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.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
