    I am looking into building a motor controlled lift.

    I need it to be portable.

    The motor I have in mind may draw 30 Amps under full load.

    I have read that a voltage boost regulator is a good thing to have
    between the battery and the motor.

    So, my question is:

    Where can I find a 12-14V in, 12V+ out at 30+ amps boost regulator??

    Build or buy is fine.

    You've misunderstood what you read. Repost on sci.electronics.basics to
    find out how. Here, all I am obliged to do is to point that a voltage
    boost regulator wouldn't do anything useful in your application.

    Where did you read that?
    If your battery is properly rated for the load you shouldn't have a
    problem. I have seen thousands of lift gates out there hooked directly
    to a battery, lots of vehicle winches too.......
