Advantages of a Drive-On Floating Boat Lift

Traditional types of boat lifts often involve complex maneuvering and potentially risky boat trailer backing. Premium drive-on floating lifts like HarborHoist H2 completely eliminate this hassle. 

It also offers the following advantages: 

  • Effortless lifting and launching: Seamlessly load and launch your boat without manual maneuvering or winching. Simply drive your watercraft onto the platform, and the lift will take care of the rest. 
  • Space-saving design: Boat floater lifts allow you to position the hoist anywhere in the water, maximizing dock space and avoiding crowded marinas. 
  • Versatility: Drive-on floating boat lifts can adapt to various water levels, making it ideal for tidal zones and areas with fluctuating conditions.  

Drive-on floating boat lifts significantly minimize the rituals associated with docking and launching vessels, enabling boaters to spend more time on the water and less time fiddling around the dock.

Installation and Maintenance

At HydroHoist, we take pride in bringing the most advanced, easiest-to-use, and lowest-maintenance boat lift systems to the market. For reference, the Light Series HarborHoist takes 8 to 12 hours to assemble on average. 

But while the lightweight design and simple operation of the HarborHoist H2 make it relatively simple to install, lifts must be installed by an approved HydroHoist installer. Failure to comply will void its warranty and could cause injury to the user and damage to the lift and vessel. 

Below are some pre-installation considerations:

  • Lift assembly location (remote or onsite)
  • Transport method from assembly to launch site
  • Equipment to safely build, transport, and launch the lift
  • Contact points between bunks and the hull (consider strakes and other hull protrusions)

If you plan to assemble and build remotely, take note of the lift’s minimum width. Some states may require special permits and escorts for transportation. As such, remotely building pre-sub assemblies and completing the final assembly at the launch site might be logistically simpler. 

Here are a few other considerations:

  • Does the launch site allow commercial work?
  • Do you need a permit to work and launch at the ramp or dock?
  • How much of the lift can be pre-assembled and transported safely?
  • Does the final assembly location have the equipment to hoist and launch the lift?
  • Is there a level ground for final assembly, or will some assembly occur in the water?

Once you successfully assemble and install your floating boat lift, observing proper maintenance practices is crucial to ensuring performance and reliability. 

Here are some tips to maximize its benefits:

  • Conduct periodic inspections: Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning, lubrication, and inspection to ensure the boat lift parts are in optimal condition. 
  • Keep your dock and surrounding area clean and clear: This ensures an unobstructed pathway for maneuvering boats onto and off the lift. Debris, clutter, or obstacles can impede the lift’s smooth operation.  
  • Note seasonal considerations: Take proactive measures based on seasonal factors. For instance, proper winterization helps prevent damage from freezing temperatures and potential ice accumulation.
