How many are needed for a 12x12 dock?

Would 4 of these work for a 12x12 dock? It probably depends on the decking material used and the size of the frame structure i assume. I was thinking of using 2x8x12 PT with either PT or ThruFlow decking

6 plus 3 flat center support floats with the same 16" height. Use three on each side and the flats down the center.

The height is 21". Does that include the extended part? Does this match up to a 12" flat float? I would like to purchase two of these for the ends of a 4 x 16 dock and fill in the middle with the tommy dock 48x24x12 square floats. Will that work?

building a floating light weight house boat

if i put around 8 to 10 of these plastic floats together? We were looking at an idea to use a sea plane float system but we needed to keep the costs down. I stumbled across these plastic floats you have for sale and thought its an idea but will they work on a floating house boat?
Asked by: delta23
My answer is no based on having a houseboat. You need much taller floats that can go under and not just on at the side. My houseboat is 16ft wide and my floats are 36x48x24 down on each side with a slight hangover for a 40ft boat. this is very stable and sites high enough that the wood does not touch the water. These floats are more for a smaller side deck. Over build floats for weight on the houseboat. You will have more weight than you expect with furniture, friends, family, and fun stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product made it so easy to build our Dock These floats are just the thing you need if building a floating dock. We used them on the sides of our 10' x 16' floating dock. These floats make it so easy to build a floating dock. They are sturdy and give the dock complete support. We got 10 people on our dock and didn't even feel it unsteady at any time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome floats I ordered 10 of these floats for a 6 foot by 20 foot floating dock. They work great and have a nice built in bumper for the boat side of the dock. I would highly recommend these for anyone rebuilding a floating dock
