  • Q:

    None of you information indicates the flotation capacity of any of the float drums. Can you please supply. Can this product remain in the lake year round in temperatures of -30 below in the winter?

      Right under our picture of the item, click on SPECs and it should have the info you are looking for. This particular one has 1816 lbs . Yes you can leave them in year round and let them freeze in. You can also check out our Dewdock system for floating docks. Its under the mooring section, then click on float drums.

  • Q:

    Hi, I need to build myself a 'dinghy dock' to store my inflatable dinghy with 8hp outboard motor when I'm not using it in my marina. The dinghy is a little smaller than 9' by 5' with the motor of course hanging off the back.
    I am thinking of buying this, attaching a 4x8 piece of marine-grade plywood on top, and then a piece of marine-grade carpet over that. This would be tied up at the head of the slip where I keep my sailboat.
    I realize the dinghy will overlap the float, but the float has incredible lift compared to the weight it will support, and I will have the dock on 2 sides for easy access.

    Do you think this would work? Any advice?

      I don't see why this would work as long as it is anchored down and supported properly. I haven't heard of anyone using these for this type of application, but sounds like it should work ok.
