Default 26 reg to 32 4 post lift

Right now we have a 10k 4 post 2 motor all Aluminum lift for our 26' regulator. I am in the process of buying a 32 reg. Fully loaded with fuel and other bs with the current engines the boat will max out at 11,500. My question is this 1500 lbs over recommended max a problem? If so what can I do to fix it?

Thanks in Advance

Yes, you're going to need a new lift.

Your going to need a new lift. Lets say a bilge pump fails or something silly that is out of your hands or you have fat friends that like to go in the boat before an offshore trip to look at gear... now your 11,500lb boat is now heavier with water or snow. Also hypothetically if the new boat was 10,000lbs, you will still need a new lift... The rule of thumb with boat lifts is the boat must weigh 20% less then max load of the lift. So if your boat is 11,500 max weight you will need a 16K lift to be safe. You don't want to see any deflection in the top beams.

You don't want to come home and have your prized investment hanging upside down off the lift because one of the cradle arms or top beams was compromised.

I have a 29 Reg that I put on a 4 post lift with a setup that topped out at 8000 lbs maybe? The lift guy swapped out the cables, cradle, and pulleys I believe to beef everything up and increase the specs. So was able to keep the motors and get the boat up and down pretty cost effectively. A 32 is bigger so may not necessarily apply in your case, but it worked out pretty well for me FWIW.

Your boat loaded with gear is close to 11,600lbs. You need a bigger lift.
