Boat storage: Golden Enhances Its Elevator Lift

Golden Elevator Lift

The Elevator Lift is the solution for owners who want the benefits of out-of-water boat storage, but either can’t have or don’t want piles installed on their waterfront. And with recent engineering enhancements, the lift has new configurations and capacities that make it even more adaptable for everything from a PWC to an offshore sportfish boat.

The Elevator Lift is the solution for owners who want the benefits of out-of-water boat storage, but either can’t have or don’t want piles installed on their waterfront. And with recent engineering enhancements, the lift has new configurations and capacities that make it even more adaptable for everything from a PWC to an offshore sportfish boat.

The Golden Elevator Lift installs on seawalls, embankments or concrete piers, as well as on shoreline wood and steel piles. The lift is manufactured for both the specific location requirements—such as length of travel and angle of installation—as well as the boat itself. Depending on the overall and distributed weight of the vessel, the lift can have a single, two or four tracks. The enhancements include dual-track 24,000 and 27,000 lb. capacity models and a new four-track, 60,000 lb. version.

Golden manufactures the CE-approved Elevator Lift to ISO 9001:2015 standards using only fully welded 6061 T6 marine grade aluminum with 300 series stainless steel fittings and sacrificial zinc anodes. A robust box construction mates the track beam and drive connection. Heavy-duty UV-rated Nylatron wheels on stainless equalizer brackets provide exceptionally smooth operation, especially with heavier vessels.

Important for a vessel of any weight, custom bunking on the Elevator Lift ensures the hull is fully supported and doesn’t cause strain. Carpeted wood or optional aluminum bunks installer-adjust to accommodate a wide range of shapes such as deep-V, steps and/or strakes, as well as inboard and outboard power. A video is here:

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
