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.

How much do one of those things run? Those are quite nifty...

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.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
