Answer: 

Most lifts add approximately 12” to the required water depth over and above the draft of the boat. The exact distance that the lift adds is the height of the cradle beam plus the amount of clearance between the center line of the boat and the top of the cradle. The full height of the bunks on a “V” hull do not affect the additional water amount depth needed as the center line of the boat is lower than the top of the bunks. We recommend the bunks be positioned so the center line of the boat is only 2”-3” above the cradle. If the amount of clearance is higher than it needs to be one will need that much more water depth to float the boat off the lift.
