Questions & Answers

When floating how many inches are exposed above the waterline?

I want to build a kayak dock and want to decide between 12 inch and 8 inch deep floats. I am leaning toward 8 inch, but don't know if I could use 2 X 6s around the edge. Thinking they may be in the water if the floats sink 2 inches or more into the water.
Asked by: RR
These floats mount to the bottom of the frame, not inside, so you'll have 8" (floats) plus 5 1/2 (for 2x6) total height before counting for weight. I used 8" tall floats with 2x6x8's to build an 8x8 raft. My raft draws about 3" of water, so the wood doesn't touch the water. But when I walk to the edge of the raft it dips, which is to be expected. I'm only 160lbs, so the wood never gets wet, but it's close. With that said, if you're a 200lb man, the outer framed wood will most likely get wet but only while you are standing near the edge.

how much weight will this support

Asked by: Stanley
the weight supported is listed in the specs. But see the answer regarding the Kayak dock to understand how to calculate how deep in the water it will float (draft) carrying a given weight

I purchased and received a 24x48x12, still new, has not been installed. My question, could I exchange it for the 24x48x8? Ideally I need a 24x24x6

I am willing to pay any additional charges. Please respond.
