Happy early Summer everyone!
Well, at least it is supposed to be summer but the weather around these parts has been something else. There have been days when I thought I should be getting ready to go into hibernation! Enough of that, let’s bring on the good weather!
I would like to thank all of our customers who waited so patiently for us to get their docks and lifts installed this spring. We have completed this large task and the Dock Crew is starting to work on other projects.
By the way, I want you all to know, I have become a local radio celebrity! I am very excited about this! You can hear me multiple times during the week by tuning in to WAQE (97.7FM), WJMC (96.1FM) and WKFX (99.1FM).
We’ve had some customers who have been having problems with the electric winches on their boat lifts this spring. Our crew checked it out and determined that the customer was lowering the lift too low into the water, allowing the cable to become completely unwound. When they attempted to wind it back up, it coiled up the wrong way. This usually resulted in a broken gearbox. To prevent this from happening, we recommend that our customers should determine the lowest they need to lower the lift. They should then mark the cable with some paint or dark marker at the point right below the winch box where they can see it when operating.
Remember, we have a wide assortment of water toys available in the store. There are wake boards, tubes, kayaks, paddle boards, pedal boats and sand bar anchors. Stop in and see for yourself.
Please be safe out on the water and, as the sun starts to heat up, remember to apply the sunscreen!
I have to get going as some people around here have a rather large honey-do list for me!
