Without a lift getting to the water involved a scary 15 minute drive in a 4 x 4 vehicle on a steep, rough track. With the lift it will be less that 5 minutes.
Lift 84: 105' at 20°, Getting to the Boathouse

Track: 100' long at 20°
The owners of this lift live at their cottage year-round and found they were spending less and less time in the boathouse and on the water.
The owners built a simple access platform. We set the height of the upper station level with the back porch so they can build a single level ramp from the back door to the lift if required.
We used the natural stone step at the bottom end to act as the lower station platform.
These people needed a lift to carry their Auntie between their home and the car.
Without a lift providing lifetime access from the cottage to the water, this would not have been a viable retirement home for the purchasers. With the lift it created the perfect retirement home.
These cottage owners really needed this lift to utilize the whole cottage and the water, without the lift they were considering selling.
This cottage property was a multi-generational family purchase and, without the lift, it would not have happened.
The Owners decided that it made sense to install this beautiful 2-Pitch Lift in to help sell their unique Shim-Sutcliffe designed cottage. The lift gives all prospective purchaser the ability to get to and from the water.
The new purchaser of this property needed the lift to accommodate his whole family, many who would arrive by boat.
