Product Description
dock_edge A great value and design! This rugged one-piece float is rotationally molded for extra strength. These rotationally molded floats are seamless and thicker than blow molded floats which results in much stronger and thicker corners and edges where strength matters most. Unaffected by weather. 10 mounting points provide easy attachment to the stringers. Multi-directional troughs on top also add strength and make it easy to feed through water and electrical lines. 400 foam filled floats will not sink if dock is accidentally punctured. Backed by a 10-year warranty against defects. 400 lb. flotation capacity. 24" x 48" x 12".

    • Q:

      I am building several sections of 12 x 16 wooden dock to be used for launching crew shells. How many floats will I need for each section? I need low clearance on the dock as well. What is the float height of this product?

        A:

        According to the manufacturer:
        If using the 400lbs floats for a 12 x 16 section you would require 12 floats (this float will sit 9” out of the water)
        If using the 550lbs floats for a 12 x 16 section you would require 9 floats (this float will sit 13” out of the water)
        Ultimate height freeboard will depend on the size of the lumber, so if you use a 2 x 10 the deck height will be higher.

    • Q:

      Can these floats be bolted together to make one 15' long by 10' wide and will it support a 1400lb boston whaler 15' long

        A:

        Yes, these are actually meant to be joined to together because they are components that make up a floating dock system. If you want to actually pull the boat onto the drums, I would go with the company Jet Dock.

    • Q:

      On 10/18/2009 you asked the following question at Overtons

      “How many of these would I need to build a stable (enough to stand on safely) floating dock to add to my existing fixed dock?”

      Bryant C from Tech Department said:

      “I would recommend you decide how big of area you would like to have and then we can take it from there to design what you would like.”

      I'm thinking 5' x 10' floating dock section.

      • A:

        50 square feet, figure 50 x 30 lbs/ sq. ft = 1500 lbs of flotation. With these, 4 pcs would be fine, attach at the corners of the addition.
