Boat Lift Preventative Maintenance Tips

Your boat lift gets a lot of use this time of year and it's important it is working like it should since you reply on it to protect your boat. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to help point out some maintenance tips to help keep your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift functioning properly. Check out some of the easy things you can check on your lift and the benefits of doing regular maintenance checks below.


Preventative Maintenance Checks:

Visually inspect any cables and or hoses regularly for any broken strands, punctures, etc. Also, check over the motor and bearings for any damage or part wear. Lastly, look over all working or moving parts for signs of excessive wear.

Try to grease the gears at least 3 times a year.  You can grease them more frequently if the lift is used regularly -- grease after every 15-20 uses.  With new installations, its recommended to grease the unit after the first 5-10 uses.

Whenever possible, raise your lift out of the water and rinse it.  Leaving it submerged for prolonged periods of time accelerates deterioration and keeping it cleaned off will keep it looking and functioning like new!

Spray all motor parts with a corrosion preventative lubricant at least twice a year.

We recommend you operate your lift occasionally during the off-season or extended periods of no boating activity to keep the motor contacts and brushes clean and everything evenly lubricated.

Due to normal wear, the drive belt can become loose over time and it's best to re-tighten it regularly.


Benefits of Maintaining Your Lift:

Extend the life of your lift.
Protect your investment that helps keep your boat or PWC out of the water and safe all year long. Regular maintenance can help increase the longevity of your boat lift. Get the most out of your lift and ensure it is well maintained and working properly.

Prevent lift failure. 
Regular maintenance can help make sure your lift is working like it should. With a little attention throughout the year, your lift joints and other weaker places are inspected. Any moving points are also lubricated to help reduce the friction that may cause a break over time.

Protect your boat. 
Your boat is a major investment and your lift works hard day in and day out to protect it. Keep your lift maintained to ensure it can do its job to keep your boat up out of the water and make it easy to board and de-board when you're ready to enjoy it during the boating season!

Now that you know some quick maintenance tips and the reasons you should pay extra attention to your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to keep your lift working properly. If you'd like help with your boat lift maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks, we're your team. Contact Summerset Boat Lifts today and we'll be on your dock before you know it checking out your lift and ensuring it is working like it should.

Boat Lift Maintenance Tips

Your boat lift is likely not something you think about until it's time to use it. If a lift is not properly maintained, it may not work as it should. You depend on your lift to protect your boat and to make it easy and safe to get in and out of your boat. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks knows it can be frustrating when a lift does not work right. This week, Summerset Boat Lifts is providing some tips to help ensure your lift is properly maintained. But don't forget to read till the end, the last one is the easiest for you!


Boat Lift Maintenance Tips 

Follow these boat lift maintenance tips to ensure your boat lift is always in proper working condition:

1) Start with a complete visual inspection of all moving parts, bushings, hoses and hose clamps. If you see something that doesn't quite look right, give Summerset Boat Lifts a call to come to check it out.

2) Check all nuts, bolts and hose clamps with a wrench for tightness.

3) Check all cables and hoses for any broken strands, punctures, etc.

4) Grease the gears several times per year. It's recommended that you grease them after every 15-20 uses.

5) Due to normal wear and tear, the drive belt can become loose, so be sure to tighten it regularly.

6) Remove the motor cover and clean out any debris that may have gotten in there. It's also a good idea to inspect the motor for any visual damage or part wear.


7) Spray all motor parts with a corrosion preventative lubricant semi-annually.

8) Check carpeted bunks for worn areas and tears, repair or replace them as necessary.

9) Inspect the condition of wood bunks and replace them if any are cracked or split.

10) Whenever possible, raise your lift out of the water and give it a good rinse. Leaving it submerged for prolonged periods of time can reduce its life. Rinsing it regularly will keep your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks looking and functioning like new!

11) Let Summerset Boat Lifts ensure your lift is properly maintained! We don't only build the best boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks, we pride ourselves on offering high quality service for our customers, as well.

Ways a Lift Can Protect your Boat or PWC

Summertime is best spent out on the water at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. Many people spend their hard-earned money on watercrafts to make new memories on the lake. It's important to protect the vessels while you're not using them and that's something many people don't even think about. A boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks is vital to the care of your boat. Learn how a lift from Summerset Boat Lifts can protect your boat all summer long.


Ways a Lift can Protect Your Vessel:

Reduce Chance of Sinking
It's pretty common for a boat to sink while sitting in its slip. Whether it's a small leak or a bilge pump that's gone bad, a boat may start to take on water without you even knowing of it. Next thing you know, your boat has sunk below the water surface, which can be a huge cost to retrieve it and repair it. A lift can help keep your boat up out of the water and more protected against sinking in the lake.

Keep Boat Out of Water
Over time, the water can damage or stain your boat's paint coating. The hard water and slime from the water build up on your boat's surface and can wear down the protective coating and even penetrate and damage your boat's paint. Help reduce the amount of time your boat is just sitting down in the water by storing it on a lift when it's not in use.

Protect Boat from Rough Waters
Our lake is a beautiful recreational spot but that also makes for some rough waters, especially on holiday weekends. Keeping your boat out of the water and upon a lift can help reduce the number of times your boat slams into your dock.

Easier to Clean and Care for Boat
A lift can help you easily access your boat. This makes it much easier to clean and take preventative precautions to protect your boat, such as wax. Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we even have the option to add a walkway next to your boat lift to make cleaning and protecting a breeze.

Keep Debris Away from Boat
A lot of water drains into the lake and this can cause debris to float around the water, especially after a hard rain. Keep logs, sticks, leaves, and other grime away from your boat when you lift it out of the water.
