Spring Boat Lift Maintenance Checks

As boating season nears you may start preparing for your first time out on the lake this spring. Before you lower the boat for the first time this season, there are a few boat lift maintenance checks you'll want to perform on your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift. Ensuring your lift is ready for the first movement of the seasons can help prevent any damage or further damage to your lift. Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we've provided a list of things you should check as you gear up for boating season.

Inspect Lift for Damage

If your lift has visible damage, it's important to have that repaired as soon as possible. A broken brace or support arm could cause your lift to fail and your boat to end up damaged and in the water. If you notice a broken piece on your lift, it's best to stay away from the boat as it could fall at anytime and contact a boat lift maintenance company at the Lake of the Ozarks immediate.

Check for Clearance

The winter months mean lower lake levels. Ensure your lift has adequate clearance below your slip. Hitting the rough and rocky ground can cause damage to your lift. From jolting and knocking the bracing lose to a rock puncturing a tank, there are many potential dangers that lurk at the bottom of the lake for your boat lift. Another thing to consider is any other items that may have moved underneath the water. Ensure your lift is clear of any tree stump or other underwater obstacle that may have shifted locations throughout the winter months

Lubricate Moving Parts

The moving joints of your boat lift have been stationary for the past few months. With the freezing temps and mixed in warm days, the moving parts may have some extra friction. Before lowering your lift, lubricate the lift arms and joints to ensure a smooth transition through the stages of the lift can be achieved by these brackets.
