Since keeping up with the maintenance of a boat year round can take a lot of time, many boat owners will decide to dry dock or store their boat above the water using a boat hoist or lift. A boat hoist, which is often transported to a dock using a work barge, can be used to lift a boat out of the water and hold the boat in a cradle above the dock. This is especially useful for maintenance, repair, or storage of a boat, because storing a boat above water will help prevent the growth of bacteria or mildew. When owning a boat in cold climate or in water that has the potential to freeze during the winter, a boat hoist can be especially useful.
