This product made it so easy to build our Dock
These floats are just the thing you need if building a floating dock. We used them on the sides of our 10' x 16' floating dock. These floats make it so easy to build a floating dock. They are sturdy and give the dock complete support. We got 10 people on our dock and didn't even feel it unsteady at any time.

Awesome floats
I ordered 10 of these floats for a 6 foot by 20 foot floating dock. They work great and have a nice built in bumper for the boat side of the dock. I would highly recommend these for anyone rebuilding a floating dock

    this product has great features
    i own a BF-1 bumper float dock and i love it. i live on a lake in northern MN and the water level changes frequently. dock is always at the right level. it is very durable. it freezes in during the winter and it does not hurt it. i highly recommend it.
