  • Patent number: 8727661
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for controlling a variable speed boat lift motor. The systems, apparatuses, and methods include a user interface for connection to a variable speed boat lift drive. The user interface transmits a signal to a variable speed boat lift drive that causes the variable speed boat lift drive to rise at a first speed set by a user through the user interface and lower at a second speed set by a user through the user interface.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20120263534
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for automatically leveling a boat lift. The systems, apparatuses, and methods include a level sensor for sensing a level of at least two portions of a boat lift and a user interface. The user interface is for coupling to the level sensor and for maintaining the boat lift at less than a predetermined slope.
