Default Boat and jet ski on same lift?

Looking to get a 16k 4-post style lift direct drive in key largo Florida. My boat is only about 9ft wide, and the list is about 13ft wide giving me a lot of extra room. I know the lift is way too much for my little 32cc renegade. But my question is can I move the renegade over to one side and install another set of bunks to put a jetski?

Great questions but it's a yes & no answer. You can slightly offset the bunks to handle a pwc but I certainly wouldn't move the unit to the edge of the cradle as it could cause the cradle beams to list & possibly roll. If you wanted to do this you would need to counter the opposite side with additional weight to balance the beams.

Looks great, just make sure the pwc side is counter balanced with equal weight so that the cradle doesn't roll or give an overload on one side of the lift.

Hello, the catwalks and the PWC is all i was able to put as far as weight. The cat walks are pretty heavy as they are stainless, the bad part is the ski is the lightest out there. Hoping to upgrade to a heavier unit in the future. the lift is 16k and the boat is about 8k.

how do you keep one from floating away when launching the other?

I actually bought some rubber cords with hooks on the ends from west marine and hooked it to the PWC attached to the lift (4 of them). when i dropped the lift the PWC stays in place while i take out the boat. And if i am only taking out the ski then i drop the lift just enough for the lift to float and i drive off in the PWC. its actually pretty simple and works great.

I just added a set of bunks, and bought from bungee cords at west marine. Will take some upclose pictures next weekend. I am also adding a second ski behind my yellow one.
