BOATLIFTS & PWC DOCKS EZ Dock now offers a simple drive-on, drive-off pontoon lift for pontoons up to 3,500lbs. It features assisted air lift and an underwater finger stiffener that allows for width adjustment to match boat beam widths. It can be used with standard EZ Dock modular polyethylene docks (as pictured) or with traditional floating or fixed docks. Contact EZ Dock in MO, USA on email: Solar charge makes for independent operation The charging system for the DC power required by ShoreStation’s FlexPower hydraulic lifts can now be maintained by a 20W solar panel. More than just a battery charger, the solar panel completely removes the need for an AC power circuit on the dock and thus creates a safer environment. This also eliminates the high, up-front costs of installing AC power with the required GFCI equipment and the inconvenience of running power all the way to the slip. There are also no annual safety inspections. Eric Sager, with the help of Ocean One Docks and Boat Lifts, recently installed a ShoreStation lift with solar panel at the end of a canal. “A more traditional AC powered lift would have cost US0 a year just for the needed electric meter,” he said. “The solar charger makes the lift totally independent from AC power and the cost savings are excellent.” With a self-contained solar panel, users can recharge the lift battery with a clean, free and renewable AirBerth wins export award Gold Coast-based AirBerth Boat Lifts won the export recognition award at the 2015 Club Marine Australian Marine Industry Export Awards organised by the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX). Australian owned and operated, AirBerth currently exports to 30 countries and offers nine standard boat lift models ranging from 2,300kg (5,000lb) to 15,000kg (33,000lb). Describing the award as a great accolade, marketing manager Justin Lye (above left) said that the achievement was shared by home market team members and international distributors alike. “Throughout the world we aim to deliver the highest quality boat lifts and match this with outstanding customer service. Our drive is to enhance the overall boating experience and lifestyle for our customers around the world,” he commented. The company is currently looking to further expand its international network and is primarily seeking distributors throughout Europe and North America. Contact AirBerth in QLD, Australia on email: power supply. The panel automatically charges the battery and protects it from draining or being over-charged. The power of 20W over the more traditional 10W models, ensures a quick recovery time so the lift is always ready for use.
