Top 3 Reasons to Invest in a De-Icer

The winter weather will be here before long and our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to help keep your dock protected this off season. We are proud to offer the Kasco De-Icer to help prevent ice from forming against your dock this winter. Don't be caught off-guard like last year -- prepare for the winter weather NOW!

1. Worry Less this Winter

If you have a de-icer you don't have to worry about the water freezing by your dock. The de-icer will keep the water moving, therefore, preventing the ice from becoming solid. This can also help prevent you from having to go down to your dock in the freezing temperatures and checking on your dock all the time. When it's that cold outside you should be able to stay in the warmth of your home.


2. Protect Your Investment

You spend a lot of money on your water toys - protect what you've worked so hard for with a de-icer. This can help protect your dock, boat, and lift by lowering the chance of ice to form and causing damage to your property.


3. Save on Costly Repairs

Ice can cause dock, lift, and/or boat damage in a number of ways. If your dock has ice all around it, it is unable to move like it naturally does. This can actually cause your dock lines to snap due to excessive tension. Your dock floats can also be damaged from ice forming against or hitting the tubs. Ice can cause your boat lift to malfunction and in some cases leave your boat to fall into the water.

How Our De-Icer Works:

Kasco De-Icers are known throughout the world for their quality, durability, and effectiveness. The Kasco D-Series De-Icer became a staple of the industry by tackling some fiercely challenging applications. The de-icer works by moving large volumes of warm, bottom water to the surface. This eliminates and prevents ice formation around boats, docks, pilings, bulk heads or any other property you need to be protected from damaging ice formation. The water flow eliminates damaging ice expansion and ice jacking, as well as provides excellent aeration for winter months. The unique design of this product provides superior flow and excellent energy efficiency to solve your de-icing needs in a cost effective manner. By using a Kasco De-Icer, you are ensuring your property is protected from the harsh winter conditions.

Summerset Boat Lifts is here for all of your boat lift and accessories needs! If you're interested in getting a de-icer at the Lake of the Ozarks, contact the best boat lift company in Osage Beach, MO today!

Top 3 Reasons to Schedule a Boat Lift Inspection BEFORE Winter

While winter is officially about a month away, it's time to make sure your dock, boat, and boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks are prepared for the cold months ahead. Most boat owners know about winterizing their boat and PWC's, but it's just as important for owners with lifts to schedule a boat lift inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks before the weather turns. Learn why below:

1. Protect Boat All Winter Long

Ensuring your lift is secure and ready for the winter months ahead is key. Having one less thing to worry about this winter brings great relief! If your lift has just been inspected and all the bracing and brackets are in good working order, you can trust your lift to keep your boat hoisted out of the water and to keep it protected all winter long!


2. Avoid Part Failure

Instead of waiting until an important part of your lift fails, consider having a regular maintenance check performed. This can help give you an idea of something that may need to be replaced in the near future before it actually breaks. A great deal of damage can be caused to your lift, boat, and dock if a part of your lift fails. Help minimize damage with an inspection this fall. 


3. Repair Broken Part 

The winter temps and weather will be here before we know it. It's best to have your lift looked at and fixed before the frigid temps creep in. Winter weather brings ice and snow, which are all heavy and put extra strain on your entire dock and bracing systems. It's very important to have your lift in good working order before the potential extra burden of winter weather. 



Now's the time to get your boat lift inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks scheduled! As the best boat lift company in the Midwest, we pride ourselves on providing the best product and service for our customers. Keep your product in good working condition when you schedule your boat lift maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks!

Boat Storage Options for the Winter

If you haven't already, you're likely making plans to get your boat winterized for the season. Along with that comes the decision on how to store your boat during the winter months. There are advantages of each type of storage option available and our Lake of the Ozarks boat lift company is here to cover them!

Store on Boat Lift

One of the most popular storage methods is to leave your boat up on your boat lift for the winter months. This storage solution is the most cost-effective way to store your boat since you already own your lift. It also means you don't have to take extra time to make arrangements for your boat storage solution. Another perk is that come spring, you'll be able to get back on the water faster!


Store on Trailer

Some boat owners have a trailer and choose to store their boat on land. You may have a storage building or place for your trailer on your property, which would be a free storage solution for your boat. There are also storage facilities that are available for storing your trailered boat. Many storage facilities in the area offer covered storage options to help protect your boat and they have great security options, as well. 


Store at Marina

Many marinas around the Lake of the Ozarks offer both in-water and on-land storage options for your boat. If you're having your boat serviced in the off-season, the marina that is performing the service could be a convenient place to store your boat this winter. 

As you make your final preparations to winterize your boat, dock, and lift for the year, it's important to schedule your boat lift maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks to ensure your lift is ready for the cold months ahead. This is especially important if you are storing your boat on your lift this off-season. Give the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks a call today! We'll make sure your lift is in good shape and ready to keep your boat protected for the winter ahead!
