Ok I bought a house with a giant 8000 lb boat lift. I've never had one and I've never used one. I'm on the Gulf coast of Florida and I want to get a very light, very narrow 16' by 5' ~400 lb skiff. Obviously the skids will need to be adjusted. If they are kept in the center of the lift the boat could be 10 feet away from the dock its next to. I'm having trouble with the logistics of getting on and off the boat. Any help or ideas would be appreciated, maybe some of you have already solved a problem like this. Thanks.
