Rafael, the owner of a 2009 Sea Ray 47 Sundancer, is from Ontario, Canada. He keeps his boat in Ontario during the summer and enjoys winters in Freeport, Bahamas. After the SeaLift sale was complete we scheduled to install his new lift here in Port Canaveral. Running down the eastern seaboard from Ontario the trip was scheduled to take 10 days. He arrived in Port Canaveral on Sept 1, 2017, Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, there was a hurricane headed up through the Caribbean. Rafael’s plans were for us to install the SeaLift ASAP so he could make the trip to the Bahamas before the Hurricane arrived. The forecast didn’t look good, so we decided to complete the installation and Rafael would lay up in a local marina to wait out the storm. When Matt from Coast to Coast Installations completed the installation Rafael could not find a boat slip within 200 miles because of the approaching Hurricane. Port Canaveral Marina, where the SeaLift installation occurred, did not have space as they had reserved every square foot of their space for yearly customers. As the Hurricane was now forecasted to hit the area in just two days, unease was setting in. After an exhausted effort to find a slip, Eric Nelson of Port Canaveral Marina was able to move the 47′ Sea Ray and fit the boat into its already overflowing boat yard. If not for the relationship between SeaLift and Port Canaveral Marina this story may of had a different ending. A few weeks later Rafael sent this picture of his boat idling through the Lucayan Waterway sporting a new SeaLift and PWC.
