Fall Fishing at Lake of the Ozarks
October is arguably one of the most beautiful times of year at the Lake of the Ozarks. It's the peak of the season, where autumn leaves are turning in color. The scenery combined with generally pleasant daytime temperatures make it the perfect time for a fishing trip. During the month of October, you're likely to find bass in their usual fall pattern. Unlike September when fish are found in the back of the creeks, this month they'll be scattered throughout the lake with no predominant location. You will also find that forage fish, or shad, are spreading out and can be found just about everywhere.
As much as we wish it wasn't true, the winter season at the Lake of the Ozarks is quickly approaching. Along with the beginning of winter means that it's the end of boating season. Many people are starting to winterize their boats and get them ready for the cold weather to come. Today's blog from your favorite Lake of the Ozarks boat lift dealer discusses how you can store your boat in the water all year round!
Winter Boat Storage
In the past, people would remove their boats from the water at the end of each season. The frigid waters of the lake during the winter months could form ice that would be damaging to a boat left sitting in it. Innovations in the boating industry have led us to the ability to store our boats in the water all year round now. The Galva-Hoist line of floating boat lifts from Summerset Boat Lifts allows your boat to be stored in the water without the boat actually touching the water. Complete dry storage is available in a wet environment. In addition, de-icers can be installed on your dock to ensure the water around your lift doesn't form ice.
In-Water Boat Storage
Being able to store your boat in the water all year round definitely has its benefits. One of the biggest benefits is that when the water warms up, your boat is available for immediate use. You don't have to haul it to the Lake and launch it again. Another benefit is that you don't have to pay to store it somewhere else. If you don't have a garage or somewhere to store it on your property, a storage unit could be quite costly. No matter the brand of boat or dock you have, the Galva-Hoist at the Lake of the Ozarks offers great value to keep your boat in the water year round!
Whether you're in need of a new lift or you just want to make sure your lift is in proper working condition to protect your boat through the winter season, Summerset Boat Lifts has you covered! We pride ourselves in service, and that's what sets us apart in the industry. We want our customers to relax knowing their boat lift needs are being handed by professionals. Give us a call at 573-348-5073 for all your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift service needs!

No matter the size of your boat, Summerset Boat Lifts can lift it! We are proud to offer the Galva-Hoist line of floating boat lifts, which provide quality and value. From personal watercraft lifts to custom 38,000+ lb lifts, the Galva-Hoist has your Lake of the Ozarks boat lift needs covered. Keep reading to learn more about the lifts we can offer you at Summerset Boat Lifts!
Personal Watercraft Lifts
Our personal watercraft lifts come in 3 styles: side-mount, single front-mount and double front-mount. The side mount PWC lift is ideal for those looking to save space, as the footprint on the dock is only 5 1/2 feet instead of 11 feet. The flagship of our PWC line, the poly tank front-mount unit is quite capable of withstanding any water conditions. The single-tank by design will hold your watercraft higher out of the water than a double-tank would. The double is an extension of our popular single tank design.
4,000 & 6,000 LB Lifts
The 6,500 lb lift is an ideal capacity for almost every tritoon on the Lake of the Ozarks. the mechanism and structure of the lift are well-suited for the rough waters that our lake has to offer during the busy summer months. From a 24 foot deck boat to a 27 foot tritoon with a 300 hp outboard, this is the boat lift for your needs.
8,000 & 10,000 LB Lifts
Our 8,000 lb boat lifts are unique to the industry in that the structure has c-channel on the bottom of the tanks, which allows the weight of the boat to be distributed across many more points than the competition. The 10,000 lb lift utilizes the same structure and mechanism, giving you the opportunity to grow into a bigger boat utilizing the same lift later on.
12,000 - 17,000 LB Lifts
Our 12,000 lb lift is a heavy-duty 6-arm mechanism designed for the rough waters of the Lake of the Ozarks. Our 14,000 lb lift is our first 3-tank system, and builds on the foundation of our 12,000 lb lift. The 17,000 lb lift caps off the trio of 6-arm mechanisms available. It is perfectly capable of lifting many of the 34 to 35 foot day cruisers.
20,000 LB & Bigger Lifts
Suited for many 37-41 foot day cruisers, the 20,000 lb lift is an 8-arm mechanism that features four structures that create a rigid box to dissipate the weight of the boat over many points on the lift and dock. The 24,000 lb lift is available in an 8-arm or 10-arm mechanism. The four tank system offers a superb weight to width ratio, offering great stability for your boat. Larger lifts can be custom built just for you! Your exquisite taste in big boats demands the best in boat lifts.
