  1. Received the order. Assembly instructions not provided; nor available. Difficult to understand how to assemble if you choose the wooden bunk option. No images available either. Two stainless steel bolts/nuts on the lift were seized buy aluminum shavings (poor/unclean installation technique suspected). Had to cut them off and purchase, replace with new.
