A customer of ours from Bennington, Nebraska was building a really cool dock for his property. This dock was being constructed of reinforced concrete and steel I-beams. The customer sent us the design of his dock.
His dock was designed to have two slips, one for a Sea-Doo 230 SP Jet boat and the other for two Sea-Doo Sparks. The design of the dock did not have any pilings available to mount the boat lifts. The customer wanted the lifts to be bolted to a post that was welded to the dock framework. When we received the customer’s plans, the dock construction was already underway.
After consultation with our engineers, a plan was agreed upon. The customer did not want top beams mounted above the deck height, so our beamless boat lifts were selected for this project. Our Beamless lifts have powerheads at all four corners whereas the industry standard is just two powerheads. Not only does this provide extra power and speed, by using four powerheads our Beamless lifts do not require any components to be installed below the waterline. These benefits greatly increase the durability of our Beamless lifts. Our engineers then sent the homeowner a slip layout showing how our Beamless lifts and his watercraft would fit in the dock.
There are some additional neat features that this project incorporated. We designed the PWC bunks so that one set was four inches higher than the other. This height difference is useful when you only want to use one of the jet skis. You can float off one jet ski while the other remains securely on its bunks. The Beamless boat lifts also use the GEM GR4A controls. In the automatic mode, all four powerheads operate until the built-in limit switch is engaged. However, these controls also allow you to independently use only a single powerhead. This way you can tip your watercraft on the lift to assist with drainage or for any other reason.
Here the customer is practicing using only a single powerhead at a time with the GR4A.
We all know how much fun it is to go boating. And it is great to dream big. If you need a boat lift at your dream house, IMM Quality Boat Lifts custom design service is here to make your dreams a reality. Happy Boating!
