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...

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
