Make Boat Maintenance a Breeze with a Summerset Boat Lift

One of the main benefits of keeping your boat on a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks is in regards to maintenance. By keeping your boat up out of the water, you are able to minimize the regular boat maintenance needed. Investing in a boat lift from Summerset Boat Lifts now, will save you money in the long run. Keep reading to learn how boat lifts help make boat maintenance a breeze!

Reduced Boat Maintenance 


When your boat sits in the water for an extended period of time, you could experience hull delamination, intake fouling and more on your boat. By investing in a Lake of the Ozarks Galva-Hoist boat lift, your boat will stay dry and out of the water when not in use. While boats and other watercraft are designed to be used in the water, they weren't designed to be stored in water for long periods of time. Eventually, the water, and contaminants in the water, will effect the integrity of the boat. By raising your boat up on a lift, it will be easier to keep your boat clean. A clean boat bottom will not only reduce the likelihood of frequent painting, but also result in better boat performance and fuel efficiency. Significanlty reduce costly wear and tear on your boat by storing it above the water line with a lift from Summerset Boat Lifts.

Common Boat Maintenance Issues


When you store your boat in the water for long periods of time, a variety of issues can arise. Here are just a few common problems you could encounter:
  • Corroded Outdrive 
  • Bubbled or Blistered Gel Coats 
  • Mussels Attaching to Your Intake 
  • Algae Growth on the Hull 
  • ...and more!

Galva-Hoist Boat Lifts


When it comes to protecting your boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, trust none other than the Galva-Hoist line of floating boat lifts from Summerset Boat Lifts! Galva-Hoist is engineered at the Lake for the Lake, Lake of the Ozarks. They are extremely capable of withstanding the roughest waters here at the Lake.

Things to Keep in Mind While Attending the 2017 Boat Shows

Boat show season is upon us. This is the time of year when you can get the best deals on boats, boat lifts, and other boating accessories. Make the most of your time at these events by keeping these boat show tips from Summerset Boat Lifts in mind.

Attending a Boat Show


Whether you're in the market for a new boat or just interested in browsing what's new for 2017, attending a boat show can be a fun way to spend your day. Grab your family or get your buddies together for a good time. Boat shows often include much more than just boats; vendors from a variety of companies will be there with demonstrations, presentations and more. You're sure to find something to keep you entertained!

Boat Show Tips


If you are actually in the market for a new boat, there are some things to keep in mind as you're making your way through the exhibits at this year's boat shows. Here are a few of our top tips:
  1. Do Your Homework - Before stepping foot into the boat show, do some research. You want to have some idea of what you're looking for or you can get easily overwhelmed. Make a list of questions that you want to ask the dealers. Be sure to have a budget in mind before you start your search as well. 
  2. Think About Financing - If you're serious about buying a boat, it's important that you have an idea of how you will pay for it. While some people may have the cash to buy a boat, most will need to get financing secured. You might want to consider getting a pre-approval before you attend any boat shows. By doing so, you'll better be able to set a budget for how much you can afford - and you won't be tempted to fall in love with a boat out of your price range. 
  3. Check Out the Show Guide - Many boat shows will have a list of all their exhibitors and vendors available prior to the show. Take a look at those and make a list of who's booths you want to be sure to stop by. With so much going on at these events, you can easily get distracted and miss something you wanted to check out. 
  4. Talk with the Dealers - Rather than just checking out the exhibits yourself, be sure to talk with the dealers. Ask the list of questions you prepared ahead of time. Not only are you looking for the best values in boating, you want to make sure you're working with a reputable and knowledgeable dealer. Customer service is very important when it comes to such a big investment as a boat.

17 Fun Facts About New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is one of America's favorite celebrations.  Not only is it a chance to throw lavish parties, but the holiday brings hope for a more prosperous and happy 365 days. In today's blog, Summerset Boat Lifts offers a few fun facts about New Year's Eve.

New Year's Eve Fun Facts


1. Each New Year's Eve, 1 million people gather in New York City's Times Square to watch the famous ball drop. Close to 1 billion people around the world watch it on TV.

2. The Time Square Ball was first dropped in 1907 after there was a fireworks ban. Back then, the ball was made of iron and wood, was lit with 25-watt bulbs and weighed 700 pounds. 

3. Today, the Times Square Ball is covered  in 2,688 crystals, is lit by 32,000 LEDs, weighs 11,875 pounds and is 12 feet in diameter.

4. In 1942 and 1943, the ball was not lowered because of wartime restrictions.

5.  Approximately, 2,000 pounds of confetti is dropped on the crowd in Times Square at midnight.

6. Approximately 22% of people admit to falling asleep before midnight on New Year's Eve. 

7. Approximately 44% of American adults plan to kiss someone at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve.

8. It's tradition to ring in the New Year with family and friends because it's said that the first people you see will either bring you good luck or bad luck (so keep your foes away).

9. The tradition of setting off firecrackers and other noise makers at midnight on New Year's Eve started to scare away any remaining evil spirits and to ensure a brand new start. 

10. Many people celebrate the new year by popping open a bottle of bubbly. Each holiday season, Americans consume close to 360 million glasses of sparkling wine.

11. About 45% of American's make New Year's resolutions, but about 25% of those people give them up by the second week of January. The most popular resolutions include losing weight, getting organized, spending less and saving more, staying fit and healthy and quitting smoking.

12. Auld Lang Syne, meaning "times gone by," is a song traditionally sung at the end of New Year's parties. While most people don't know the words to the song, the overall message is that people have to remember their loved ones, dead or alive, and keep them close to their hearts. 

13.  Many people across the United States will eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day for good luck throughout the coming year. Be sure to also eat leafy greens, as the more you eat, the more prosperity you'll experience.

14. If you want to have a Happy New Year, don't eat lobster or chicken. Lobsters can move backward and chickens can scratch in reverse, so it is thought these foods could bring a reversal of fortune.

15. The first recorded New Year's celebration dates back 4,000 years to Babylon, when the first moon after the spring equinox marked the new year. In 46 B.C., Julius Caesar created a calendar with January 1 as the first day of the year.

16. The month of January is named after Janus, the god with two faces, one looking forward and one looking backward. He is the god of beginnings, transitions, gates, doors, passages and endings.

17.  The top three most visited destinations in the United States to travel to for New Year's Eve are New York City, Las Vegas and Walt Disney World. Globally, Sydney, Australia is the destination of choice, as you can see over 80,000 fireworks go off over the famed Sydney Opera House.
