Your boat may belong in the water for some boating fun, but it does not belong in the water when it is not being used. Boats are not meant to sit in the water 24/7, it can cause damage and decrease their value. Nobody wants to deal with more maintenance on their boat than needed.
Boat lifts exist for a good reason - more boating long term! They keep your boat out of the water, offer support, and minimize negative effects of the weather and outdoor elements.
No matter what your boat hull is made of there is always a chance of it collecting build-up from sitting in the water. Aluminum parts and the gelcoat on your boat may stain easily and also reflect water damage. By using a boat lift, you kick these negative effects to the side. A boat lift will lift your boat up out of the water to prevent unnecessary water damage.
Leaving your boat tied to a dock or buoy has its risks. It puts your boat in a position to get damage on the inside or outside. Keep the rainstorms, high winds, and water out of your boat and put it on a lift to ensure you keep your boat in the best condition as possible.
A boat lift provides a secure storage spot and a place for damage protection for your boat. Also add a canopy for the ultimate protection from the sun.
