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!

National Safe Boating Week Safety Tips!

It's officially National Safe Boating Week and our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to help spread awareness. Boating is one of the most fun summer activities at our beautiful lake. With that recreation comes some danger. Summerset Boat Lifts wants to help keep everyone safe and remind you of the safety precautions you should take any time you are boating!

What is National Safe Boating Week?

National Safe Boating Week will be held from May 22-28, 2021, reminding all boaters to brush up on boating safety skills and prepare for the boating season. This observance week is the annual kick-off of the Safe Boating Campaign, a global awareness effort that encourages boaters to make the most of their boating adventure by being responsible.


Top Boating Safety Tips:

Always Wear a Life Jacket

A life jacket can save a life. Many people think they don't need a life jacket because they are a good swimmer. Being a good swimmer doesn't help if you are involved in a boating accident. You may be disoriented or even worse, unconscious.


Be Aware of Surroundings

Just like on the highway, the traffic on the water can change in an instant. When driving a boat, you must be aware of all other boaters on the water, and other objects along the water. This can help you more safely navigate your way through boat traffic and in and out of busy boating areas. If you aren't comfortable in type of areas, consider staying to a less crowded part of the water.


Designate a Sober Captain

If you plan on drinking out on the water, make sure you have a designated captain to safely operate your vessel. Just like getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, driving a boat is a big responsibility and having your complete attention is vital for a safe boating experience.

Life Jacket Fit Test:

It's important that your life jacket fits properly. Check out some quick tips to ensure a safe fit. 

  • Make sure the life jacket is properly fastened
  • Check the weight and size of the life jacket to ensure it is a good fit for you
  • All straps, buckles, or zippers are secure
  • Hold arms straight up over your head

May is National Water Safety Month and we want to point out a few safety factors you should keep in mind, especially if you're traveling to watch fireworks on the water:

  • Always make sure you have enough life jackets on board for every passenger. 
  • Have a designated captain. 
  • Bring plenty of water to keep your crew properly hydrated. 
  • Know where the fire extinguisher is on board at all times. 
  • Take time navigating to and from firework displays. 
  • Refresh on the rules of the water before entering a crowded space, like a firework display. 

 

Now's the perfect time to start solidifying your Memorial Day Weekend plans with your crew. Be sure to share which fireworks display you're most excited to catch with your group. If your boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks experiences an issue this holiday weekend, give our team at Summerset Boat Lifts a call and we'll get it taken care of in a professional and timely manner!

Ways a Lift Can Protect Boat or PWC this Summer

Boating season has arrived at the Lake of the Ozarks! While we are all thrilled to get our boats and personal watercrafts out on the water, it is a good idea to keep them safe this summer. You spend a lot of money on your boat or PWC, and it is important to protect your investment to keep it in good condition for many years to come. If you are looking for the ultimate water experience, a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks is going to do just that! Read on for some tips about how a lift will save your watercraft this summer.


Quality and Safety of Watercraft

Storing you boat or PWC in the water 24/7 year-round can cause extensive damage and decrease the value of the vessel. This will lead to more maintenance and work for you in the long run. By having a lift for your watercraft, you will never have to worry about it coming untied to the dock or sinking at the dock. A lift will also improve the safety of your boarding experience. Spend more time enjoying your boat or PWC this summer by getting a lift that will keep your vessel out of the water and offer support and safety during the busy season.

 

Protect Your Watercraft from Rough Waters

A lift can keep your vessel safe all year long. The Lake of the Ozarks can experience some rough water conditions and keeping your boat or PWC from bouncing around on the rough water all summer long should be a top priority. Your lift will keep your vessel in place as waves splash up around it. This will ensure that your boat or PWC does not ram into your dock causing damage to your boat, PWC, or dock. Installing a lift will also prevent the rough waters from dislodging your watercraft and having it drift away.

 

Saves You Money

By storing your boat or PWC on a lift, it will be much easier to maintain. If your boat or PWC sits in the water for a long period of time, algae will build up and corrosion will occur. Not only does this cause the need for extra cleaning, but it can cause maintenance issues, such as needing to repaint the bottom of your watercraft. By storing your watercraft on a lift, you will decrease maintenance and reduce the likelihood of it getting damaged from floating debris, which in turn reduces your repair costs.


Protect Your Watercraft this Summer!

Watching your boat or PWC bounce around in the water is not a fun feeling. Make a lift an essential this summer by getting a Summerset Boat Lift installed today! We can help build a boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks that fits your boat and slip perfectly, no matter the size. From canoes to cruisers, we lift them all! Contact our team to learn more about the options we have available for your unique boat size and style.
