48 in. x 72 in. x 12 in. Dock System Float Drum is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from damaged---but like the items One of the two floats was seriously damaged. There was a huge puncture as if a fork lift drove one of its forks right thru the float. Fortunately, the damage was at the top of the float and no water would get in. I sealed it with silicone to make it waterproof, it works fine.. As far as the actual item---it was a little taller than I wanted but that turned out to be a good geese no longer climb up on my dock !!!! four of these floats provide SERIOUS floatation for my two 6x10 floating dock sections.....strongly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and reasonable shipping to Alaska These are top of the line floats and will work great for my dock. The way you can order on line and have shipped through Carlile in Seattle makes it that much more reasonable getting into Juneau.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item These floats were exactly as described. They were easy to install and worked great on my dock. If you need floats for your dock I would recomend giving these a try.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked Well for our application, 10 x 18 floating dock Floats work as advertised. Took longer than I expected for delivery, about 3 weeks from the purchase date. I was a little bummed when the price went up 10% the day I bought them, but I guess that was my mistake for not pulling the trigger sooner. I built a 10 x 18 Aluminum platform and pre drilled the holes to fasten the floats, 3 of the 4 lined up perfectly but one float was a 1/2 inch shorter.. so I had to drill new holes in the float, which I don't think is recomended... so don't pre-drill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked as expected easy to work with and relatively light for the use I intended
