When purchasing a boat there is a lot of thought that goes into what’s best for you and your family. Of course you’ll want a boat that fits your needs out on the water, but what about fitting the dock. You’ll want to make sure that your dock at home fits the boat you’re looking to call your own.
There are many options out there when choosing the best way to store your boat in the off time. Of course not everyone who owns a boat lives on a lake and that’s perfectly fine, (might be a little easier). Just make sure you have the right trailer to keep your boat on or refer to our blog labeled “Boat Storage.”
Like we said before, there are many options for storing your boat so making sure you do your research on it. Dockbuilders for example has floats for your boat that helps prevent damage from the elements. Here are a few facts that might help in your selection.
Dockbuilders Dock Floats are a one-piece rotationally molded part, which eliminates seams than could result in separation and leakage. The thick shell is made of extra strong virgin polyethylene containing ultraviolet inhibitors. This tough shell helps prevent damage from the sun, salt water, fresh water, debris, oil, gas, and marine organisms. Each drum is foam-filled with expanded polystyrene, which contains no CFC’s or HCFC’s, (nontoxic, nonflammable chemicals). The dock floats have a flat top with molded-in mounting slots for easy attachment to any dock framework; whether wood, steel or aluminum. Floating docks will provide long lasting and carefree encapsulated flotation, resulting in long-range savings for recreational docks and complex marinas.
