Thread: Boat lift cables breaking!!

Threaded View

  1. Boat lift cables breaking!!

    Last year I had bought a used 5600 Hewitt Vertical lift for my R20. Towards the end of the year I upgraded to a 2017 Z1 and after a few times using the lift the spreader cables snapped (at separate times). When the first one went I ordered two factory cables because I knew the other side wasn’t a factory cable and figured it would break to. But I just put it on the lift for this year and I am very nervous they’ll break again.

    My question is how should the cables be tensioned. I have attached the diagram (mine has the winch cable going over and back due to it being a heavier lift). I’m thinking I may need to tighten the rear load cables but I’m not sure.
