What is a floating dock?
Floating docks are a type of large platform that floats on the water’s surface. Though they are connected to land, they are not anchored to the bottom. Floating docks are available in pre-built sections that can be designed in various different shapes and sizes. While many property owners prefer fixed docks, at time floating docks are considered the perfect solution for most bodies of water.
A floating dock is buoyant, so you can walk across it safely without worry. Floating docks typically have nonslip surfaces, which also make them safer even if they get wet. The nonskid surface and stability make it easier to get in and out of boats on the water.
Another benefit of floating docks is their fixed nature, which prevents boat owners from having to worry about additional slack line or moving bumpers when the tide shifts. If you choose a basic wooden dock, it will require a lot of upkeep, and you will have to replace it frequently. Floating docks come in various material options, most of which are much sturdier and more durable than traditional wooden docks.
