Mine is a 31 but this should give you an idea of the strap placement when the marina moves it

not a problem, if you drop it just re-glass it no big deal. a late friend of mine use to say "if you have a problem throw money at it"

while we are on the subject, beautiful boat.

Not sure why all the hate, it looks like it would be an epic party that will be talked about for years.

IMO think its likely more of a WTF shock reaction he is looking to get for a laugh , than hey look at me reaction.
I don't think it's jealousy at all There are many, many people who could afford to do this but wouldn't because they were raised with the personality that it's unbecoming to show off. They know the old saying that “The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off.” It's just seems that society has become so entrenched with drawing attention to themselves in order to get a social media score........and it penetrates every aspect of their personality.
But...you are correct....maybe this is for a joke and not an event to show off. I don't know the OP and I apologize if this is indeed for a joke and not a stint to impress.

It definitely can be done, even with a much larger boat.

Use some of the dirt to build a ramp and back it in on the trailer.

Whatever the hell you end up doing, just make sure to record it all.

A typical Lull operator has no business trying to do what you are suggesting.

I hope you're aware of all of this but just making sure because that's a big ass boat and this could go south fast.
I think the idea is hilarious and sounds fun. But I agree. Here is the load chart for a JLG1255. Looks like boat will come in at about 10K loaded out light on fuel and gear. While the lift can handle the weight, I dont' think you will have the reach to get in in there without getting too close to the pool to potentially compromise the structure.

Now if you have access to a pair of 1255's or possibly even a 1255 & an 842, just get some foam blocks and do it in two lifts. Get it off the trailer with the 12K boomed in tight, and stage it near the pool on some styrofoam blocks. Re-rig with the 12K to the stern where you can get the riggers down, and the lighter lift on the nose.

This is the load charts for a JLG1255. Other brands are similar.

What could possibly go wrong?

Anyway to “live stream” video footage to THT on launch day?

I would make sure the pool chlorine level is as low as possible. I wouldn't want to dip my boat and motors into a pool the day before the pool guy shocks it with chlorine.

Do it!

Not often we get to have a full debate days BEFORE the McGrathing happens.

This thread has some serious potential! Get-r-Dun

Your pool deck isn't going to support this load on tires or outriggers. Need a big crane set sufficiently far back. If you're a true baller you'll hire this done with the right equipment instead of half-assing it with a Lull.

How deep is the shallow end?

I just want to see how much water it will displace. Or are you going to drain some water out first?

i would also power wash the bottom and outdrives. you don't need a slick of oil or slime in the pool when it is removed. I certainly would not tilt the engines down or run them in the pool.
