    Q:IF I USE THIS PRODUCT AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE DOCK, THERE WILL BE TWO FEET AT EACH CORNER NOT PROTECTED BY THE BUMPER. DO YOU HAVE A PRODUCT TO FILL THIS VOID?
    by|Aug 11, 2021
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  I put mine at each end of the left and right sides. So the ends of the dock are not protected. However, if you want to protect the entire perimeter of your dock, there are dock bumper strips available at most marine/boating supply dealers and on-line catalogs.

          Designed for use with 2 x 6 lumber. These were easy to use to build your dock structure.

          These things are awesome! Easy to build around, shipping was free. Ordered 6 of these and 6 of the other ones for a 12x16 dock. Highly recommended!

          Good product.
          These floats are great. The dock is close to the water so it is easy to get in and out from small boats, climb out after swimming, or sit with your feet in the water. The bumper feature is great - no problem with a boat colliding with the edge of the dock. The ones we have are very old and degraded - more than 20 years old. We are replacing them with more of the same. Our dock is 10' x 10' with a 2' x 8' walkway attached. We have 4 of these floats on the main dock. I only wish they were available in more different sizes so we could support the walkway more effectively.
