An ever-growing portion of our business is lift platforms. These platforms are a great way to launch and service smaller vessels such as kayaks, jet skis, and flats boats. Custom platforms can be designed and built for larger vessels such as offshore center consoles. Each platform has an aluminum frame that is attached to the boatlift cradle. Plastic decking panels with a “grated” design are attached into the top of the aluminum frame. The platform is lifted in and out of the water by operating the boatlift controls. When a lift platform is paired with the GEM remote system, it works exceptionally well for kayakers. A kayaker can lower their kayak with the remote control button into the water. When the kayaker returns at the end of their trip, they can kayak over top of the platform, hit the “up” button on the handheld remote control, and the kayak is lifted out of the water.
