A remote control is the most important accessory that we recommend for your boat lift. Our philosophy is to make your boating experience as easy as it can be. There are so many things about owning a boat that are not fun. This is one feature that makes it a lot easier for you to use your lift.
The remote control with auto-stop feature makes your lift work like your garage door opener. It has top and bottom stops. This will prevent the lift from touching the seabed which will cause the cables to backlash and cause problems.
The remotes also come with the ability to attach a light that you can operate on the fob so that you can light up your slip or dock with the touch of a button.
Angled cradles are a feature that are needed when you have much shallower water next to your dock but gets deeper toward the center of the boat. The bottom cradle beams are angled up to take advantage of how the seabed contour gets deeper. It allows the lift to be lowered further down to get your boat on and off at lower tides.
An aluminum catwalk gives you access to the outside of the boat for cleaning. It mounts on the cradle beams and provides a walking surface next to the boat.
A stern access platform is a small deck at the rear of the vessel that allows you to access the motor(s) and drain plug. Usually, you either step on it from the dock, a catwalk, or you drop down from the back of the boat.
A cable retention system is a method to prevent the cables from backlashing and causing the cables to come unwound and wrapping over themselves. This usually happens if the cradle beam is lowered to the bottom and sits on the seabed. The tension is released from the cables and they unwind themselves. The retention system keeps them in place long enough to give you time to reverse the direction and pick up the tension on the cable again. DECO has a proprietary system that is unique to their lifts. The cables sit in an extra deep groove and a black plastic block sits just off the cable so that if they come loose they do not jump their groove track.
