Boathouses – All our customers who have a boathouse, who bubble/run a de-icer around their boathouse generally store their boat on the lift throughout the winter. This saves them the storage fee as well as reducing the possibility of damage during the boat storage process. The boat still needs to be winterized by the marina’s mobile winterizing technicians.
Permanent Dock who bubbles – Customers who have a permanent dock but no boathouse, who bubble/run a de-icer to protect their dock, lower the lift, disconnect the hydraulic box and leave it ‘as is’ for the winter. In the spring, they re-connect the hydraulic box and they are ready to go. We perform this service for many of our customers and it takes less than an hour.
Seasonal Dock/Lift – Lastly, for our customers who have seasonal/non-permanent docks, we generally remove their lift in the fall and re-install it each spring and sometimes do the same with their dock. Sometimes their seasonal dock guy, if experienced, can perform the fall and spring seasonal removal and re-installation of the lift, especially if it is a 4,500lb capacity lift or less.
