Safety & Maintenance of your PWC Lift

You may have just purchased a new PWC lift or you may have a lift that has been reliable to you for many years. Either way, it’s important to be sure that your PWC lift is in good working order. As any seasoned boater knows, safety is the most important part of having fun on the water.

Dock-Mounted PWC Lifts and Piling Mounted PWC Lifts

Dock-mounted PWC lifts typically mount either to a dock or a post and use a winch and cable system to lift the PWC. Several components should be thoroughly checked for wear.

Drive-On PWC Dock

Drive-on floating PWC docks require very little maintenance but still need to be inspected at the beginning of each season. Look for the following:

Lake Lifts

Freestanding aluminum lake PWC lifts have four feet that rest at the bottom of the lake and usually use a large wheel for cranking the lift. In very cold areas these PWC lifts are often removed during the ice season and then put back when the weather warms up.

Performing this basic inspection and maintenance at the beginning of the season ensures the safety and longevity of your PWC lift. For any questions or help preparing your PWC lift for the season, call Boat Lift Warehouse at 877-468-5438.
