Summer mooring questions

Recommended Posts

Capt-Rum

I plan on keeping our boat on the lift all summer. I'm wandering what everyone else does to protect their Bu's from all the elements it's exposed to. Boat care for example, water spots, sun fade, Cover protectors, Tower fade, sunpad fade. I believe with the new lift I can get it pretty far out of the water but will still have to deal with the occasional water splash. Also, our park will not allow covers on the boat lifts to it's totally exposed.

A good coat of wax and a waterline cover should do the trick.

Here's my Rankin with the sun skirts:

I leave my boats docked for the whole summer and have not had many problems, maybe a little sun fade on the rear, but thats about it. However, I do cover it, and are you saying they will not allow you to cover your boat at all while on a lift??

Is the sun skirt a Rankin option?

I have the standard boat cover, they don't allow lift canopy. I was thinking of having a Zipper sewn into the boat cover and add a skirt to the standard cover.

Yup! I love the extra coverage when mooring. Theyre attached with heavy duty zipers, so they can be removed while towing.

i'd use a cover any way, and risk getting yelled at.

We had our old boat (04 Supra) on a lift for 3 years and all I ever did was cover it and use a soft bristled brush every now and then. A good coat of wax and a normal cover and you should be fine. After 3 years we had no fading on the boat or cover (all dark colors). One thing to possibly do for the cover is spray it with scotchguard (prevents fading and helps water bead).
