Q. Do I have to allow extra room within the rack for my boat to be picked up by the forklift?
A. Yes, this is known as “fit tolerance” and requires 18″ of operating room vertically and 6″ on each side of the boat.

Q. My boat will barely fit in the rack I’m considering (allowing for the required fit tolerances) should I purchase or consider the next larger?
