Basically all u need to know is stay a 24x48x16 will float 600 lbs, correct?

Asked by Bob November 15, 2017

Answers

I think the rating is 540 pounds. Based on my experience if you put that much weight in the float it will be just barely out of the water. I would plan on 1/2 of the weight limit or less.

I’m building a 30 foot by 30 foot dock for my place in Alaska who can help with putting a list of everything needed.

Asked by Jdog January 24, 2018

Jdog, the list you are requesting would vary considerably depending on configuration and how you are securing the dock. One piece of advise, the buoyancy rating for these floats appears high to me. I would say the actual rating is 1/2 of what is listed. I think the maximum number listed would be to keep the float just above water with the amount of weight listed. I purchased two of the floats and built a 4' x 9'' wood frame to keep them in place. Then put a 200 pound dinghy on top and it sat in the water a lot lower than I anticipated. I calculated the frame and dinghy to weigh in at about 400 pounds. These floats have a 540 pound rating. I used two which should equal 1080 pounds of capacity. When you calculate how much your dock will weigh and what you will be putting on the dock, plan on 50% of the float capacity or maybe less depending how high you want the dock out of the water.

How many will I need for a 16X14 dock, 2x8 with trex deck. Will 12" keep dock floating 8 inch above water?

Hi Marc, the float you are inquiring about is out of stock right now and won't be available until beginning of July. So when available, 24" x 48" x 16" then you'll need 10. Hope this answers your question. The Multinautic Team

Hi Clyde, If I understand correctly, your dock is basically going to be an 8' x 10' dock correct? If so, see the little chart, it tells you the number of floats needed depending on the size of the float.

How many floats will I need for four sections that are 10 ft long 4 ft x 10 ft the one on the end will be sideways

Asked by TR August 10, 2017

Answers

I built a 4x9 float for a small dinghy to keep it out of the water. So very similar to your size and I purchased 2 of the floats. I found the 4' wide to be very unstable in the water when standing on it or pulling the dinghy up on. If you have the room consider 6x10 or 8x10 and you will have a more stable platform. I am considering building a second 4x9 and bolting them together. Wish I had built an 8x8 to start with.

How do the floats tolerate freezing temperatures and ice? Do they need to be removed from the lakes before freeze up?

Asked by CK July 6, 2016

Answer

No, they do not need to be removed from the lakes before freezing.

Are these dimensions precise?

Asked by Liberty June 20, 2020
1
Answer

The sizes are fairly precise but as with all types of materials, allowances must be made for shrinkage and changing of exact dimensions due to temperature and other conditions. Length on top is 48" while bottom is 47.09". Width on top 24" and the base is 23.04". The height of the float is 16". Thanks for asking.

Wonderful!
I used four 3/8 carriage bolts with a large, and small washer and nut to fasten each float. It worked perfectly. No issues, quick delivery to customer. I am going to buy these again!

Dock floats
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Great float. Versatile and easy to use. Fastening slots too wide though... need to use very large bolts (1/2” lags) with Multiple washers and still wants to slip through under tension.

Very easy to install and they secure well to the 8"X10" raft we made. Will hold 4 adults for fishing on a small pond using an electric motor. Seem durable. Much better than 50 gallon barrels.
