  • 6000 lb floatlift

    I currently have a 6000lb sunstream float lift for sale. I used it with my previous boat. Is there any way it will work with my 19 G23? I know the weight of the boat but I do also know they under weight the capacity if these lifts but a few hundred lbs. Would it work for a while until I can sell it? Anyone have experience?

        I'm asking 18 Canadian. Not sure what the conversion is. I am open to offers.

          I have the 10,000lb Sunstream float lift for my 2019 G23. I have owned it for 5 years. I would NEVER consider the 6,000lb model for a G23. You generally operate a fully loaded boat with people, gear, full fuel, cooler, etc. This will put you at least 500 to 1000lbs over the 6,000lb capacity. These lifts can roll over if they are operated over capacity. Personally I also think they may be over rated. With gear, fuel, and 800lbs of lead I feel confident that my lift is operating well within its design limits but honestly I would not trust it with much more weight. I had to have Sunstream come out twice to change the bunk mounting hardware because it was showing signs of stress. I treat my lift as an 8,000 lbs lift. I wouldn't want to operate it with a 10,000 boat on it.

            FYI, There is a 10,000lb Sunstream float lift available for sale in the Seattle area.

            It's a pretty good price too.

              Agreed. I would not chance it either. I have an 8500lb rated lift for my G23 and itÂ’s aluminum with legs on the lake floor. WouldnÂ’t want anything smaller.

                I was recently in the market for a lift and found a used 6000lb Sunstream. I called the factory to see if it could be modified to fit my 230 which has lead in it and they said their lifts are over-rated. A 6000lb lift is actually only really good for about 5500lbs. If memory serves, they’re just now coming out with a 7000lb-ish lift. Those lifts are nice, but they sure are way more spendy than others.

                  Interesting that any manufacturer would put a weight limit on a lift that the lift was actually not capable of lifting. Most manufacturers would do the exact opposite to avoid warranty/legal claims.

                    Yep. It threw me for a loop when they said it too. I later noticed a warning sticker on the used one I was looking at that says the same thing. Strange world.
