Re: How does a boat break free of its moorings?…
You'll make your money back on the lift in the long run by not having to do bottom paint and cleaning. Plus, I am sure the lift adds value to your condo unit. I'd shell out the extra few grand for the lift. My folks keep a powerboat on a lift and it's a really easy, convenient and secure way to use and store a boat.
I do question whether you need a 10,000# lift. If you are limited to a 25' boat by association rules, I can't imagine any 25' boat coming anywhere close to that weight. You may be able to save a few bucks by sizing down by a few thousand pounds.
