Northern MN Could Have A Late Ice Out
We're heading into the month of April and you can be sure of two things; 1.) The snow and Ice will eventually melt opening up the lake for your enjoyment, and, 2.) Smart waterfront property owners have either already planned and ordered their new dock or lift, or they are wrapping up their choices right now before March ends, and before the huge spring rush to get all of that new waterfront equipment installed in the water. Those waterfront property owners that have already ordered their new docks and lifts have afforded themselves the best opportunity to kick off the 2023 boating season with a new dock or lift (or accessories), and minimal, or zero delays to the start of their summer on the lake, because they are typically first in line when in comes to installation. If you are still waiting to purchase your new dock or lift, you not only risk the potential for product delays, but you will also struggle to find installers squeezing you into their already overbooked schedules.
Rasmusson also said "Last summer was tough on new waterfront property owners that closed on their properties later in the summer. We were able to help our customers out, but it sounds like a lot of manufacturers and dealers ran out of inventory early in the year and couldn't satisfy some of that late season demand."
Do I Still Have Time To Purchase My Dock and Lift and Have It Installed This Spring?
You absolutely still have time to purchase your new dock or lift and have it installed this spring. But if you are reading this in April, and you still haven't pulled the trigger on your new waterfront equipment, you really are running out of time to make sure that you can take advantage of every ice-free day on the water that's available this summer, because you are already several months behind other waterfront property owners who have already planned, designed, and purchased their waterfront equipment. So, if you are still on the fence about whether or not to finally buy that new dock or lift, don't wait any longer, now is the time to finalize the decision, so you can relax while the snow and ice melts, knowing that you will in fact be out on the water early this spring and summer.
