the existing airpump. what's the answer jim

Hello my name is ***** ***** will assist you. Do you happen to have a photo of the pump?

I want to know the largest pump I can put on. I think the actual design for a boat lifter needs to be different to speed the drop into the water as well as speed up the raise out of the water. There needs to be an air pump in one direction and a water pump in the opposite? Make sense?
