Transfer from sailboat to wheelchair with stationary hydraulic lift
A hydraulic lift for people is on a stand at the dock. The lift is screwed in place with 6 screws and is designed so the user can operate it. Two padded straps serve as sling, the longer one under the legs and the short one under the arms. The straps are tied together with ropes (clove hitch) and attached to the lift. Cover in winter.
Hydraulic lifts are no longer in use. They can be available at the assistive device centers.
