Replacement Boat Lift Fabric Canopy

June 2, 2011

Replacement Boat Lift Canopies

The boat lift has been at the lake for years. It has stood up surprising well for an aluminum frame that has been alternatingly; in the water or dragged up and frozen on the shore.

The primary purpose of a boat lift is two-fold; to lift the boat out of the water to keep the bottom clean and to keep the boat shaded / sheltered from above to protect it from the sun and weather.

Now after more than a decade, the cover portion of the boat lift is starting to look worn – or perhaps a recent wind storm finally finished the old fabric top off.

Go2marine supplies boat lift canopy covers for many of the boat lifts built-in the past 40+ years. Boat lift cover fabric is available in 3 types of fabric with 6 colors each offering 18 choices of personalizing the fabric.

Fabric

  • Vinyl – good quality and long-lasting; likely the fabric you had on your boat lift canopy from the factory. Heavy weight at 16 oz. per square yard. Easy to clean and affordable.
  • Harbor Time – better quality and more visually appealing to some. This is an Acrylic coated Polyester material. Quality look at a lighter weight, 11 oz. Made by the same company that makes Sunbrella.
  • Seamark – great quality with a rugged fabric. This fabric is a combination of the two best materials; the rugged acrylic fabric Sunbrella and a backing of waterproof vinyl. Sunbrella is also waterproofed at the thread level (no coating to peel away). At just over 16 oz. it is the heaviest of the boat lift cover fabrics.

Construction

  • Maximum leak resistance – all the fabrics that are used in the construction for boat lift canopies are coated and offer long-term water resistance.
  • Custom fit, Custom details – CAD patterns, scalloped trim. Professional seams along with stitching reinforcement where it is needed the most.

Installation

The original top was being held on with springs and line. Your replacement cover will have all necessary mounting hardware included. Canopy Installation Instructions will be included with the new replacement fabric canopy.

Replacement boat lift canopy covers for most popular manufacturers of boat lifts, including: Shore Station, Lake Shore, Beach King, Floe, Hewitt, Newman’s, Pier Pleasure, Porta-Lift and Shoremaster. All of these manufacturers are based in Minnesota, the “Boat Lift” State!
