Boat Lifts are an ideal complement to a floating dock. Floating
boat lifts were originally designed to meet the needs of
boaters in the inland reservoirs of the south central and
south eastern United States, but they are a good choice
anywhere your shoreline is marked by deep water or water
that fluctuates more than a few feet during the course of
a boating season. While floating boat lifts are a natural
fit with floating docks, they may also be attached to standing
docks or seawalls. To use a floating boat lift, you must
generally have a minimum of four to five feet of water in
order to allow the tanks to submerge and the boat to enter
How they work
Floating boat lifts use a set of tanks, which raise the
boat when they are filled with air, and lower the boat when
the air is released. These lifts are attached to the dock,
and are typically used year round.
