What to Do When Your Boat Slip is Too Big for Your Current Boat

When it comes to Lake of the Ozarks Boat Lifts, we get some frequently asked questions.  Here is a recent question we received from a client.

Q.  I’ve got a boat slip that is way too big for my current boat. How can I utilize the space I have and still have access to my boat?

A.  If you’ve got a 16’ wide boat slip and your pleasure boat is only 8 ½’ wide, you may  need to put considerable thought into how your boat lift will accommodate your needs. By offsetting a boat in the slip to one side or the other, you gain perfect access to one side of the boat, but lose total access to the other. That is where a walkway becomes a great feature to invest in. The walkway can be built to the length of your boat which regains you great access to that side. With guide posts to limit your travel and a walkway next to your boat, you’ve created a wet-storage situation where you can maintain and cover your boat with ease!

From our first few lifts in 1982, to the many new and pre-owned lifts we now sell and service each year, Summerset Boat Lifts has been there "Lifting your Dreams from canoes to cruisers"!
