    Opnions on which lift?

    I want another pivot lift - my current mini-mag was purchased used several years ago, and due to the new, higher bulkheading and tide changes from Sandy, at low tide I can no longer float the ski. The problem is the lack of boom height, as I can stand in water above my waist, and the boom will be significantly off the bottom, so depth is not an issue.

    Any feedback on brands of lifts? I'd probably go up to a 1500 lb capacity since I'm starting fresh.

    I just bought a lift after 6 years without. I went with a vertical lift. It allows for large depth swings. The one I got is made in Minnesota by Beach King. It's a welded frame with large pulleys in all the corners. The welded frame makes for a strong and stiff lift.

    I think I prefer a pivot like I have, to keep the ski on land - easier to flush/wash/pack/etc, no?
