Why hydraulics?2017-12-11T15:47:02+00:00

The lifting ability to the amount of power you use is extremely efficient, its faster and you take away 120volt of AC connected to a steel plate and move over to a 24-volt DC, our design also eliminates cable backlash from dropping your boat too low.

If anything fails, will my boat fall?2017-12-11T15:51:55+00:00

If the system fails for any reason there’s a counter balance valve that is built in so that it has to have pressure before it can release. It cannot fall.
