4 Benefits of Owning a Boat Lift

There are numerous advantages to owning a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks. From keeping your boat safe from the rough waters during the summer to storing it safely through the winter, boat lifts are an important addition to your boat dock at the Lake. Keep reading to learn about a few of the benefits of owning a boat lift:

1. Keeps Your Boat Bottom Clean.

When your boat sits in water for long periods of time, it begins to develop algae build up on the bottom. By raising your watercraft out of the water with the help of a Galva-Hoist boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can avoid this issue and reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to clean your boat.

2. Decreases Boat Maintenance Costs.

By storing your boat above the water line, you're not only decreasing the amount of cleaning needed, but also the amount of maintenance. Keeping your boat dry will help you avoid excess wear and tear on your boat, including the need for regular bottom painting. Storing your boat in the water can lead to issues in the boats structure and increase the chances of damage from floating debris, ice, etc.   

3. Reduces the Likelihood of Your Boat Sinking.

Of all the boats that sink, about 85% of those situations occur at the dock. Lifting your boat out of the water with a boat lift will reduce the likelihood of your boat sinking while sitting at your dock. Boats can sink due to a variety of reasons, especially in the spring time. Check out our blog titled, "5 Reasons Boats Often Sink in the Spring" to learn more. 

4. Makes It Easy to Launch Your Boat.

When you store your boat in the water on a lift, you reduce the launch time needed before you can enjoy the water. If you have to store your boat on land, on a trailer, you have to take it to a launch site and put it in the water each time before using it. By storing your watercraft on a boat lift, you are able to easily launch it and typically enjoy your boat more often. You'll be hitting the water in no time!
