We Perform Boatlift Inspections in Myrtle Beach and Surrounding Coastal Areas in South Carolina & North Carolina

It’s important to have your boat lift inspected at least once per year, preferably during the off-season. Rollers, winches, cables and other moving parts should be inspected yearly, lubricated and replaced as needed. This is especially true of the cable and winch system on Cantilever boat lifts because the cable on this type of boat lift generally needs to be replaced about every 3 years or so. Not keeping an eye on this cable can result in the cable breaking and dropping your boat–which can damage both your lift and your boat.

Of course, a boat lift inspection includes more than just checking the cable and winch system. 

Here’s A More Detailed List Of What We Check During A Boat Lift Inspection

  • Inspect cable for fraying, burrs, corrosion and signs of impending breakage

  • Inspect around the winch and housing for debris and animal nests (squirrels, wasps and birds are common nesters in the winch housing)

  • Inspect cable anchors to ensure all anchors are secure

  • Inspect thimbles, clamps, nuts and bolts for wear and tear, and schedule for replacement as needed

  • Check all floats for leaks or damage

  • Check that all feet are firmly attached to prevent them from falling off when the lift is placed back in the water or moved

  • Inspect the gear plate assembly for proper lubrication–the gear plate assembly should be greased with heavy-duty marine grease at least a few times per year

  • Check that the threads on the wheel of the wheel drive shaft are properly lubricated

  • Inspect the bunks to ensure proper alignment with boat hull, and that the bolts holding the bunks are tight and secure

  • Check the carpeting in the bunks for wear and tear, as well as the wood or material underneath the carpet
