      According to the electra-dyne site, the pot pullers are rate for 300lbs. They do make a capston puller as well.

        Once upon a time I had a rig I made from a engine lift with a hand pump hydralic cylinder that I mounted on the side of my F250 and it would lift whatever I wanted. I bought the engine lift at a garage sale and only used the verticle lift parts. I welded in a plate to the bottom of the bed to allow the box steel to sit into a hole and bolted one to the side of the bed and then used a 2x4 to brace to the other side of the bed while I was lifting. It would lift a full 55 gal barrel into the bed with little effort other than pumping the cylinder and I probably had $50 in the whole thing.

        It looked a lot like the Spitz Lift but was steel and used the hydralic cylinder instead of the winch. It might be a bit heavy for boat use, but you could make one out of AL very easy using that design. I have used the same engine lift design to lift my Polaris 750 twin into the pickup when the trans died.

        Just a thought.
        Somewhere along the way I have lost the ability to act politically correct. If you should find it, please feel free to keep it.

          I secured the mount the the floor, side and splash well.

          Steve, did you buy 1 crane and then a couple different mounts? This looks like a good set up for me. Leave one in the boat and then a receiver hitch for the truck. Did you buy it locally or have it shipped up?

            Yes Sir,, I believe I bought the lift at Boat Shop in Fairbanks.

              Then putting a ATV in my boat, I could not use a crane with out flipping it. Instead I built a ramps and pushed it on. I also had to tie the boat off to the shore to keep it from moving in deep water. All it takes is one screw-up to loose the ATV, boat or both if your not careful.
