I am going to say that Hull to deck joint leaking is probably the least of their concerns now

Absolutely. Every one of those disasters I've seen has happened with a crane. I've never seen film of a travel lift wrecking a boat - Having said that, I imagine it has happened and now we'll have film at 11.

See it sometimes in our marina too, but IMO there is just no need to take that risk!
Our boat club has no way to get on/off the boat at water level. The sling lift ramps are too high. You need to stand on the boat until it's lifted about 4' where the deck is level with the pavement, then the sling lift pulls over to where you can step off the bow or stern onto the pavement. Then the boat is lifted the rest of the way up.

Are you saying that nobody else does it this way?

No cranes for this kid. I'll motor 3-hours to the nearest travel lift. Gotta watch that video again.

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

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.
