It is up to the boat owner to mark sling positions on the toerail. Even the best travel lift operator doesn't know every boat's lines where they cannot be seen. They certainly should ask if the owner is present.I chose the marina partially because they have a fancy boat lift that doesn't use slings. We were in a marina that had a Travelift and saw numerous instances of slings lifting on prop shafts. I wonder how many of those boats ended up with a bent shaft.
