Length of time to build a new boat?

Recommended Posts

Now that is one good looking boat!!!

Are you keeping in a slip and that is the reason for the bottom paint?  One thing for sure is get good fender covers that color of gel will show every little scratch especially fender abrasions.

We live on the water so its staying right in our back yard.

We bought a few fenders, we have mooring whips to be put up but we are currently debating a lift.

So we want to find out all of the details about that before we put up the whips.

Get a lift, get a lift, get a lift.   Boat lifts eliminate the need for bottom cleaning , paint repair , outdrive cleaning, which makes them superior to keeping a boat in a slip. When considering this factor, don’t forget that scum build up on the bottom of a boat cuts top-end speed by one or two MPH, it adds toxins into the environment, and it costs money to maintain the bottom every season. Boat lifts are also incredibly convenient; walk down the dock, press a button, and your boat lowers into the water.  And, on top of all this, you never have to worry about a dock line chaffing against the hull, the boat banging against a piling, or an ugly waterline stain etching its way into your boat’s gel coat.

Can you leave your boat on a lift through the winter or is that not recommended?
