Boat Hoist Help

Does anyone use a permanent hoist with an I-Beam cradle like mine?

If so, can you please post pics of your v-drive on it and how you set up the bunks? I am looking for advice on how to set mine up for my T22.

If it was me, I'd set my bunks up so they line up with the Fibecs chassis stringers. That's what I did on mine however it's not a hoist like yours but I don't see how the logic is any different.

I don't have the I beam cradle but I did all day Sunday with Andrew setting up the lift for our t22. If it helps I can get dimensions tomorrow. I will say go a little wide in the rear of possible, the paddle wheel or speed pick up was directly above my bunk the way it was originally set up. I can better photos too.

@addicted2wake dimensions and pics would be great. How wide did you set the bunks, are they equal front to back? Also, How high are the bunks in front and back so the bow has enough clearance and shaft has enough clearance not to hit the beam of lift. Thanks in advance and sweet boat!

Ok no problem. I'll take the dimensions and get some good photos tomorrow.

OK, hopefully this helps. Let me know if you want to see anything specific. As mentioned before, I wouldn't go any narrower on the bunks at the rear at least….if the boat moves 3" to the left, the bunk will hit the paddle wheel. I would have made them a little wider but i have guide ons that help restrict the lateral movement.

Thanks @addicted2wake. Really Appreciate you taking the time to get the pics and measurements. Now I can set up my lift before my boat arrives in a week or so!
