If you own a boat, you know how important it is to have a reliable and efficient boat lift system. Dockside Lil’ Lifter is popular among boat owners due to its versatility and high-quality construction. In this article, we will explore the features and benefits of the Dockside Lil’ Lifter, available in both manual and electric/remote control versions, with various lifting capacities and travel options.

What is a Pier/Dock Mounted TL?


Dockside Lil’ Lifter has come a long way since its inception. Over the years, it has evolved into a sophisticated and user-friendly boat lift system that meets the diverse needs of boat owners. 




1. Manual and Electric/Remote Control Options


One of the primary reasons for Dockside Lil’ Lifter’s popularity is its adaptability. Whether you prefer a traditional manual system or the convenience of an electric/remote control operation, Dockside Lil’ Lifter has you covered. This versatility ensures the lift system caters to boat owners with varying preferences and requirements.


2. Lifting Capacity and Travel Options


It offers multiple lifting capacity and travel options, making it suitable for different types of boats. The lifting towers are available in 5’, 7’, and the new 10’ lifting travel with 1,000 lbs and 1,400 lb capacity. With the enhanced 1,400 lb capacity, the cradle has been widened to 54”, allowing for day sail, inflatable boats, and larger Jet Skis.


3. Under Dock Tower Brace


In 2013, Dockside Lil’ Lifter introduced the innovative under-dock tower brace. This feature revolutionized the installation process, as boat owners were no longer limited to mounting the lift over the dock pile. Now, you can install your lift virtually anywhere on your pier, offering greater flexibility and convenience.


4. Kayak/Canoe Platform


The addition of the Kayak/Canoe platform is another testament to Dockside Lil’ Lifter’s commitment to meeting diverse needs. The platform is designed to bolt directly onto your existing TL750 model, creating a convenient launch and retrieval deck with 3’ x 6’ dimensions. This feature enhances the overall functionality of the lift system, catering to more than just traditional boat owners.


5. Quality Construction


Dockside is constructed from 6061 – T6 marine-grade aluminum, ensuring durability and longevity. The large aluminum winch wheel makes lifting effortless, while the fully adjustable dock plate allows easy customization according to the desired wheel height. Nylatron rollers used on cradles provide smooth, clean, trouble-free operation without lubrication.


Additional Features of the Lil’ Lifter: 


  • Enhanced Corrosion Resistance: The lift system has stainless steel hardware and cables, ensuring excellent corrosion resistance, especially in marine environments. Dockside Lil’ Lifter also offers optional zinc anodes for boat owners operating in salt or brackish water, further enhancing the system’s longevity.


  • Easy Shipping: Dockside Lil’ Lifter has made the shipping process hassle-free for customers. Thanks to its design, the lift system can be shipped conveniently through UPS, saving both time and effort.


  • Accessories and Custom Options: Dockside Lil’ Lifter offers various accessories and custom options to enhance the lift system’s functionality further and meet individual preferences.
