Enter the dry weight of the boat (lbs) and the gas tank size (gallons) into the Boat Lift Capacity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Boat Lift Capacity.

## Boat Lift Capacity Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Boat Lift Capacity.

**BLC = DW + TS*6 + 500**

Variables:

- BLC is the Boat Lift Capacity (lbs)
- DW is the dry weight of the boat (lbs)
- TS is the gas tank size (gallons)

## How to Calculate Boat Lift Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Boat Lift Capacity.

- First, determine the dry weight of the boat (lbs).
- Next, determine the gas tank size (gallons).
- Next, gather the formula from above = BLC = DW + TS*6 + 500.
- Finally, calculate the Boat Lift Capacity.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

dry weight of the boat (lbs) = 2000

gas tank size (gallons) = 100

BLC = DW + TS*6 + 500** **= ?
