DC Power Makes Boat Lifts Safe and Reliable

For owners, keeping their pride and joy on a boat lift is a good move. They eliminate the need for bottom paint, the danger of sinking in the slip, and scummy watermarks. But, many novice users find loading a vessel intimidating, since getting it safely centered in the lift and holding its position until the platform raises can be tricky, especially in high wind and waves. ShoreStation, known for its extensive line of boat support and loading aides, introduces an exclusive new construction for its GlideRail and GlidePole load guides.

ShoreStation's GlideRail horizontal load guides feature a uniquely boat-friendly flare design plus vertical post bumpers that work together to capture the bow and steer the boat to center when entering in wind and waves. It fully adjusts horizontally and vertically to match a hull, while the T-slot keeps all mounting hardware safely away from the boat.

These updates allow ShoreStation to offer unparalleled craft protection, additional guide-on assistance, and improved safety. The new construction features a 3" diameter cylindrical shape with a durable aluminum core, a non-marring poly outer sheath, and full length T-slot channel for mounting and adjusting.

The GlidePole bumper-style guides can be installed within a 90° arc on each corner leg of the lift to protect from every angle and provide a visual aid when centering and landing. The T-slot allows it to adjust vertically to any height for desired protection and assures the hull is protected from mounting hardware damage. ShoreStation's GlidePoles are available in three lengths.

The new GlideRail and GlidePole load guides complement an already extensive line of ShoreStation landing devices such as bow and motor stops, spring loaded centering devices, and specialized tritoon support/load guide combinations. All material designs are employed to offer creative, custom solutions to landing problems and to provide maximum vessel protection. Altogether, ShoreStation can fit any craft and meet any need with these customizable options.
