1) To Protect Your Boat from Rough Waters.
Especially during the summer boating season, the Lake of the Ozarks can experience some rough water conditions. Extra boat traffic, as well as summer storms, can cause rough waves that could cause your boat to hit your dock if its not up on a lift. Your boat lift will keep your boat in place as the waves splash up around it. This ensures your boat doesn't ram into your dock causing damage to your boat, the dock or both. It also prevents the rough waters from dislodging your boat and having it drift away.
2) To Reduce Your Boat Maintenance Costs.
When you store your boat on a lift, it'll be easier to keep it maintained. If your boat sits in water for long periods of time, algae and other organisms in the water can build up on the bottom. Not only does this cause the need for extra cleaning, but it can cause maintenance issues, such as the need to repaint the bottom of your boat. By storing your boat on a lift, you can decrease maintenance and reduce the likelihood of it getting damaged from floating debris, which in turn reduces your repair costs.
3) To Prevent the Likelihood of Your Boat Sinking.
You'd be surprised at the number of boats that sink at the Lake of the Ozarks each year. Most boats that sink, do so at their dock. Whether it's a dead battery or a failed bilge pump, it doesn't take much for a boat to start taking on water and sinking. A boating accident is not required for a boat to sink. A Galva-Hoist boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks can give you the peace of mind that your boat is safe and secure at your dock.
