    This is my second Boat Lift Buddy. I like its simplicity. This on is lifting my ski boat. It need a little extra friction on the wheel to work well. I just lean on it a little. Work without a hitch on my pontoon.

    Delivery was better than expect, shipped fast, arrived fast, good shape, packing was very protective, well designed, great price, i have not installed yet but dont expect any problems as mounting look substantially designed and motor appears robust.

    The product is good works great, faster than my old Shorestation lift motor. The holes where you connect the two shafts didn't line up so I had to drill them out.

    12V boat lift buddy

    Can't rate function yet but installation was a breeze. I put it on a Metalcraft 5000 manual lift in about 30 minutes by myself. All of the included hardware seemed well fitted and the rubber wheel snugs up nicely against the boat lift wheel. I look forward to not having to crank the boat up. It's nice too that you can easily unhook the bungee cord and use the wheel to lower the lift manually if you choose.
