Determine Lift Capacity and Use - Know Before You Buy
A common need of boaters with dinghies and tenders is to hoist a dinghy's outboard motor easily and safely. These lifts allow you to hook up your outboard and haul it to the deck almost one handed! But why stop there? Haul provisions, parts, sail bags, personal bags - all of these uses can be kept in mind while determining the max weight capacity of your new hoist system.
Should Your New Lift Be Stored Below?
Given the versatility of onboard lifts, a permanent mount of a top quality stainless steel cargo lift could be the smart way to go - just determine your placement on deck (keep an eye on rail height) and whether a 360-degree swivel is best before you buy! And if you prefer an uncluttered deck, Defender offers cargo lifts that stow while not in use... Just be sure you have a stop in mind for the handy stowage bag.
Will Your Lift Become An Essential Tool?
At Defender we certainly believe so! Think of how many tools you have aboard that serve many unexpected purposes - your new lift and winch will be used as a davit, engine lift, small dinghy crane, grocery hoist and so much more. Defender's quality products ensure a wide variety to choose from and a cargo lift that will serve you well for years to come.
