Combining an aluminum boat lift with the power of a hydraulic engine and a safe 12 volt motor, we
knew we were onto something special when we created our first hydraulic boat hoist in the mid
r our own watercraft. In time and with many refinements along the way, we turned our
exciting new product into a company in 1989 with the introduction of the Genesis Sea Lift and Summit

Commitment to Innovation
"We may learn to deprive large masses of their gravity,
and give them absolute levity, for the sake
of easy transport."
Ben Franklin, 1780
, we’re not about to levitate a thousand people. We’ll leave that to the Einstein’s of the
world. We are, however, all about levitating boats
a thousand time
, we didn’t invent the very first boat lift, we had
nothing to do with inventing hydraulics, we didn’t
discover 12 volt electricity or the brushless motor.
…And no, we’re not the ones claiming to have invented
the question mark either…
r, take credit for being the first
successful pioneers to combine an aluminum boat lift with hydraulic power and a safe 12
volt motor source along with great style and performance
History in the Making
It started with a desire
we know, it’s only a boat lift
we’ll try to keep it real… …but
when you see up close what we did, you’ll understand if we sound a little ‘out there’. We love it,
absolutely, positively love it. Crazy? Maybe. But ask
yourself, if you’re going to build your dream
house, buy an exotic car, enjoy a gourmet meal, or shoot scratch golf, wouldn’t you want those
‘passionate’ people on your staff
inventing, designing, building, testing, and encouraging… until…
It’s the mid 80’s, Ronald Reagan (the actor?) was president, the Dow was at 1,200 (it would triple
by 1995, five years later it would break 10,000). A home on a lake was built, and a boat was
purchased… A background in engineering and experience with hydr
aulic equipment would lead a
local inventor to ask himself if there wasn’t a better mousetrap available. 4 months later, a crude
version of today’s HL series was born… It was a 2,000# capacity, single cylinder, 12 volt, aluminum
cantilever lift. We used a
single acting snowplow cylinder, a hydraulic pump from the Grainger
catalog and tested it with my father’s pontoon boat with 600# of brothers…
Crude? No doubt.
very much so. The following year we added a second cylinder and made it
g, so now it lifted and retracted under power.
