Have never wired a boat lift. I have 2 3/4 motors at 13.6 amps 110 or 6.8 220. There is a limit switch. There is a main box then a contactor box that will turn bot lift motors on simultaneously.

Yeah they said 110/220. So I figured 2pole15 would work my question is if the switch inside the control box is 220 and how to wire the whole thing up. These are not a kit. the homeowner pieced this all together and wants me to make it work. I drew my own diagram. But I'm hot sure if it'll hold up.

are you looking at the rating of each motor? 6.8+6.8=13.4 ,

That is the control box I've mostly seen around here. There is a link to wiring diagrams. Note the instructions tell you to not use the motor wiring directions but use the directions provided by the controller.

I don't know which control box you have, but if it does not have GFCI protection you need to use a GFI breaker.

Wire rating
(6.9 x1.25)+6.9= 15.5 amps minimum
Breaker size
(6.9x2.5)= 17 next size up is 20
20+6.9= 26.9 amps max


Edit:Whoops
I would do it this way since it is on one circuit and the motors start simultaneously.

(6.9+6.9)*1.25=17.25, use a 20-amp circuit.
