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!

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.

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!
