Spring De-Winterization is Near

Spring is almost here and now's the time to start planning your de-winterization process. From your boat to your dock, there are a few steps that you should take as you prepare for boating season. Not only is it important to prepare your boat for the season, you'll want to ensure your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift and dock are in proper working order, as well. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to help as you prepare to de-winterize your summer toys. Check out some tips below:

Replace Fluids in Boat

In the fall we winterize, in the spring we de-winterize. Now's the time to schedule your de-winterization. This is when all the anti-freeze fluids can be flushed out of your boat and motor, and be replaced with proper fluids for a season full of family, fun, and new boating memories!

Visually Check Over Boat Lift

Before lowering your lift down for the first time, ensure all lift arms and joints look as they should. If there is visible damage, contact our boat lift maintenance department immediately! Our team can help repair your lift and hopefully get you squared away before causing any further damage to your vessel.

Ensure No Damage to Dock

Look at and around your dock the first time you visit your boating area for the season. Ensure no physical damage is visible. Don't forget to check the water level. Low winter levels can leave your dock sitting on dry land, which can cause various problems to the tubes holding up your dock and potentially your lift if it gets lowered. Be aware of this potential damage and do what you can to be proactive.

Deep Clean Your Dock and Boat

Winter grime can leave your dock and water toys looking dull. Liven them up with a fresh clean look! Take some time to clean up your dock and boat to prepare for another awesome season on the water at the Lake of the Ozarks!
