I've hauled my boat at Shelter Island Yacht Ways and they are definitely not set up for any type of commercial vessel.

Fair winds and calm seas.
I'm pretty sure that there's more than one place called Shelter Island.

Yup. The lift crashed on the Richmond one though.

That being said I think it was the bigger lift.
No dual tires on our lifts here.

Almost squashed the guy who makes our stainless stuff apparently. He texted right after it landed.

Re: nobody under it or around it when in the slings. Maybe in an ideal world. In reality there are people under there with jobs to do a lot of the time.
And once on the slings the jobs are?

Paint block spots. This is my worst fear, a spend a whole lotta time under boats in the slings. Had a tire blow out the other week, but never seen anything like that.

Yer that's not good, they should lower to some soft blocks and shed most weight from sling.

Has to be a maintenance issue either roadway or structure or the winch has no load stops?

Cheers

Re: So this happened at a marina in Vancouver today..

Reminds me of the day we got the "B-Team" working the cradle trailer at the marina and they didn't think to pin the cross-beam on the aft end of the "forks".



The world encompassed: It's not a great day when...

I suspect the tug is mostly OK, but somewhere a lawyer is shopping for a new Porsche in anticipation of the fat fees to come.
