Some boaters who try to install a boat lift run into issues with the sizing. Not the weight capacity, necessarily, but how tall their boat lift needs to be. Some areas may require you to pull a permit for installations over a certain size, or an HOA might not want too many boat lifts getting in the way of the view. Where do you start looking for a boat lift that fits their requirements? Boat lifts are, in general, not very tall. Generally, they’re around three or four feet (42 to 58 inches)—enough to keep your boat’s hull clear of the water but not enough to be obstructive, and they are short enough to keep from adding excessive weight. The height of a boat lift also needs to cover the hull draft and travel distance to ensure that your boat is supported and can be fully lifted out of the water. These are the specifications and benefits of the boat lifts available from HydroHoist.

If boaters aren’t careful, their watercraft can create a lot of pollution that impacts local waters. This is what prompted the Clean Boating Act (CBA), passed by Congress in 2008. Under the CBA, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required to identify discharges that happen as a result of the normal use of recreational water vessels where it’s possible to have reasonable and practicable management practices. The goal is to limit the amount of pollution in waters around the United States in the many forms it can take. HydroHoist knows more about the CBA and what you can do to play a part in keeping our waters clean.

Unassuming but effective: your boat lift is what keeps your boat safe and conveniently next to the water. It saves you from major repairs and maintenance costs on your boat while taking on the brunt of what the elements throw at it. You won’t be able to avoid maintenance on your boat lift altogether. However, you can extend its life and the time in between significant repairs by taking proper care of your boat lift. These five factors will contribute to the life of your boat lift, for better or worse.

Boating should be fun, easy, and safe. You can achieve all of those things with a boat lift. Boat lifts allow you to get onto the water faster and more easily than trailering or other methods of getting your boat on the water. It’s also safer for you, your boat, and your wallet to keep your boat on a lift. This cuts down on damage and maintenance costs, ensures stability while boarding, and keeps your boat secure next to the water whenever you’re ready to set out. The key is to choose the right lift for your boat.
