How to keep birds off your boat and dock.

Birds can be problematic when it comes to maintaining your boat, boat lift, dock, and your boat lift cover.

Signs you need to replace your boat lift canopy cover

Your boat lift canopy is the first line of defense for protecting your boat from the elements. Keeping it in good, clean condition is important in ensuring that your boat stays properly protected.

Benefits of owning a boat canopy.

Even when hurricane season is over, your boat still needs protection from mother nature, and the best way to protect it from the elements is with a boat canopy. To keep your watercraft protected year round, we suggest a heavy duty boat canopy as they offer the best, and most effortless boat protection. Below we’ve listed a few reasons why boat lift canopies are essential in keeping your boat protected as best as possible.

Things to consider when buying a boat lift canopy.

Tired of the hassle of having to cover and uncover your boat while it’s on a lift? In the market for a boat lift canopy? Boat lift canopies offer excellent year-round protection from harmful UV rays and other elements mother nature throws at you. Boat lift covers will also keep your boat looking new and pristine throughout the year while protecting your assets and helping to maintain its resale value.

Top reasons a custom boat cover is worth the investment.

High quality covers are essential when protecting your valuable boat. Off the shelf boat covers do provide some protection, but typically fall short in both fit, function and durability. Because of this, custom boat covers are ideal for overall effectiveness and ease of use. Below we’ve outlined some of the top reasons that people choose custom boat dock covers and why.

Kayak, SUP, And Canoe Protection

Much like boats, jet skis, skiffs and other motorized watercraft. Self-propelled watercraft like kayaks, SUP boards, and canoes need protection too. From harmful UV rays that can cause fading and cracks to inclement weather that can wreak havoc on kayaks, keeping your expensive self-propelled watercraft covered is important.

Why you need a fish cleaning station for your boat dock

Winter boat storage and maintenance tips

Keeping your boat covered year-round is a must let alone in the wintertime. People, especially in warmer climates don’t tend to put much thought into winter boat storage as temps rarely dip below freezing. Proper winter storage and winterization of your boat can help to ensure that come spring or summer it will be running as good as when you originally stored it.

How To Winterize A Boat

Unfortunately for die-hard boaters, Summer has come and gone and with fall upon us, you should start thinking about winterizing and protecting your boat. The process of winterizing your boat is known well to all boaters, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a dreaded chore year after year. While our custom boat dock covers will protect the outside of your boat and motor from mother nature’s cruel elements.
