Gear Up for a Big Fishing Weekend

Have you heard? There are two exciting fishing tournaments happening at the Lake of the Ozarks this weekend. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks knows that you rely on your lift to protect your fishing boat all year long. If you're an avid fisher or simply enjoy casting a line every now and again, this is a good weekend to get back out there and wait for the big one! Check out the details of the two fishing tournaments below, brought to you by Summerset Boat Lifts!


Fall Big Bass Bash

Oct 05, 2019 - Oct 06, 2019
Lake Wide
Big Bass Event for Amateur Anglers with 5 weigh in locations across The Lake.. IT COULD BE YOUR CHANCE TO CATCH THE BASS OF A LIFETIME!

The Big Bass Bash is a bass tournament designed for amateurs only. Its unique format allows the weekend angler a chance to win big money like the professionals. Unlike most fishing tournaments which have a team arrangement where prizes are based on total weight, the Big Bass Bash format is distinctive in that it only takes one fisherman just one big bass to win.

Anglers can launch from anywhere on Lake of the Ozarks. The Big Bass Bash will have four weigh-in stations to accommodate the anglers: PB2 (Grand Glaize State Park), Red Oak Resort, Alhonna Resort, & Point Randall Resort.

Schedule Your Fall Boat Lift Maintenance

It's officially fall and that means the boating season is nearing an end. As we reflect back upon the summer filled with memories on the lake, it's time to ensure your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks is prepared for the months ahead. It's important to perform regular boat lift maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks and Summerset Boat Lifts not only helps build and install the toughest lifts around, we can help ensure your lift is well maintained, too! Check out a few of the reasons why you should schedule your fall lift maintenance today.


Ensure your lift is ready for winter.

The winter months can be rough on a lift and if there is already damage, it may cause further damage or worse, complete failure. A boat lift check up this fall can help ensure your lift is ready for the upcoming months. Protecting your boat is vital and a lift that's functioning correctly is a great way to protect your vessel!

Repair any damage from the summer months. 

The rough waters at the Lake of the Ozarks can take a toll on your dock and boat lift. If your lift has seen a lot of action over the summer, now's the time to get it looked over. It's important to catch issues before the cold of winter set in. These repairs can be made early on that way further damage is not caused by the damage.

Replace bushings that wear down.

The moving parts of your lift can wear out over time. A lift inspection can help you become more aware of issues that may impact your lift. The repetitive up and down motion of using your lift all summer can wear out the moving joints and now's your chance to ensure your bushings are in good working order!


Protect your boat this winter. 

You spend a chunk of change on your boat and we're here to help you protect your investment. Even when you're not using it, your boat needs protecting. A boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks can do just that! Keeping your boat up and out of the water this winter, a Summerset Boat Lift has a very important job. Ensure your lift is ready for the upcoming months and schedule your lift maintenance today!

Schedule Your End of Summer Lift Maintenance

Your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks saw a lot of action over the past few months. From lowering down for a day out on the water to protecting your boat from the rough waters all weekend, your lift does a lot to protect your boat. As the summer nears an end, now's the perfect time to have your boat lift maintenance performed at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we not only specialize in creating the best boat lifts at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we also pride ourselves on offering exceptional repairs and maintenance. Check out the items we look over as we perform your lift maintenance.


Visually Inspect Lift

A visible issue may go overlooked but our technicians are trained to spot potential problems that may seem like something normal. We can visually inspect your lift to ensure everything looks good and will be ready to protect your boat during the off-season.

Check Moving Parts

The moving parts get worn out over time and now's the perfect time to ensure they are working well. We can help lubricate the moving pieces to help prevent further strain on the joints of your lift. This can also help keep plastic or rubber pieces of your lift from drying out and cracking.

Tighten Fittings

Fittings can wiggle lose over time. With the waves and constant up and down of the busy summer on the lake, nuts and bolts may move around a bit. We take this opportunity to tighten all the fittings and joints down to offer a stable lift for your boat this winter.


Spot Potential Issues

If something may be an issue in the near future, we can catch it early on. A timely repair can be done and have your boat back up and protected in no time. Have confidence in your lift as we move into the off-season when you may not be keeping as close of an eye on your lift as you maybe would during the summer months.

Preventative maintenance on your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks can help catch a problem before it causes your lift to fail. There's nothing worse than finding your lift has failed or broke during the off-season. Keep your boat protected all fall and winter when you have a lift check performed by Summerset Boat Lifts! Contact the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks to schedule your fall maintenance check today. We look forward to helping you protect your boat this off-season!
