Agreed, I was referring to the pivet points of the lift. Hydrohoist's UL model, I believe their most commen lift has no full up position - it only pivets. Boatfloater brand does have a full up position and would help the dock stay afloat.

Just a suggestion if someone here is looking for ideas.

The docks that the roof broke apart look so much better than the ones where the roof stayed intact and took everything down with/under it...........

I'm at the 21mm. Looks like my dock survived.
There's still a lot of ice/snow on it, so just hoping for warm weather before more snow or wind.

3mm is a total loss on all docks
1mm docks all saved
21mm many docks in bad shape

This info is from a Glencove salesman posted on MWBP.

The term you are looking for is "rough water stops". They limit the lift from going up too far. As you pump your lift up, the pivot arm pushes against the stop and doesn't allow the lift to bob up and down in rough water. Unfortunately, a majority of the HOA's at LOTO that have the large dock systems restrict the use of "rough water stops" as it transfers some of the stress from the lift to the dock in rough water situations. They would rather your lift float up and down freely.

If I was into fiberglass, gel, and paint work, I would be moving pronto. There is enough work there for two full years.

On a "glass half full" note, with some of these big cruisers inoperable next season, perhaps the lake will be a bit calmer.

Its painful to see all of that damage and destruction to the boats we are so passionate about. I hope our OSO members are affected as gently as possible.

That's what I was thinking.

Good luck to all you down there. Be safe. Don't risk your life to save your boat!

Pics of the marina by me. Bad news. Good news is that they got some big boats out of it before it collapsed.

the moorings were denied their insurance claim because their insurance co. warned and told them last year to reinforce their standards, cross bracing and to steepen their roof pitches or they will not be covered, wonder how many claims will be denied for whatever reasons.
