Q:Building a 6 foot by 16 foot dock. Do I use 2x8 framework or 2x6? Should the floats be 12 inches or 16 inches? Thanks
by|Jul 26, 2020

Answer This Question

A:  Literature says 2x6 adequate for a pond but I used 2x8 and think that is better. I used 16 inch floats as they have greater buoyancy and raise dock higher out of water.

      I built a simple 56" x 120" floating dock made with 2x6 pressure treated lumber. The float bolted perfectly using a 3/8 diameter carriage bolt.

        These floats are very well made and were easy to mount. They hold our little fishing dock high up out of the water. It is very stable and can now hold a bunch of people without tipping or settling down in the water. They're not cheap, but are worth the money for the quality.
