Do I Need a Boat Lift?

Boat LiftBoat owners who wish to store their boats at their waterfront properties can choose from one of two options – keep their boats in the water or have a boat lift installed. Though storing a boat on a lift when it is not in use is not an absolute necessity, it is certainly the best option. This is because avoiding extended hull exposure to the water is one of the best ways to ensure the longevity of a boat.

For many watercraft owners, cost is a primary concern when they are deciding whether to have a boat lift installed at their properties. When you consider the protection they provide a boat and the convenience they offer, it is clear that a lift system is a worthwhile investment. Over time, boats absorb water, which can lead to a wide array of problems, such as corrosion, staining, blistering, and organism growth on the hull, all of which can be expensive and time-consuming to clean and repair. Furthermore, inclement weather conditions can cause a boat to rock and repeatedly knock into the dock and pilings, causing further damage. With a lift system, boat owners can have peace of mind that their vessels are safe and secure. And, because the boat is hoisted on a sturdy platform when not in use, it is much easier to clean and maintain.
