Do You Need Boat Lift Services?

If your vessel is sitting in a Clearwater marina, you may be wondering if you need boat lift services. This construction helps to protect your watercraft like a garage protects your car.

New Construction

The benefits of obtaining boat lift services for new constructions are numerous. Here are just a few to help you if you are on the sea wall about this addition to your vessel’s Clearwater home.

  • Prevented Staining and Bubbling of Paint
  • Reduced Rust
  • Decreased Storm Damage

These benefits are due to the fact you are limiting the exposure to water, and are keeping it more secure in the housing unit.


It can be difficult to discern whether or not these structures need repair since some of it can be under water. Here is what you should be on the lookout for both above and below the water.

  • Warping: Regardless of the material, warping is a sign that you are in need of boat lift services.
  • Height Differential: If your Clearwater structure or vessel is lower than normal or uneven, this can be a sign of sinking or damage to underwater support beams.
