. The mounting ring remains on the rail and the base ball-mount also remains. Your 15 hp 4 stroke is relatively heavy, so be sure to get a lift that will carry that weight. My mounting position allows the lift arm to swing out far enough to lower the motor onto the Caribe stern. You'll also need a motor lifting strap. Good luck. Lee in N.C.
