I'm tring to size a lift for a 2002 Conquest 295 with Optimax 225's. This is what I have so far:

295 Dry Weight 8,500 lbs
2 - 225 Optimax's 964 lbs
3 - Group 24 Batteries 160 lbs
330 Gallons Gas (6.152 lbs/gallon) 1,845 lbs
40 Gallons Water (8.34 lbs/gallon) 333 lbs
20 Gallons Water (8.34 lbs/gallon) 166 lbs
4.3kw Generator 200 lbs
7,000 BTU AC/Heater 70 lbs
Wench & Ground Tackle 100 lbs
Misc 300 lbs
Subtotal 12,638 lbs

I have the hard top options does anybody know what I should factor in for that? Did I miss anything?

Yes, that is the "classic" inflatable wench, which also serves as an emergency personal floatation device.

It's always good to have a wench on board ;)

Seriously though, I have a similiar rig to yours. 1998 285 CQ, same options, but heavier 4 stroke motors. On a lift, I always like to go over what I need. I went with a 16K capacity lift. Personally, I didnt want to purchase a lift where I was using the max capacity of the lift. I like to have a little buffer zone there.

I have a 305 Conquest on a 20,000 lb lift. Works perfectly. I will mention that people like to board the boat while it is on lift to avoid the big step associated with low tides. So count on 4 people. Not supposed to do this but....

Also be sure to buy the remote control. One of the better inventions ever for this product.

I agree, the remote is a must have.
