Dock On Blocks: The Alternative Boat Lift

Drive On Blocks are in essence a floating boat lift and a very different way of getting your watercraft out of the water than more traditional vertical and cantilever metal lifts.  These Drive On Blocks are a system of various interconnected high-density polyethylene blocks which are extremely durable.  They are virtually maintenance free and can easily be removed for cleaning or relocating the lift at any time. Each block is rated to hold 220lbs per full block and 180lbs per half [...]

This Is For The Birds! Best Bird Deterrents

Birds are a great part of lake living, they provide something to watch, get you closer to nature and if you watch close enough you might even see the different personalities of the waterfowl in your area.  That being said one inescapable part of birds is their constant droppings.  Not only are they off-putting, can carry dangerous bacteria but they are just plain gross!  They can also do a lot of damage to canopy covers and make your whole lift and [...]

Canopy Covers: Classic Vinyl VS High Tech Fabric

Canopy covers are an absolute must for anyone that is looking to avoid any sun damage or weathering of any portions of their boat.  These covers, when installed correctly, protect your boat's seating and electronics from the wind, rain and constant beating down of the sun.  Covers come in a few different styles depending on what type of lift you have.  Most lifts have either a pitched style canopy frame or a lower profile frame.  Finding out what brand and model [...]

Leveling Cantilever Lifts

Leveling cantilever lifts is done a little differently than leveling a traditional vertical freestanding lift.  Using aftermarket "Lift Leveling Legs" which attach to your lift at various points, you can set your lift in a position where it remains level regardless of the slope that is underneath the lift.  Declining slopes of lake bottoms are a difficult challenge for cantilever lifts to get around as they are designed more for very flat, hard bottoms with little change in water depth.  Cantilevers, [...]

Ice Fishing Tips, Tricks & Safety

Ice fishing is a tradition in many northern states of the United States.  With the robust amount of natural inland lakes and cold weather during the winters we often get many inches of ice on lakes allowing for all kinds of fisherman to enjoy the sport all year long.  People build little ice towns out on the ice, shanties with heaters and places to escape the wind while you fish through a small hole in the ice at your feet.  [...]

Spring Into Boating Season With LilliPad Marine Diving Boards

Diving boards are a favorite pastime of any good lake life experience.  Often it requires mounting old pool diving boards to the end of the dock or a raft that just never seems secure or safe enough.  All of us have heard stories of the board coming loose when someone is jumping up and down ready to dive, resulting in injury.  If not that then the board itself is of low quality, with those rough surfaces that will scratch up feet [...]

Don’t Fight The Tide: Life In A Tidal Basin

Tidal fluctuations are a part of life for anyone that lives near the ocean.  Whether you are directly on the beach or far inland along an inlet or basin, tidal fluctuations are something you will deal with every day.  With changes in sea level come changes to what type of lakefront equipment you can use in specific situations.  Each day the tide will hit a high point during the night and a low point during the day.  If your boat or [...]

Bridge The Gap With Roll-A-Ramp!!

Ramps have so many different uses in both lake living and life in general.  Many times stairs are just not an option due to the design constraints or because people need the ease of a ramp and can't be going up and down stairs.  The elderly and those in wheelchairs could see some of the greatest use out of this product and it could enhance their quality of life immensely. In this post we are highlighting what might be the best [...]

AlumiStair: Fight Back Against Coastal Erosion

With water levels near all time highs in the Great Lakes, the southern coasts of Lake Michigan have seen sever erosion to the dunes that line the shores of west Michigan due to a 17 inch increase over historic averages.  The water has pushed up against the dunes themselves, undercutting the support of the sand and causing small landslides.  The trees that grow on top of the dunes begin to have their roots exposed and eventually the tree falls to the [...]
