    That's a pretty skookum lift! I need to keep it mobile though.

    I spent the summer on the Mississippi river on a house boat. Found the easiest was to put one chair on the dock and one on the boat and transfer. I'm a T6 para, so this might not work for others.

    Sorry if I sounded like it was for a boat Shaun; it was for my home. Just saying a hydraulic ram setup would work if setup properly.
    The unit they made was for their small crab boats, less than 30 feet, and modified it with a platform.

    I mounted an Elkhorn pool lift to the cockpit of my boat and used lifting straps to lift me in my manual chair in and out of the boat. unfortunately my solution would not work with the weight of a power chair.

    How did I miss this! Do you have any pics? I could use my manual easy enough.

    My husband and I, both wheelers, used our pontoon boat for 30 + years using ramp access from our dock at lakeside.
    Just wondering if you've considered the cost of a sturdy boat, the lift, etc. vs. buying a house on a lake where you can have lifetime access.
    Just a thought......fishing is the greatest pastime.

    If you can use a manual chair and manage the chair separately, a crab pot puller would lift you alone easily. Search "Arima crap pot puller". Then click images and tons of photos.

    I'm a big Arima fan obviously.

    I'll take a look, I was actually thinking crab/prawn puller. Olympia! You could helm your rig to Victoria and I could take a peak..
