    I mounted an Elkhorn pool lift on the boat and use lifting straps to lift me and my chair into the cockpit.

      I adapted a lift that is meant to be used on a motorhome, mounted it to the trailer of our bass boat to get me up and over. By removing the support arm, I can swivel it down and tuck it under the trailer, ready for road trips.



      Don't have a pic of me on it, here is the welder helper testing it out:

            Thanks guys. A lot of places we put in, there is no dock, so had to come up with this trailer solution.

                    that is seriously awesome... what did that setup cost... I've live most my life near the water... It's in my veins. Remember as a kid my father got me a special permit to ride a 3 wheeler on the beach we lived on in Mackay (Queensland). I've missed being able to go on the beach even being able to use, get in and out of a power boat has been impossible... I miss it bad but this has made my day... Obviously it is possible... Would love to know how much that setup cost you. I you don't mind saying that is...

                      Does anyone here have a source to find accessible powered cabin boats (cat or v-hull) near the Chesapeake Bay? I have searched around with very little luck. Once my wife and I find a home, we would really like to get into watersports.

                        Thanks everbody, we enjoy it.

                        Mutley, I found a used lift to make use of, otherwise it would be crazy expensive. I paid $1500 for the lift and the welding was ~$1200 as it took multiple tries/retries to get it all right. The CoachLift runs $5-6K new.(that seems to be a magic number for all mechanical mobility items. }
