Default Needed Tender and Chock Recommendation

Needing recommendation on a tender that will fit my 50' prestige w/14'9" beam extended swim platform. I believe the max weight on the swim platform is 660 Lbs.

I'm looking at a Walker Bay generation 10 LTE DLX w/30 Honda HP with integrated EPA fuel system and wondering if anyone has any feedback on this model.

I've looked also at the AB 10 VSX. Also Brig Falcon 330 but that only allows for a 20hp engine and a bit tight. Ofcourse there are others but they are $18,000+ and out of budget.

Any recommendation on any other that is no more than 11' LOA and not to wide and under the maximum weight when wet and fully fuelled.

Also Looking for recommendations on types of chocks to put on the platform. I see online UMTMarine chocks, Chock Masters and also the sliding YRM chocks. I like the idea of a chock that is recessed flush when the boat is off the platform and one is made by sealift pop-up chock. https://www.sealiftusa.com/pop-up-chocks/ but I don't know if the pop-up chock would suffice in supporting a tender like that but definitely functionality my favourite of all.

Does anyone have experience in any of this or recommendations?

Thanks so much in advance!

Is the platform hydraulic so it will lower the boat into the water and back out, or are you going to have to manhandle it on and off? If the latter you will want the lightest tender you can find. In addition to chocks, you will need tie down points. Overall, you need to walk through the ergonomics involved in deploying, and the more complicated process of getting it back on and secured.

Hi, It's on a hydraulic platform so yes will lower it into water and back out. Someone also told me about the Zars 0 and Zars 1 tenders that look really nice as well and light.
