If you plan to build with this kit I would warn you that it most likely will not show up with all the parts or plans. It took about 8 weeks for me to get the parts delivered. The floats came but not the hardware. There are NO detailed plans for this kit, just vague pictures of how to build it. Quality seems to be reasonable, but I won't know until it has a few seasons of use.
Order this kit early and hope that you get what you ordered. It seems that the parts get lost in shipment. Multinautic stands behind their product and they did send me my missing parts, no plans. watch videos helps in understanding the process.

did a lot of research and home depot was the least expensive kit for a 6'-0" x 16'-0" platform once hardware and shipping was included. the products are fine and we've used our swim platform for a season without the slightest problem. I'm writing this review to give anyone considering a dock kit a heads up. Barnacles love the floats! there wasn't a square inch that wasn't covered. if I was to do it again I would apply bottom paint before setting in the water.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LAKEGIRL423 GREAT DOCK IN ALL BUT INSTRUCTIONS & EXTRA REQUIRED HARDWARE DIFFER FROM ONLINE TO WHAT'S IN BOX! EXTRA HARDWARE NEEDED AS WELL!
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
I ALSO ORDERED A GANGWAY KIT, BUT IT WAS NEVER DELIVERED TO THE STORE AND HAD TO CANCEL THE ORDER AS I ENDED UP NOT NEEDING IT ANYWAY.
THE FINAL DOCK PRODUCT IS GREAT BUT THE DIRECTIONS AND LISTED REQUIRED HARDWARE ARE WAY OFF FOR THE SIZE DOCK WE BUILT AND CAUSED A LOT OF FRUSTRATION.
RECOMMEND CALLING THE MULTINAUTIC COMPANY IN CANADA TO GET THE COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS SO YOU CAN HAVE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF HARDWARE, ETC. IN TIME FOR WHEN THE DOCK KIT IS DELIVERED.

Since I have never built a dock before, I was interested in this "complete" kit. However, what arrived differed greatly from the description. If you look closely at the drawings, there are not near enough brackets to join the pieces. Further, delivery was a disaster. The first shipment arrived at my local home depot with one of the floats pierced by a fork lift and the second shipment directly to my house was delayed several days. I would have been much better off purchasing the floats from a dock company and buying the hardware separately.

No instructions included... I literally had to print another review to get the needed parts list for bolts/nuts/washers etc.

Used the pick up at store option. 2 of the floats either are missing a piece or were pierced by forklift making them no longer water tight. Called the manufacturer and my call has yet to be returned after a few weeks. Hardware box was in pieces when handed to me at the store. Had to account for all the hardware.

My sons and I assembled the 8' X 16' dock. I e-mailed the material list that came with the kit to our Home Depot and they delivered it two days later(Saturday morning). We aren't very "handy" but by Sunday evening the dock was in the water. We put the deck boards on the next few evenings. I called the supplier with some questions and they were very helpful. The 8' X 16' dock is very stable and has good support. Highly Recommended!
