Located in Fort Myers, Florida, Water’s Edge Marina in Peppertree Pointe is a true boating lifestyle community. Its residents recently renovated their 32-slip private marina, with help from marine contractor Stokes Marine and Golden Boat Lifts, the leader in state-of-the-art boat lift technology.
Tony Wallis, Stokes Marine sales professional, had been working on the project for three years. With his help, the residents came to understand the benefits of out-of-water storage—less maintenance, a cleaner hull and improved speed—but the existing slips were too narrow to fit traditional lifts. He worked with Golden Boat Lifts to design a solution that shares a center beam. “It was a great team effort,” he said.
Stokes Marine installed new piles and 13 4-Post Lifts with 7,500 lb. capacities. Each is fully welded of premium 6061 T6 marine-grade aluminum. Components such as cables and hardware are 300 series stainless steel. The combination is a product that will provide safe and reliable service for decades to come.
Stokes Marine is an exclusive Golden Boat Lifts dealer. “It’s a great product and they have the best drive in the industry,” said Wallis. Golden Sea-Drives® are so reliable that in over 22,000 manufactured, not one has ever failed.
A leading custom marine contractor in southwest Florida, Stokes Marine installs boat lifts, piles, rip rap and seawalls, and builds docks, decks, boardwalks and boat houses. It boasts eight construction crews, a full time service department, a fleet of trucks and three crane barges. Its website is www.stokesmarine.com.
