Starr’s Positive-Lock Legs

Most of our competitors use a pinned-lock leg system, which is far more difficult to adjust. Requiring you to insert a pin into the leg of your boat lift, these systems only allow for your lift to be adjusted to height increments of roughly 4″ at a time. Furthermore, such pinned-lock systems will often require you to manipulate the pin mechanisms while they are underwater, making the job of raising or lowering the legs on your lift far more difficult than it needs to be!

The innovative design of the Starr Positive-Lock Leg System eliminates all of these problems, making it one of the easiest boat lifts to adjust on the market! The Positive-Lock Leg System eliminates the need for pegs, allowing you to adjust each leg on your boat lift independently to any height you require. The locking bolts are also positioned up higher on the lift legs, and can even be placed above the water line and allowing for far easier manipulation than the standard pinned system.

Starr Pontoon Lifts (for boats up to 7,500 lbs.)

  • With the overall length of pontoon boats increasing, most companies try to modify a smaller boat lift to fit your pontoon. The Starr Pontoon lift is designed for pontoons with an overall length of 24’ or larger. The Starr PL has a 2 ½ foot longer frame creating a more stable platform, and a larger, safer structure to hold your craft, while increasing the lifts stability on any lake bottom.
  • Starr pontoon lifts (PL) are constructed with high strength aluminum.
  • Overlapping cradle design overlaps the entire width of the lift making Starr lifts the most shallow operating vertical lift in the industry!
  • Full length adjustable bunks – provide a great protected surface to raise your boat out of the water. PVC covered aluminum, maintenance free bunks are standard on Starr’s boat lifts
  • V-brace design allows easier boat accessibility.
  • Stainless steel leveling cables are standard to prevent rust and corrosion.
  • Stainless steel and galvanized hardware.

Dock and Hoist Services helped a good friend of mine with their dock installation, as well as recommended a hoist and put that in as well. They couldn't be happier! The crew was polite, did their job swiftly and accurately, and left the beach area clean. Dock and Hoist Services will be highly recommended to all of our East Bay friends!! Thank you!!
