  • One boat lift available to renters – lift can handle a 23 foot 3,000 LB boat
  • If your boat has wakeboard racks they will need to be swiveled in prior to docking the boat. Please be careful when pulling in to dock – remember to check that racks are turned in to clear the entrance to the dock’s boat lift.
  • Lower cradle into water but stop once it hits the bottom you will notice that the boat will start to float generally when there are one or two wraps of cable on the pipe above. Keeping a wrap or two on the pipe allows the cable to wrap evenly as it rolls back up. The cradle doesn’t usually need to go all the way to the bottom to allow the boat to float.
  • After use, raise the cradle out of the water so it does not decay in the water.
  • Owner keeps boat on one side of dock and trailer (or trailer and boat) in garage of house
  • Nearest public boat launch is Mary Quinlan Park and is about 15 minutes from the house. You may want to launch your boat before arriving to the house and then just come to the house with the trailer. There is a neighborhood boat launch but is restricted to Apache Shores residents and requires the resident’s phone to open the gate so please use the Mary Quinlan Park public ramp. Our house is at a dead end so you will need to swing up Hunters Pass and then back in your boat or trailer to get into the driveway.
  • The canoe on site is available for guest use.  Life jackets and paddles are located inside the closet in the boat dock.  Please pull canoe out of the water and return any items before you depart.
  • Return the empty boat lift to the up position before you depart
