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!
