Icy Boat Docks and Lifts for Winter Weather

Rivers and lakes that freeze present unique challenges for floating docks and boat lifts. Stationary docking structures are often destroyed during winter ice conditions. JetDock's shallow-drafting, durable modules help solve ice problems.

Most cold climate customers leave their Jet Dock boat docks and PWC lifts in ice for the winter. So long as you do not have "moving" ice that can tear the dock away or bang it up against another structure, the JetDock is perfectly fine to leave iced-in during winter weather. Unlike mechanical lifts, your JetDock does not have to be removed and land stored during the winter. This saves an immense amount of time and aggravation for the cold-climate boater.

Be sure to use common sense. Remove and winterize your watercraft and store it away during the off-season. And untie your JetDock from rigid moorings (PDF) or remove the moorings altogether. Spring-tie your JetDock freely so it does not rub up against other structures, and do not leave the JetDock in locations where moving ice can tear it away and cause damage.

For most marina boat slips and quiet water areas, go ahead and leave your JetDock in the ice -- and say "hello" to it in the Spring. It will be there waiting for you!
