  • Four Winns engine hatch weight on a 2005 Four Winns 250 Horizon

    Your assistance please - looking to learn the dead weight of the engine hatch cover on a 2005 Four Winns 250 Horizon so that I may then order the correct powered engine hatch-lift to be installed. thank you !

    Don't need the dead weight or you will end up with too strong a lift and difficult to close. Use a spring scale like a heavy duty fish scale and measure the weight opposite the hinge. Even then, the way it's mounted will make a difference.

    Are any markings on the current lift? Have you tried contacting Four Winns?

      You could try searching online Four Winns dealers to call and see if the have anything left over in stock.
      Here's where you as a Four Winns boat owner can look up your own part numbers by searching out your boat. http://parts.fwdealer.com/Catalog/Ca...y=250H-U05-Z00

      The parts guys at Four Winns should know the general weight of the engine hatch as they ship them out from time to time but I don't recall the cover being over say 80 pounds but that was some time ago now so just going off of fading memory.
