3 Tips for Attending an Upcoming Boat Show

Boat show season is officially here as we kick off the first one of the year at the Overland Park Boat Show this weekend! We're thrilled to be at this amazing show, offering the best boat lifts and boating accessories. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks can't wait to visit with you & your crew this weekend. We want to hear all about your boat and your boating needs!

1. Establish a Budget

Whether you've been dreaming about a new boat or you're after dock or boating accessories to complete your boating lifestyle, there are a ton of amazing products on the market to meet your needs. Having a budget in mind can help you reel in your expectations. Do a little research and know roughly how much you're going to be spending before attending a boat show. The great news about a boat show is there are many boat show specials offered throughout the show so you can snag those amazing products with a discount!


2. Get to Know the Vendors

There are a ton of vendors at every boat show. It's important to stop and talk with the vendors of the products you're considering purchasing. It can be helpful to visit the brands you are considering to ensure you know exactly what you are getting for your money. You can also get a feel if that business is the right fit for your boating needs when visiting with the various vendors at the show. 


3. Allow Plenty of Time

There are a ton of vendors at this year's show! With so much to see, allow plenty of time to walk around the show and stop to chat with a variety of vendors. Make sure you have the chance to not only look at everything you want to but also to process it. By taking time to process what you've seen, you'll end up remembering something you want to take a second look at. We also recommend taking notes about the different products you're considering. This comes in handy when you are narrowing down your boat or boating accessory selections!

3 Perks of Owning a De-Icer

The temperatures are LOW and it's the time of year when the lake can start freezing over, especially in shallow coves. If you aren't prepared with a de-icer at the Lake of the Ozarks, now is the time to get yours ordered. Our Lake of the Ozarks boat lift company knows how important it is to keep your dock, boat lift, and boat safe from ice damage this winter. Last year we experienced record ice damage. The ice forming around docks coupled with the winter drawdown of the dam caused extensive damage all around the area. Help prevent that damage when you purchase a Kasco De-Icer from Summerset Boat Lifts this winter!

1. Worry Less Knowing Your Property is Ice-Free

When you have a de-icer installed and running, you don't have to worry about ice forming against your dock. Whether you live at the Lake of the Ozarks full time or you have a vacation home on the lake, it's a huge benefit to know your dock is set up to avoid ice damage before the temps start dropping this winter. Worry less this off-season when your property is protected with a de-icer. 


2. Avoid Costly Dock and Lift Damage

Your dock is designed to move as the water moves. When ice forms around it, it cannot move. The inability to flex and move was the water moves around it causes the cables and structure of your dock to twist and potentially break. This is when extensive damage is caused. Avoid the cost of structural damage to your dock when you have a de-icer running in the water next to your dock. 


3. Stay Inside (and warm) this Winter

Many homeowners were on their docks in the freezing cold last winter trying to free the ice from around their docks, boats, and lifts. This is very dangerous! The risk of falling in the water is much greater when you are working and leaning over the edge of your dock, cutting away the ice. It's also miserable to be outside in the bitter cold temps. Stay warm inside your home this winter & let a de-icer protect your dock!

What are you waiting for? Now's the time to ensure your dock, boat lift, and boat are all protected this winter. Contact the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks to get your Kasco De-Icer purchased and installed. Our team will be on your dock installing your de-icer at the Lake of the Ozarks before you know it!

Options to Protect Your New Boat!

Whether you have your eye on a new boat and plan to make a purchase during the upcoming boat show season or you already have purchased a new vessel, a boat lift to fit your new boat is in order! Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here for all of your boat lift needs. From v-bottoms to catamarans to yachts, we can lift them all! We’re proud to offer the DuraTek product line of floating boat lifts. The DuraTek is extremely capable of withstanding the roughest waters at any lake. No matter what brand of boat or dock you have, the DuraTek Lift line provides great value and performance.

Popular Boat Lift Options:

Our 8,000 lb boat lifts have become very popular as the size of modern tritoons with different engine configurations have demanded a bit more capacity. 26 to 28’ bow riders remain a popular boating choice on Lake of the Ozarks as well.

The 12,000 lb lift is a Heavy-Duty 6-arm mechanism designed for the rough waters at Lake of the Ozarks. You can choose to back-in over the deepest dropping lift on the market, knowing you have peace of mind that you have prop-turning clearances.

The 17,000 lb lift caps off the trio of 6-arm mechanisms available. Capable of lifting many of the 34 and 35 foot day cruisers, the 17,000lb lift is again “best in class”. In the “go fast” line of boats, the 17,000lb lift handles many 42’s with triples.

The 20,000 lb lift is an 8-arm mechanism ideally suited for many 37 to 41 foot day cruisers. One of the only brands on the market to fit in a 12’ slip, they work just as nicely in wider slips too.

The 24,000 lb lift is available in 8-arm and 10-arm mechanisms. A four-tank system, this lift offers a superb weight to width ratio of stability for your boat! 

Our 38,000 lb lift is the best of the best! Built custom just for you! Your exquisite taste demands the best in boat lifts and Summerset Boat Lifts delivers!

What are you waiting for? Now's the right time to order your new boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks to help protect your vessel for years to come. Our team is well educated on the boat lift options and we can help you find the perfect fit for your new boat! Give us a call today to chat about your needs for a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Top 3 Reasons to Buy at a Boat Show

Boat show season is nearing & our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is getting excited! We love getting to visit with our customers at these shows and we know you guys enjoy it, too. Our team gets asked on occasion about the benefits of buying at a boat show & we're here to tell you why you should! Check out the benefits of buying at a boat show: 

Get a Great Deal!

Many vendors will have specials for the boat show. This is your chance to maximize and take advantage of the savings on the boating product you've been wishing for. Just in time for boating season, you'll be able to use the new item you purchase at the show in just a few short weeks!


See Product In Person

There's something special about seeing a product in person. You get the see and feel the item you're about the purchase and get a good idea of how it's going to benefit you and your boating needs. The off-water shows also give you the chance to see a lift from a different perspective -- out of the water and on dry land! You can really see what you're going to purchase at a boat show.


Browse Options

Time is money and the easier it is to visit with multiple vendors, the better. You can easily compare products and prices at a boat show. Instead of making phone call after phone call or stopping by showroom after showroom, you can take just a few steps and visit with another business about your boating needs.

It's Not Too Late To Schedule Your Winter Lift Inspection

Winter is officially here but the temps are still warm. That means it's not too late to get your lift inspected before the cold temps of winter creep in. Our mid-Missouri boat lift company is happy to schedule your boat lift inspection at the Lake of the Ozark. You may be wondering why it's important to have your lift looked at before the winter weather hits and we're going to answer that question below!

Make Repairs Before Cold Temps Hit

Your lift sees a lot of action in the summer months. From rough waters to going up and down on repeat as you use your boat, there is a lot of wear and tear that can take place during those busy months. It's important to have your lift inspected for any necessary repairs this time of year. Don't wait for parts failure to make any repairs -- that can be very costly if your lift fails to hoist your boat up this winter!


Ensure Your Lift Can Protect Boat All Winter

Our team will look over your lift to ensure all the parts are in good condition and functioning like it should. This can give you peace of mind that your lift is in good shape to protect your vessel all winter long! The last thing you want to worry about is whether or not your boat is still hoisted up in the air on your lift when it is freezing outside! 


Replace Moving Parts

The moving parts of your lift can wear down over time. The repetitive up and down motion can cause wear and tear on your lift. Our technicians will look at the condition of the bushings and advise if any replacement is needed to make sure your lift is ready to protect your boat all winter long. 

Schedule Your Boat Lift Maintenance Today!

Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we're proud to offer the best in service at the Lake of the Ozarks! Our team of experienced technicians will inspect your boat lift to make sure it's ready for the winter months ahead. Give us a call today to schedule your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift inspection!
