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.

1. First, determine the dry weight of the boat (lbs).
2. Next, determine the gas tank size (gallons).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = BLC = DW + TS*6 + 500.
4. Finally, calculate the Boat Lift Capacity.
5. 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 = ?
