Without a lift getting to the water involved a scary 15 minute drive in a 4 x 4 vehicle on a steep, rough track. With the lift it will be less that 5 minutes.

When complete this will be our longest lift to date and our first 3-pitch lift. We had to stop work on 9 November when the first snow arrived. It’s not safe to work on a snowy hill


The top station will be the front corner of the deck. It’s a long, long, long way to the water.


Looking down the track. The motor on this lift is about 60’ down the track. The winch was too wide to locate it at the top of the track. The installation hoist is mounted on the track.
