Boat handling has evolved over the years from the rail systems that were reliable and proven, albeit slow and requiring many man hours to haul, store and launch boats, to the versatile travel lift which has become the mainstay of boat handling. This equipment has undergone a metamorphosis from the early stages of a tow behind frame to the current hoists that boast power slings, load scales, four wheel drive and steering and remote control operation. These latter designs have improved boat handling in safety and speed while minimizing the number of hands required to haul and to launch boats.

As the boating industry grew the need for more efficient and versatile boat handling equipment grew too. The constant demand, by end users, to add features, increase lifting capacities and improve ergonomics has driven travel lift manufacturers to design and engineer these sought after changes.

In the past customers would wait upwards of eight months for the delivery of their travel lift. Currently, a travel lift can be delivered in half that time predicated on production demands.
