Not even funny... so much wrong with that... don't know where to start.

That ranks right up there with this one - fortunately all went well.

YUUUP! Gotta watch the angle of the boom as well as the weight of the lift. A load that is safe when the boom is nearly vertical can get very heavy as the boom is lowered, or swung.

I just don't understand why people are allowed on the boat during a lift.
See it sometimes in our marina too, but IMO there is just no need to take that risk!

Travel lift with slings suddenly seems worth every penny...

Re: So we put the boat in the water today...

well.. the boat is in the water.

And yes, I am OSHA certified to use lifts.. once all the weight is away from your CG... bad things happen
