Boat lift canopy sides/extensions

Recommended Posts

ronixride

Anyone know of another place like this or have suggestions for long sides on a canopy?   http://www.canopyskirts.com/main/Default.asp

I'm looking to add a canopy to my Craftlander hoist and the deepest I've found is 41" from the peak to the bottom of the sides.  The sides only hang 12" down from the bottom of the frame.  Boat is a '07 Vride with an Illusion tower.

Suggestions appreciated!

There are a few mfg's that make longer canopies.. I believe Flow does. However, i just made skirts for my boat because none of them were long enough with the tower up.

Max has a super deep framed canopy with 24" drop roughly 70" coverage if I recall ordered on my new one but u could get it for any lift I think if u let them know the width/length..

Check out Touchless Cover. If you are adding a complete canopy, this might be the way to go. Have one and really like it.

If I were buying a complete new lift, I'd probably be looking at a Shore Station with their new power curtain system. It looks easier than the Touchless Cover because you can just leave it wound up on the curtain winder mechanism over the winter rather than removing it.

We have had two different set ups for our Axis. One variation was with the Floe side extensions and last spring we had a custom canopy made with longer drops on the sides. I prefer the most recent set up. I have tons of pictures so don't hesitate to ask if there is anything you would like to specifically see.

I like the touchless idea but if I recall they were like 4-5k which I think Is similar to the Shorestation "screens" price although I think the SS should be a little less since they are screen and not solid.

I always remind myself I need to see how they fair in high winds but always forget to look, anyone with experience?

I'm going with a deep frame new product from MAX I'll post pics when I get it.. I will probably need to add zip up area to access boat from side but will wait untill following season after I get everything into position and know where to add it. The framing canopy ribs are over 4ft deep with a minimal 2ft drop to prevent long sides flapping.. I'll see how it works in few weeks

I believe that is the case. Although this version doesn't run all the way down to the lake bottom. It's hard to see but they cut off right below the water surface.

Call boatliftanddock.com I have a craftlander I bought used and they got me setup with everything I needed to convert to deeper water, a higher canopy and a V drive bunk setup with guide ons. They are luckily on my way to my lake place which helps me but they are extremely knowledgable and friendly (also great pricing).
