Abstract : This report includes an analysis to determine if the cost of providing and maintaining boat lifts at Coast Guard Boat Forces units will be offset by the savings from reduced maintenance and repairs needed on boats stored out of the water. Data and results obtained from a one-year in-water evaluation of purchased boat lifts installed at various Coast Guard Boat Forces units are also included. Recommendations are made as to whether the Coast Guard should pursue future utilization of a boat lift solution to reducing long term maintenance costs. Salient characteristics for the recommended style of lift are also identified as part of lessons learned.
