The harsh realty is that in most parts of the world today you have to be aware that your gear might get stolen if it is not safely secured. The forespar lift with winch is now standard equipment used on many sailing and motor yachts. Sailors from all over the world use a lift with winch to get cargo on and off there vessel because they do not want to lose their valuable boating equipment to thieves.



For most parts gone are the days when you could leave your dinghy and outboard on the beach tied to a tree and return few days later, confident that it would still be t
here waiting for you.



Peace Of Mind

Now days for peace of mind the best way to make sure the outboard and other precious equipment is still there in the morning is to hoist it onboard with a nova lift with winch and safely secure it. For most sailors this has become part of their routine and the only difference is how they go about it. Like everything else in this sweet old world there is the hard way and the easy way.



Those sailors who continually choose the hard way of lifting their items on board using poorly designed, home made equipment, can be heard cursing and swearing every evening at the elements which try rip the item from their grasp and send it then sinking slowly to the ocean floor.



Embarrassing Injuries

Precious sun downer time is lost as the jury lifting rig snags once again, coupled with the inconvenience of having to build a new rig to relieve the first one. Lying on deck you can see an untidy mess of tangled, worn bits of rope, just waiting to cause possible serious injury to the now frustrated and embarrassed sailor. In his haste to recover the situation, a limb injury may occur, or worse still, he may hurt his back.



Be Prepared

The prepared boater (knowing that this will be part of his evening or daily routine) makes the lifting chore of getting his equipment back on board having finished using it an easy, safe and fun operation by installing proper lifting tools. The stylish and well designed lifts and davits made of stainless steel to withstand the harshest marine environments and are available from well established marine outlets.



Such a sailor does not end up with bruised or cut hands or a sore back because his equipments ease of handling prevents mishaps.



Bad Luck

Then there are those who do nothing to prevent the probable loss of their belonging but instead complain endlessly about their bad luck. That the cause of their bad luck is in fact poor seamanship does not enter their mind. Just as on land, you cannot leave your valuables lying about at an anchorage then hope that no sneaky, light fingered pirate will not make off with it.



At anchorages where equipment is securely stowed on board by their prudent owners thieves and pilferers do not get the chance to operate
