YARD MACHINERY Upgrades suit big boat customer base Located on the northeast corner of Lake Montauk on Long Island in New York, the Montauk Anglers Club and Marina is ideally located for fishermen and recreational boaters alike. The marina is less then one mile from the inlet, which gives quick access to offshore fishing on Long Island and also provides easy access to the recreational waters of Napeague Bay, Gardiners Bay and Peconic Bay. The marina has been operational for over 40 years but changed ownership in 2018 and started operating under its current name. As a full service marina, it works on all types of boats for the regional and local community and has prompted the new owners to modernise. To service a customer base with increasingly large fishing vessels and outboard engines, the 30-year-old boat handling equipment needed to be replaced. The marina opted for Marine Travelift equipment, selecting a BFM11 50 ton boat hoist and a 27,000lb/12,000kg capacity marina forklift to boost its overall lifting capacity by nearly 50%. Boats up to 110,000lb/49,900kg can be safely handled by the new hoist, which is equipped with a wireless radio remote control for added efficiency. Montauk Anglers Club also decided to add clearance with an optional top beam extension, making it easier to lift vessels of different sizes without the need to adjust their rigging. The Marine Travelift M2800H Hydro M_Drive forklift, meanwhile, comes into its own when handling all vessels and, most specifically, the increasingly popular centre console fishing boats – for both service and storage. The machine can easily retrieve, launch and store vessels up to 27,000lbs and handles centre console boats of up to 40ft (12m) in length. – May/June 2021 47
