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 [...]

Seasonal Boat Lift Care The air is getting cooler and the days shorter and as the leaves change and drift to the ground we accept that the season is drawing to a close.  As much as we may wish for just one more, sunny weekend to get out on the water, the turning earth has other plans and those nice fall weekends are disappearing fast.  Winter will be here soon and there are a few housekeeping chores to take care of [...]

Freestanding Canopy Kits

LakeShore Having a canopy frame and cover on your lift can be a very nice feature. This keeps your watercraft dry and makes the overall boating experience that much better.

E-Z Lace Supreme for After Market Canopies

The 2013 boating season brings with it some changes that are bound to make your life on the water a bit easier.  In this article we will focus on one specific change in the way some aftermarket canopies are attached to your boat lift canopy frame.  For a while now these canopies have used rubber grommets and o-rings, sewn into the canopy itself, to provide anchorage for the springs, bungees, or strapping that ultimately holds the material to the frame.  However, [...]
