Water Safety at the Lake of the Ozarks

May is National Water Safety Month and with the largest recreational lake in the state in our backyard, it's important to keep water safety top of mind, especially as we get ready to kick off the busy boating and swimming season. As the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we know how vital it is to keep you and your family safe around the water and that's why we're providing some tips to keep top of mind this summer. 

Top Water Safety Tips:

1. Always wear a lifejacket or have a floatation device handy

2. Do not run on the boat, dock, or bank next to the water

3. Know what is below the surface when jumping or diving

4. Never swim alone

5. Avoid swimming when water is rough

6. Only swim in open water areas (not in a slip or next to a dock)

7. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated

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.

Easily Store Your PWC on a Lift

PWCs are a fun way to enjoy the lake this summer! It's important to protect your investment with the right PWC lift at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here at the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we have a variety of PWC lifts available. Check out our various options:

SINGLE PLACE

The flagship of our PWC line, the poly tank front-mount unit is quite capable of withstanding any water conditions. The design of the frame gives a smooth modern look and superior strength. The flotation tanks are some of the largest in the industry and this means you WILL have dry feet when you want to maintain or cover your craft, GUARANTEED.

Capacity: 1,200 lbs.


DOUBLE PLACE

The Double-Place Personal Water Craft lift is an extension of our popular single place design. For considerable price saving over purchasing two single’s, the double is available in several configurations. The width of the frame can be fit to most popular slip widths including 10, 11, 12 & 14’. The frame is also ideal for the discriminating boater that wants to fully deck the unit.

Capacity: 2,200 lbs.


PERMAPORT

The PermaPort floating platform is an alternative in the PWC storage market. The PermaPort has a self-centering entry roller for easy drive-on and five additional keel rollers to make the push off effortless. A key feature is the expanded poly foam fill that gives positive floatation should the shell become compromised – other brands are simply “filled with air” and will “fill with water” when punctured… The front-mount bracket has been upgraded to be Lake of the Ozarks friendly as well.


SIDEMOUNT

The side-mount mechanical lift is available for the homeowner with property line issues. It’s a space-saver in that the footprint on the dock is only 5 1/2 feet instead of 11 feet.

Capacity: 920 lbs.

Stop trailering your PWC back and forth for the weekend and easily store your vessel on your dock with a new PWC lift at the Lake of the Ozarks. Contact Summerset Boat Lifts today to learn about your options and get your lift ordered before the heat of summer is here!

Boat Lift & Dock Maintenance Checks Before Boating Season

The recent weather has taken a toll on many docks and boat lifts in the past several days. From below freezing temps last week to the unseasonably warm temps this week, a lot of damage is found around waterfront properties at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you have a dock and boat lift at the Lake of the Ozarks, consider going through these maintenance checks before you use your dock this spring. 

Inspect Dock for Damage

The frozen water combined with the lowering lake level has created a dangerous combination for docks across the Lake of the Ozarks. If you can visibly see damage, it's important to recruit the help of a professional to ensure your dock is fixed property and to code. Even if there is no physical damage visible to the eye, it's a good idea to have your dock checked out by a professional to ensure no unseen structural damage has occurred. 


Conduct a Lift Maintenance Check

Your boat lift was put through the ringer with the recent temperature drop and ice quickly forming across the Lake of the Ozarks. Ice forming against your lift can quickly cause damage to the metal bracing that supports your lift. It's important to schedule a boat lift maintenance check at the Lake of the Ozarks before you move your lift up or down this spring. 


Schedule Electrical Inspection of Dock

With docks being pulled away from the shore and many cat walks being stretched to the max, the electrical hook ups and lines to your dock have likely been compromised. Dock electrical is not something to leave to chance. Ensure your dock electric system is inspected before you start using your dock this season. 


Even a week later, the ice is still THICK and causing damage to your dock and lift!

We recommend having your property looked at before you start using your dock and lift this boating season. Our boat lift maintenance crew has already been called out to conduct checks on lifts so be sure to call now to get on the books before the warmth of boating season is here! Contact Summerset Boat Lifts at 573-348-5073 today!

Perks of Buying at a Boat Show

Boat show season is here and our 2nd show of the year well be here before we know it! Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks is busy preparing for the St. Charles Boat Show from March 4th - March 7th. If you're planning to attend the boat show, we've included some of the perks of buying during a boat show! Check them out: 

Save Big on Boat Show Deals

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 It Before You Buy

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.


Check Out Multiple Options in One Convenient Location

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.

Reasons to Invest in a Dock De-Icer

The bitter cold is about to hit mid-Missouri and if you haven't already, now's the time to consider protecting your dock, boat, and lift from the potential of damaging ice formation. Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks knows how much damage ice can cause and we don't want to see that happen to your property! A de-icer rotates warmer water down deep to the surface to prevent ice from forming near your dock. Keeping your dock, lift, and boat from potential damage of ice -- it's a great investment for those cold Missouri winters! Learn why you should purchase your Kasco De-Icer from Summerset Boat Lifts today!

Prevent Damage

Ice forming against your dock can cause damage in a number of ways.  From compromising the structure of your dock to puncturing the tubs that keep it afloat, it's best if ice does not form against your dock at all. Help prevent this kind of ice damage when you invest in a de-icer to keep the warm water rotating from the bottom of the lake up and around your dock. 


Keep Property in Good Condition

Ice does not always cause permanent damage right away but it can wear down the integrity of your property. Having ice form against your dock year after year can cause it to need costly repairs sooner than it would require otherwise. Over time, it can also cause hard to notice issues that can be detrimental to the structure of your property!


Preserve the Value of Property

Your dock, lift, and boat are all big investments for your summer fun. Help increase the longevity of each investment when you prevent ice from forming against them in the winter months. It really is an investment to help keep your property nicer, for longer so you can enjoy your lake toys for years to come!

What are you waiting for? A round of cold weather is going to hit our area soon and there is no better time to protect your summer accessories than with a de-icer at the Lake of the Ozarks! Give Summerset Boat Lifts a call today to order yours!
