    Shop hoist Engine removal 2007 seadoo challenger 230 wake

    Hi, does anyone know if a standard 1 or 2 ton shop hoist has enough height and reach to pull out an engine in a 2007 seadoo challenger 230 wake? Thanks

    Probably not. If the boat will fit under with the arms up I'd try a chain fall and even then it might be tight.

    I use a chain fall on a 7 foot high bar to pull engines. The HF 1/2 ton model handed a 4-tec longblock with no issue.

    be cautious when lifting engines on first time rigging, if you are in a hurry, it's easy to get hurt bad.

    I mean like losing a finger bad.

    Looks like the harbor freight 2 ton shop hoist has a boom height of 73-5/8 in. to 89 inches and a boom length of 41 in. to 61-3/4 in.
    The 2007 seadoo challenger 230 wake engine compartment area looks like its less then 60 inches in height on a trailer.
