  • Lake lift question

    Found a shore station manual lift for a steal... Ive never owned or operated one. We've always had to trailer in. We've been fortunate to get a place on the lake. Question is how tough is it to lift the boat with the manual wheel gears? Am I going to regret not going with a powered or hydraulic model? Im fit and don't mind breaking a sweat, just wondering, gonna have kids and grand kids operating this thing someday. Pass the handle, thx in advance.

    I have a shore station and bought a used motor that spins the wheel for you. Cost me about $300! Well worth it. You will need power to your lift or you can buy a solar panel setup for not a terrible amount of money but it’s not as good as running an extension cord to the motor. That’s what we do.

      Powered lifts are nice for sure, but you won't have any issues with your ProStar. We manually cranked our boats for years, still do with my buddy's 95 SN.
