Just placed an order for SeaLift's (relatively) new platform hydraulic lift for our 420 DA. I almost bought one of their cradles last year and now I'm really glad I didn't as this platform looks really great. Only 3 feet added on the back with automatically-retracting, self-adjusting chocks for the dingy/waverunner. So now our 42, I mean 45, is actually a 48. Maybe the cheapest way to get a bigger boat! The guy I talked to (Alan) mentioned that they are doing all of their own installs now, but will be switching over to dealers by May - along with increased dealer pricing. So anybody that would like to get a better price and "factory" installation might want to get on the phone. Apparently SeaLift is working side by side with SeaRay to provide OEM setups for the new boats...so that is reassuring. Though I've read that previous OEM efforts for SeaRay platform lifts were less than robust in many cases. I also like the single piston design the ensures and even lift without one side tilting more than the other. Ours is rated for a 900 lb. load which is pretty impressive. One question though...is it advisable not to leave a load on the boat for longer periods - like during the week sometimes when we're not there?
