Questions and Answers for Carter Lift Bag Pillow Bag., 6000 LB:
I have a non-motorized houseboat that needs new flotation on one side. will this bag lift one corner enough to remove old flotation and replace with new? Does it have to touch the bottom of the lake to lift the boat? thanks

Hello Bonnie, this lift bag will lift up to 6000 lbs. If that is enough lift for you then yes this would work for you.
Carter Lift Bag - Pillow Bag 6000 lbs
Enclosed Pillow Bags are totally enclosed, with over-pressure valves to vent expanding air as they ascend. The advantage of Pillow Bags over the Open Bottom Bags is that they can attain their maximum lift in much less water.
For this reason, they are excellent for raising sunken boats, and for towing jobs. Like the Boulder Bags and the Ocean Salvage Tubes, all Pillow Bags come with brass quick-disconnect fittings attached to a short filler hose (connects to 1/4' pipe thread). Please see the table below for sizes and information.
