I have operated a few that do, and they seem to work pretty good.

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.

    • So Del is following in Down2Earth's footsteps on Trump, good to know. Hey I will take Trump over Hillary but why vote for either of them if I don't have to, why play that game?
    • At least homeboy's doom and gloom is broken up with moments of describing how personally awesome he is.
    • Better save some of that sauce to drink while watching the Cheeto train run off the tracks.
    • Where did you get this "hero" stuff,  Dave?  And Trump is different in that he had never engaged in party politics either as an office holder or a candidate, unlike all the other Republican candidates.   And as for dumb and extreme ideas being a bad thing, I thought you supported Gary Johnson?   And the two party system is a fact of life, the way elections are set up in the US with the Constitutional need for a majority not just a plurality of electors.   Perhaps somehow it could be shoehorned to be a coaliton deal, if electors were free and states weren't winner take all.   But the way it is now, it is a two party deal, just like it has been for a very long time.   No endorsement necessary to recognize the facts.  As for the opposition, I never saw #nevercruz, or #neverjeb or #neverkasich...  So how much support should candidates have to have to be included?  You want Jill Stein as well?   How about the next half dozen down the line?  Why did Gary Johnson not go for the Republican nomination anyway?   Surely Big Weed would have financed his run. 
    • Does anyone out there know if its even possible to put 2 atvs on a 6x12 anyone make some kind of deck of front to hold a wheeler I've tired every thing but know realized that i would have to pay fees and re license a new trailer which i don't want to do. If anyone knows it would be greatly appreciated!!
    • try some paint thinner it might sound harsh but it cleans and puts a shine on it also. of coarse try it on a corner first just to see it melts  
    • I hope they figure out the problem.   When I had that with charter here in Rochester, it turned out to be a poor job of putting the connector on the cable where it went into the house.  There was a little piece of foil shielding intermittently shorting out the cable inside the connector.  All from a half arsed job of installation in the first place.  
    • Couldn't the same be said for Cruz, Sanders, Paul and most of the other presidential candidates? Don't you always have to take on your own party first? Every candidate has to do it, nothing new here. Again, what candidate is not opposed by all the other candidates. The reason he is so despised by the party at large is because most sane members know that he is not capable of the diplomacy necessary to do the job.  Traditional? Wouldn't the traditional way be to try to gain the nomination of the party you were a member of when you won 2 terms of Governor? I don't see what is "traditional" about going outside of a political party that would afford you much more money and influence than a 3rd party. So Trump's a hero for trying to use a political organization to further his own agenda? Rand Paul has been trying to do what you are talking about but I don't see you gushing over him for it.  That's how it has to be done because of the corruption of the 2 party system that you are more than happy to whole heartedly endorse. Face it, Trump is no hero. He's just the latest GOP candidate with dumb and extreme ideas that the party base seems to love but no one else does. 
    • Sure del. I have 2 patches and rotate. Some years a don't need to make any. It's fine. The roots just get bigger;
