What are the features in the Classic and Free Floater models?
Boat floater lifts work on a guide alarm system. The guide arm travels at an angle to bring the boat forward as it raises. There’s a roller that’s mounted to dock brackets. Depending on how big of a boat you’ve got and what size of lift you have it’s going to bring the boat forward anywhere from 2′ – 3′, so it allows you to have more boat than the length of boat slip you have at your dock.
Which is more preferable for pontoon / tritoon boats?
It all depends on how wide your slip is. The mechanism on the classic model is inside your slip and it does take up some room. So if you have a 10 ft wide boat slip and you’ve got to eight and a half foot wide tritoon boat, and we recommend that you go with our free floater model. Often times, we can put the steel mechanism of the boat lift underneath the water for your tritoon boat.
Your pontoon boats will fit inside your slip with ease and you don’t have to worry about hitting the lift or the dock; just bring your boat in and raise up on the free floater model and you’re sitting pretty.
