BOATLIFTS & PWC DOCKS Rise and fall at Charlestown Two Nel-Sun float lifts, manufactured by Golden Boat Lifts, were recently sent to Charlestown Marina in Charlestown, Massachusetts, where they are enhancing a newly renovated facility. When Chuck and Ann Lagasse bought the marina in October 2014, it was in need of total refurbishment. Now it is ready for boaters, and offers 250 slips, with a further 110 slips scheduled to complete by 2016. The lifts were the perfect choice for the marina as it has a water level variation of up to ten feet. Nel-Sun float lifts are specifically designed to handle extreme tidal fluctuation and can also be moved and reconfigured within the marina. They rise and fall with the tide and, in most cases, no pilings are required. Lifts give slip owners complete access to their boats as each unit is set within a wrap-around floating dock. The lifts are powered by the Golden Sea-Drive, a drive exclusive to Golden Boat Lifts, that can be solar powered if there is a shortage of available power at the marina. Chuck Lagasse plans to invest in more floating lifts in the future. At Charlestown, they have added slip space and thus increased revenue when tidal fluctuations made standard slips impossible.
