Boat lift design suits heavier vessels Dock Blocks of North America (DBNA), a floating dock system specialist based out of Charleston, South Carolina has introduced the Boat Boost. Able to lift boats up to 12,000lbs (5,443kg), the innovation opens up a new market for the company as its previous range of boat lifts catered for boats up to 6,000lbs (2,721.5kg). The new technology took several years to develop. “We are very excited to introduce this new product because it allows us to reach customers who we have previously had to turn away because their boats were over our recommended weight,” said Doug Edwards, DBNA vice president sales and marketing. “We are also excited because Boat Boost allows us to work with several government contractors whose boats were previously out of our weight class.” To raise the boat, the system pumps air into the flotation tank to cause the dock to rise. The levers are rotated to the positions shown and the pump is turned on. The dock then begins to rise at a pace dependent largely on the weight of the boat being lifted. When the dock is sufficiently raised, the ® PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE pump is switched off and the left lever returned to the vertical position. When raised, the dock should sit evenly in the water. To lower the boat, the system releases the air in the flotation tank and the dock slowly sinks into the water. The pump is not needed. Both levers are rotated to the positions shown and air escapes through the open port on the back of the control cabinet as the dock sinks. When the dock is low enough, both levers should be returned to the vertical position. The boat can now be driven off the dock. Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina (CHRM) purchased a system in April last year capable of lifting up Nagu Hamn, Finland **** to ten vessels, each weighing up to 12,000lbs (5,443kg). The docks were installed in an unused area of the marina and there is a predicted return on investment of just three years. Lloyd Weston, CHRM sales manager, explained: “There was a spot where we could put the ten Dock Blocks that allowed us to generate more revenue than we otherwise would have had inside our marina. A lot of family oriented people come down with their kids and it gives them an option to keep their boat up out of the water. The boat stays dry and protected, and they can easily drive it in and out of the water when they need to.” E: dougedwards@dock-blocks.com BLUE STAR MARINA CERTIFICATION www.bluestarmarina.com Visit us at 19.-27.01. 2019 hall 9 · booth A13 www.marinaworld.com - January/February 2019 55
