CRADLE WIDTH MEASUREMENT
The 6,000 lb. galvanized boat lift comes with standard 12 ft. 6 in. cradle beams. If your pilings are already installed, it is very important to get an accurate center-to-center measurement between the pilings. This measurement will determine the cradle length you will need to order. If the center-to-center measurement is 12 ft. 6 in., then you will need a cradle length of 12 ft. 6 in. If the correct length of boat cradles are not installed there can be issued with how the boat lift operates.
The 8 in. pilings need to be installed with sufficient seabed penetration to support the weight of the boat. Pilings must be square and level to each other. The two drive-end pilings (the pipings where the boat hoists are mounted) should be 6 in. shorter than the other two pilings. Any movement of the pilings after installation will adversely affect boat lift operations and safety.
A. HOIST SECUREMENT
The BH-USA flat-plate boat hoists are secured to the top beam with 1/2 in. x 1 1/2 in. bolts (included). Mount the back of the flat-plate cover between the gear plate and the top beam first. Then align the hole in the drive pipe with the hole in the large gear sleeve. Insert the gear sleeve bolt and “snap” the front cover to the back cover.
B. BOAT HOIST CONTROL CABLE
One flat-plate boat hoist is wired with extra cable (45 ft.) so you can mount both standard drum switches side by side. Do not attempt to wire both flat-plate hoists to one drum switch. We recommend installing the GEM Remotes GR2 double motor boat lift remote. It is designed to operate 1-2 boat lift motors at the same time. It is designed for this type of boat lift.
C. TOP BEAM SECUREMENT
Secure the top beams to the pilings using lag or through bolts. Attachment bolts to piling not included.
D. CABLE INSTALLATION
10,000 lb. & 12,000 lb. galvanized boat lifts will be supplied with 123 ft. of boat lift cable to be able to compound the boat lift. The 10,000 lb. & 12,000 lb. top beams differ from the 6,000 lb. & 8,000 lb. in that they have deadman brackets welded to each beam to attach your boat lift cable. Boat cradles are supplied with compounding blocks.
Product assembly is required. It is recommended that this unit is assembled by experienced contractors or those experienced in boat hoist assembly and installation. Improper assembly and maintenance may void factory warranties. It is important to review and examine all assembly/use instruction guides prior to operation.
