Adding Value to Your Property

Adding Value To Your Property with this dual kayak lift

The home improvement craze that has swept the nation has shown many people how to increase the value of their property through simple projects. An increased sales price is not the only way a home improvement can add value to your property. Certain improvements allow new leisure activities that make life more fun.

A client of ours uses Airbnb and Vrbo to rent his waterfront property as a vacation home. He provides the use of a kayak and paddleboard to his renters as an added benefit for his property. His customers used to have to drag the bottom of the kayak and paddleboard against the seawall edge, scratching and damaging them. There was also the issue of safely getting into the kayak, or onto the paddleboard, from the top of the seawall. Our client wanted a safe and easy way for his vacationists to launch the kayak and paddleboard from the corner of his seawall. We suggested our dual kayak lift.

Anchoring The Dual Kayak Lift To Sea Wall

The engineer who designed the lift went to inspect the installation and got a photo with his creation. Our clients looked at the other options on the market and chose the IMM Quality Kayak Lift because they were amazed by its stability and rigidity. The competitor’s lifts all were rickety, uncomfortable and unsafe. They were also impressed with how simple the lift was to operate.

We have always taken pride in using the highest quality materials with the best engineered designs. In addition to our unmatched build quality, the ergonomics of our lifts are second to none. Other kayak launches use vertical ladders installed against the seawall with a small platform or no platform at all. This makes the ladder difficult to get on from the seawall, it is uncomfortable, and increases the likelihood of falling off backwards from the ladder. Our kayak lift has the ladder installed perpendicular to the seawall, the ladder is angled for easy climbing and it terminates at a large and stable platform. Along with the large grab rails, these features make the IMM Quality Kayak Lift extremely easy and safe to use.

Paddle Through These Six Benefits of Using a Kayak Lift

Paddle Through These Five Benefits Of Using A Kayak Lift or custom boat lifts

Living on the water has been a long-time dream of yours. Besides delivering daily spectacular views, your waterfront home gives you the chance to do more kayaking. Kayaking is a proven way to tone muscles, increase weight loss, and reduce stress. However, just like everything else in life, your success with kayaking depends on the level of effort that you put into the activity. The benefits of using a kayak lift help to ensure that kayaking remains a lifelong pursuit. Here are five benefits of employing a kayak lift when launching your craft from your permanent dock.

#1 Safe, Stable Launch

Remember your introduction to kayaking? Capsizing and splashing around in the water was just part of the experience. Today, you find your thrills gliding through the water without getting soaked. Employing a kayak lift at your dock or seawall allows you to safely enter your kayak without the risk of flipping it. The aluminum structure is securely attached to your dock. The lift cradles your kayak while you climb down the ladder and board your craft safely and securely using the lift’s ADA compliant handrail. This is a great option if you want to minimize flipping hazards for kayak photography trips or for winter kayaking.

#2 Built for Comfort

Most kayak lifts feature a ladder that runs straight up the wall, so you climb down with your back to the kayak. It’s hard to board in this position, which is why the unique design of the IMM Quality Boat Lifts kayak launch includes a ladder perpendicular to the dock or seawall. The ladder is also angled slightly, making it much easier to climb than a ladder that is completely vertical. An angled ladder ensures less risk of falling backward while boarding, and especially when returning home tired and shaky. At the foot of the conveniently perpendicular and angled ladder is a large platform with plenty of space to turn around and place all your things.

#3 Accommodates Many Sizes and Styles of Kayaks

You’ve become quite the expert about everything kayaking over the years. After much research, you know the kayak size and configuration that suits your lifestyle the best. Whether you need a kayak that can conquer choppy surf or one that you can easily maneuver in a calm canal, you can get a kayak lift to fit it. Kayak lifts have adjustable bunks that can support kayaks of varying widths. You’ll still be able to use the lift if you upgrade your kayak or have one of those specialty models such as a catamaran kayak. The kayak lifts that are offered by IMM Quality Boat Lifts support up to 1200 pounds of weight.

#4 Easy Re-Entry

Nothing’s worse than taking awesome pictures while kayaking and having your equipment ruined when you try to disembark from the craft. When you use kayak lifts, you can just glide right up to your dock and safely climb up the ladder without getting you or your gear wet.

#5 One-Person Operation

While kayaking can be a good way to socialize with like-minded boaters, sometimes you’ll want to hit the waterway solo. Kayak lifts support solo kayaking trips with easy-to-use functional features and safety mechanisms. You can load your kayak onto the lift, lower it into the water, and glide off to your next adventure without the help of another person who must steady the kayak or hand you gear. Using a kayak lift makes quick work of the bothersome part of kayaking, which is getting into and out of the craft. The hand crank for the manual winch of an IMM Quality kayak lift is installed at 36″, waist height, which makes operation even easier.

#6 Options for Powered Lift Operations

Employing a kayak lift leaves you with more time for paddling and exploring your waterway. Instead of trying to maintain your balance as you enter your kayak, you can simply climb into a stable kayak and lower yourself into the water with a manual or electric winch system. IMM Quality Boat Lifts offers an electric kayak lift that’s solar-powered.

Conclusion

After working hard and playing even harder for the majority of your life, you now want some of the creature comforts that make living more convenient and enjoyable. A kayak lift is one of those items that delivers a fun, hassle-free experience on the water.
