    Apparently all free boat lifts sink or at least partially submerge. My wife and I carefully towed this lift 3 times without plugs in the tanks with no issues. “Carefully” being the key. I gave the lift to a neighbor who disregarded all of my advice and made it about 50 yards before tipping it and dumping all of the unsecured hardware into the lake. I won’t get into all of the things that were done incorrectly. You know who you are.
    Oh yes it was totally my fault and I was so careful and got it almost to the dock after 15 miles when I hit a wakesurf wake and it tipped. I even had a generator to run the pump and tried to save it in the middle of the lake.
    Like a dumbass I tried do this all by myself including launching the damn thing using my 205 trailer. The storage place used their fork lift to put it on my trailer.

      At least the entire lift is salvageable
