Tips for Safe Firework Viewing from the Water

The 4th of July weekend is officially here and at Lake of the Ozarks, that means boating and fireworks! Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks knows how exciting holiday weekends are for our fellow boaters. It means you get to enjoy all day out on the water doing what you love and then catching some spectacular fireworks displays around the area at night. There's nothing quite like viewing fireworks from the water. Check out a few of the awesome places you can catch these fantastic displays around the Lake of the Ozarks this holiday weekend and some quick safety tips to keep top of mind:

Photo Credit: Fun Lake

Firework Viewing Safety Tips:

  • Be aware of other boaters when navigating to and from crowded fireworks displays
  • Pack jackets or blankets on the boat to help keep the evening chill away
  • Bring snacks and drinks for your entire boatload -- you don't want anyone getting hungry or thirsty out on the water. It's important to stay hydrated, especially after a long day on the water. 
  • Keep a safe distance from the firework barges. Debris and other particles can fall from the sky when fireworks explode -- try to keep a safe distance away from the fireworks themselves. 
  • Designate a captain. It's a holiday weekend and we know it's fun to get out on the water and have a good time but it's vital that you have a designated captain on board to safely navigate your boat back to the dock.

Tips for Boating with Your Furry Friend

Summer is upon us which means it's boating season! It also means the temps are warm, which can make it 'ruff' on your furry friends who love to boat. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to share some tips to make boating more enjoyable for your pets. Check it out:

Have a pet life jacket at the ready. 

If your pet were to fall overboard, they may be disoriented. Just like humans, it's important that your pet wear a life jacket while on the boat. Many pet life jackets have a handle on the top to make it easy to assist your dog back out of the water if they do get it. 


Provide your own water for your pet. 

Bring plenty of fresh water for your pet to drink and stay well hydrated, especially if it's warm out. Discourage your dog from drinking the lake water as it may be filled with contaminants and other harmful properties for your pet. 


Keep temperature top of mind for your pet. 

Remember your dog is wearing a fur coat at all times. If you are warm in your swimsuit, they are even warmer in their fur. Be conscious of your pet and how they are feeling in the heat. You want your pet to enjoy themselves on the boat and not cause them to become ill due to heat. If the temps are relatively warm, it's encouraged to leave your dogs at home. 


Have a plan for a shaded spot on board. 

Laying down in the shade can help your dog cool off. Make sure there is enough shade on your vessel for your dog to keep out of the direct sun. This can also help prevent your dog from getting sunburnt if they are in a shaded spot. 


Make a cozy spot for your dog to be on the boat. 

Bring your dog's favorite blanket or dog bed to make sure they have a soft and cozy spot to curl up during the boat ride. This can help them feel more secure if they have an item with a familiar scent on it, as well. 

Don't let your furry family members be left at home when you can make boating more comfortable for them during the warmer months of the year. If it's too hot or you'll be away from home for too long, it is advised to leave your pets but if you're out for a shorter cruise or out on a cooler summer day, your pet would love to ride along! The best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to make boating season fun for your entire family, furry friends included! If your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks is in need of some work, trust the experienced crew at Summerset Boat Lifts! Give us a call today!

Lift Options to Protect Your New Boat

You finally snagged that new boat you've had your eye on! Congratulations! Now's the time to ensure it's protected like it should be with a new boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here at Summerset Boat Lifts, we pride ourselves on designing and building high quality lifts that will lift your dreams for years to come. Check out some of the common lift options we have available:

P-65

The 6,500 lb lift is an ideal capacity for almost every tritoon on Lake of the Ozarks. The mechanism and structure of the lift are well suited for the rough waters that our lake has to offer. From a 24 foot deck boat to a 27 foot tritoon with a 300hp outboard, give serious consideration to our 6,500lb boat lift!

Capacity: 6,500 lbs.


P-80

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.

Capacity: 8,000 lbs.


P-100

The 10,000 lb boat lift utilizes the same structure and mechanism as the 8,000, making this lift a very good price point. More bang for your buck, and the opportunity to grow into a bigger boat utilizing the same lift later on.

Capacity: 10,000 lbs.


P-120

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.

Capacity: 12,000 lbs.

P-140

The 14,000 lb lift is built on the foundation of the 12,000… by simply increasing the length of tank capacity rises to handle 32 to 34’ boats and can also be the correct choice to handle the extra weight of mechanism, structure and walkways in a wide-well situation.

Capacity: 14,000 lbs.


P-170

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.

Capacity: 17,000 lbs.


P-200

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.

Capacity: 20,000 lbs


P-240

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! Don’t float your boat! Put it on a new lift from Summerset Boat Lifts today!

Capacity: 24,000 lbs.


P-380

Built custom just for you! Your exquisite taste demands the best in boat lifts, visit us at Summerset Boat Lifts!! We are well-known for Lifting Your Dreams… From Canoes to Cruisers!

Capacity: 38,000 lbs.

We have a ton of Lake of the Ozarks boat lift options available and we couldn't be more excited to hear about your new boat in order to find the right fit for your investment. Contact our experienced team at the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks and we'll be sure to hook you up with the right lift for your new boat!
