Seaco Marine makes modular, floating dock kits and swim raft kits. The dock kits come in sizes ranging from 6' x 16' to 8' x 16' (nice and wide) and the swim rafts are 8' or 10' square. All component parts are hot dipped galvanized and come complete with floats, hardware and easy to follow plans and blueprints. You supply the lumber
– 2x6 decking and 2x8 headers and stringers. They use foam-filled, polyethylene floats made from recycled plastic bottles.
DOCK KIT CATALOGS
Seaco provides a drilling template in their kit to pre-drill holes through the wood so the dock sections can be easily assembled like an erector set. They will send you the blueprint and template ahead of time if you want to precut and pre-drill the wood prior to receiving the actual dock kit hardware.
In planning one of these dock systems, you may want to consider a ramp that would go from the shoreline to the floating sections of dock. Ramp and additional dock sections connect using unique hinge assemblies. If your location encounters strong winds, currents or waves, corner anchor connectors are available that allow you to anchor the end of the dock.
A standard 6' x 16' dock kit is about $662
– lumber and freight extra. A ramp kit to fit that dock section is about $515
– lumber and freight extra. The 8 ft. x 8 ft. swim raft kit is $507
– lumber and freight extra. Freights costs add about 10% or so to the price of the dock kits.
They also carry a wide variety of dock accessories like ladders, cleats, mooring whips, boat bumpers and marker buoys. They are located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
