Swinglift - easy handling of an outboard engine

You only have one back and after breaking it couple of times during one season you have to find out a solution that makes life easier now and also in the future as we all get older. From a fellow myHanse-forum member we got The Swinglift! It makes life easier, protects your back and the best part; we use our dinghy with the engine more often these days than before. More information can be found in the manuals page.

 

1. As normal we did  not want to drill in the hull so we created an adapter that we could fit the Swinglift onto. The parts are regular things that you find in a marine shop.
 

2. The idea with the adapter was to get the Swinglift outside the hull and to avoid it touching the flag pole holder.
 

3. As shown here, the flag pole holder is not affected and we did not need to move it. Yet.. The strut for the pushpit is shorter on the starboard side so the adapter had to be shorter.
 

4. The strut for the pushpit on the port side is little bit more inboard so the adapter had to be longer on that side.
 

5. The adapter fitted in its place with the Swinglift 6. By attaching the mainsail halyard to the belt on the Swinglift you can lift a heavy engine easily.
