The biggest downside to these are that you'll have to snap on a cover vs pulling under a canopy on a lift. (if this is a concern)

We have Sea Legs on our "Toon" and would never be without them. They have withstood severe storms. As mentioned above we do have to snap our cover on, but others have a canopy type of boat lift cover, without the lift mechanism. They simply pull the toon under the canopy and activate the sea legs. I consider the option of snapping a cover on each night still saves quite a bit of money compared to buying a "Good" pontoon lift with a canopy. One less thing to put in and take out each year.

My parents have them on their new pontoon. They're OK. If the installers would have installed them correctly from the get-go, they would be better.

My parents live on a body of water influenced by a river. So, they get lots of fluctuation in water levels. They can park wherever they need to with the Sea Legs. That's a nice deal.

I experienced them for the first time this weekend on my buddy's pontoon. I thought they were pretty slick. Especially if you go visit any sandbars or restaurants.

Saves buying and then dragging the lift in and out of the water every year. Re: buttoning the cover - I've always found the button covers will keep your boat looking a lot better than just using just the lift canopies….although you do have to fool around with 10 min of covering after each use.

Big, you hit it right on the head, you dont have to worry about taking a lift out, and putting it back in. Like it was stated before, there is really know good canopy for it. Sea Legs makes one, which is good, but its really just another thing in the water. Its a great product to have on your pontoon.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
