All boat owners need to protect their boats from aquatic organisms that can attach to the hull and seriously affect its performance. A few years ago, the only way to make sure the boat would stay in good shape for longer was by applying anti-fouling paint. Since then, using a boat lift or a boat dry dock has become more popular. Boat Lifts Lifts have been in the market for a while now. They basically allow your boat to dry by taking it out of the water. This solution seems to work better for those who have small boats. Owners of larger vessels often feel uneasy about the chances of their vehicle tipping over and the lifts can also be time consuming. The main reason some people prefer not to use them is because they are not allowed in certain marinas or councils. If you have this issue, you are probably looking for a different solution. Sea Pen Docks These docks feature a revolutionary system that makes it much easier to look after your boat. The vessel always remains at water level, which makes it perfect for heavier boats or just anyone who does not like having to lift their boat out of the water. To use the dock you would only need to manoeuvre your vessel into it. After the dock has been closed, the water that is left inside is drained out. A mesh of rope is an integral part of the whole system, it allows air in so that the boat can dry and then remain on an air pocket; this is the feature that will keep it stable. Depending on the size, the boat will usually dry in about 25 minutes. If it rains or if another boat passes by and some water enters the dock, it will be pumped out automatically. The docks are available for different drives so you will definitely be able to find the one for you.
