Boat Lift / Hoist and Dock Install and  Removal Tools

Foam Floats

In case you were wondering what 106 of our foam floats looks like on one load, here you go!

 Foam Floats for Dock/Pier and Boat Lift/ Hoist Install and Removal, Swim Rafts


This is what the pro installers use to move boat lifts and dock in the water. One float can move numerous sections of dock in one load, so why carry it? Effortlessly float your boat lift into place with two of our floats!


Whether for work or play, our closed-cell foam floats provide years of nearly-indestructable fun and function at the lake!  Kids, adults, and even dogs love to lounge on them!  Our floats come in a variety of sizes and colors, and are capable of floating immense weight (see floating 1,300# plus boat lift picture, below!). These are factory seconds, so they all have some sort of minor blemishing or slight deformities, which is why they are a fraction of the price of the float companies you see elsewhere!


Two of the full-thickness (roughly 4.5") floats are capable of floating nearly any size aluminum boat lift and canopy and can be easily cut into 7 strips each, allowing the user to never have to physically lift the boat hoist, and making leveling the legs a breeze while the lift is only semi-buoyant! Alternatively, cut into 4 halves for shallow water capability with one float under each footplate (as pictured) or left whole with one under each end spreader bar, then used as a swim raft the rest of the summer!


Floats can easily be cut into smaller sections for boat lift or dock installations/ removals with a simple hand saw or band saw if you happen to have one. Rope handles, mooring/ anchor lines and cup holders can be easily added by using a hole-saw and blow torch!


Our inventory of colors is random and always changing, please text or call Brent at 269-217-7188 for current color availability. We ALWAYS have black 5'x6' in stock which is 95% of what we sell!


We're sorry, due to the outrageous cost of shipping something of this size (shipping costs more than the float itself), as well as the unique blemishes on each float (we like to have you pick out the exact floats you want), WE DO NOT OFFER SHIPPING.


Please bring either a truck or trailer and ratchet straps for pickup! The 5'x6'x4.5" floats WILL NOT fit inside an SUV or minivan (they are actually about 5'3"x6'4" typically and do NOT bend or roll up), and it is simply too dangerous to tie onto the roof! The 4'x6'x4.5" will fit inside most SUVs or minivans if a truck or trailer are not available, though quanties of 4'x6' are limited.


4'x6' or 5'x6' Closed-Cell Foam Floats- $120 each plus 6% tax


5'x6' Closed-Cell Foam Floats w/ 4 Molded Cup Holders- $150 each plus 6% tax


5'x6' Beer Pong Closed-Cell Foam Floats- $300 each plus 6% tax

Two 5'x6'x4.5" Floats Cut Into Four Halves Floating 1,300+ lb. Boat Lift and Canopy Right on Top of Water
Cut One Float Into Thirds and Stack To Near Desired Dock Height For Easy 1 Person Dock Installation By Walking Sections Out Like A Wheelbarrow
It is nearly impossible to get the whole lift floating again for lift removal with four halves since the lift wants to float away from you after the first two. To remedy this, simply cut one of your floats into 6 long, skinny strips to sink under the lift
Cutting two 5'x6' floats into 14 total strips is now our preffered method for using floats as you no longer need to lift the hoist to get it onto the floats- simply stand on the float strips and sink one at a time around the lift until it pops up, allowin
Cut our floats into halves or strips easily with a basic hand saw, or band saw if you have one!
Moving a lift long distance? No problem! Just use four of our 5'x6' floats, the perfect system for small-time installers who don't own an expensive and complicated barge!
Leave Your Foam Floats Whole Instead Of Cutting In Halves or Strips, So That You Can Use Them As Swim Rafts Too!

Boat Lift/ Boat Hoist Wheel Kits

Our 3/8" Plates Are Much Thicker Than The Competition to Reduce Flex and Bent Brackets!
This photo is just an example, use this method at your own risk! Always consult with a professional first!

Unless you have a large crew of highly motivated labor to carry a lift in and out of the water here are some options to make the task easier. If your lake bottom and shoreline is relatively smooth and sandy, the 24'' poly wheels will work great. Also, a fantastic option if you store your lift far away from the shoreline. The axle brackets are adjustable and will fit almost any lift. Once positioned and bolted up, the brackets stay on the lift, just remove the wheels while lift is in use. We suggest buying one wheel set to share with your neighbors and just add additional brackets to each lift.


Heavy Duty Poly Wheel Kit includes 2 Wheels, 4 Axle Brackets, Axles and Pins- $247.00 plus 6% tax


Additional Axle Brackets- Four HD Axle Bracket Plates (One Pair)- For ShoreStation Brand Wheel Hubs 1.9" Axles- $109.00 plus tax

Smarte Jacks


Smarte Jacks are the easiest way to install and remove your plastic wheels for boat lift installation and removal. Simply use a cordless drill to retract the jacks to remove the wheels while lift is in use. Then, just slide your wheels back on at the end of summer, extend the jacks to raise and roll your boat lift out of the water and easily onto shore for winter storage!




Smarte Jacks Pair (Wheels NOT Included) $372 plus 6% tax

Cut a Foam Float Into Thirds and Stack to Desired Height of Dock, Float the Dock and Yourself While You Auger With A Post Ratchet For Easy Augering Without Your Buddy Holding the Dock While You Auger! - Use This Technique at Your Own Risk!



Dock Post Ratchet


If you have a lot of augers to install or remove, then this is the tool you need! Even if you only have 6 augered poles for your boat tie-up, this is a lifesaver! Our ratchets have TWO HANDLES which makes a world of difference versus the one-handle versions that are on the market, allowing you to steer your post in as you ratchet, rather than tipping the pole at an angle like with a piece of re-bar or a one-handed ratchet.


Save your buddies the hassle of holding up the dock while you auger using our foam floats (as seen above)!  Cut a full-size float into halves or thirds and stack to the approximate desired installation height for a quick and easy installation!


Dock Post Ratchet- $110.00 plus 6% tax
