      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.
