Hope everyone is fine. All the travelift needs is a few tacks and gussets...

Looks like a good reason to confirm weight limits on the equipment.

That's what I'm assuming, all I know is that this was the smaller of two travel lifts the marina owns. Guess they should have used the other!

Cpt. Turtles. Are you sure it was the small one? I see dual tires on the machine and I think the smaller one runs singles. The one in the picture also has the flaired out upper beams. Looks like the big one to me. I don't think that tug should ever have been on their small (75 Ton) one

Oh I can't be sure, only going by what I was told..however it was a boat yard owner that was sent the picture from someone at that marina, then passed on to his yard supervisor and then passed on to me, both of them seemed to agree it was the smaller one and they run the same lift at their yard here. My husband and I built our boat at that marina and he also agreed. Yet you're right about the dual tires..I'll have to run it by them tomorrow!

Most definitely. Here is the pic: http://www.shelterislandmarina.com/p...travelift.html

They have apparently been in the process of upgrading to a 220 ton lift.
