In the wake of the recent severe storms here in Minnesota, we are reminded about how important it is to choose the right dock and lift system for your home or cabin. So many families are reeling this week thinking about having to replace their entire dock and lift system. ShoreMaster prides itself on premium quality docks and lifts and that can stand up to some of the harshest conditions Mother Nature throws at the lakes. Our design team takes severe storms like these into consideration in order to provide you a dock and lift system that truly can last a lifetime.
For instance, we don’t screw or permanently attach our decking panels to our dock frames like many other manufacturers. Not only is this a benefit for the replacement of panels or for future upgrades, but it’s also a benefit in strong, damaging winds. The clips that hold our panels in place will release long before your dock frames become a tangled roller coaster mess. With strong winds you might have to fish a panel or two out of the lake, or purchase a couple replacement panels, but that’s a heck of a lot easier than replacing the entire frame system.
Our lifts are built to hold up too. ShoreMaster’s all aluminum welded frame and premium components – along with our dome style canopy – protect your watercraft investment in even the harshest conditions. After all, that’s what you purchased the boat lift to do, isn’t it. The bolts that hold screw-together boat lifts together can wear out over time, especially with strong wind and waves, and give out when you need the protection the most. Welded frames offer simple, durable stability (plus they are easier and faster to install).
These are just a few of the design features that ShoreMaster implements to provide our customers the very best in waterfront equipment. These elements, partnered with our dealer’s top of the industry customer service, mean that we keep you on the water all summer long.
If you were affected by the recent storm damage in Minnesota – or are just looking for a premium dock and lift system – find a local ShoreMaster dealer near you. They will be able to assist you with service work, replacement parts, a new system or any other needs you might have for your waterfront.
