Boat lift drum switches


Recommended Posts

Just had my 4 post 8k lift installed today from boat lift us. I need some ideas on mounting the drum switches. Don't want it to look like a hack job. Anyone willing to share their setup. Thanks!

Again, not sure what switches you are using but, we had several docks here on the lake that had switches that would stay in the lift or drop position f you let go of them. In other words it would stay in lift mode if you walked away. A couple of them walked away for too long and ran their boats too high damaging the boat and the lifts. The switches that go back to the off position after letting them go are much safer. You do have to stand there the whole time the lift raises and lowers since you can't let go of the switch. This is the reason we went to the Gem Remotes. You could raise and lower the boat from inside the boat or moving around the dock.
