Boat Lift Removal

6 posts in this topic

I am on the East end. Who would you recommend and how much should I expect to pay...would like to have the boat lift lifted out and stored as our shore line is pretty steep. Thanks in advance for your help.

Go to lakevermilion(dot)com and look for Lakeshore Services, there should be a couple of barge services listed there.

Or eat more Wheaties.

I have found that it is pretty easy to do yourself using a cable and comealong. I attach the cable ends to the 2 legs nearest shore, and then pull in the center, being careful not to get hung up & bend the legs. The closer you pull to the bottom the better.

Otherwise there are dock services in the area that will do it for you.

I have used Eagle Docks for the last 14 years. They just sold the business to a new owner and I am hopeful that he will be as reliable and dependable as the previous owner. My last few bills have been $85. for fall removal and then another $85 for Spring install.

I recieved a letter from Wally (the old owner) thanking me for my business and recommending the new owner. The new owner also sent a letter and I am looking forward to many more years of great service from him. Thanks for the "nod" on the new guy and best of luck to him.

Bobber down, Tommy Tadpole

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
