Getting Started – Building Guide
1. Choose your preferred freeboard, then pick your float height, taking into consideration the height of your desired frame.
2. Next, work out the square footage of your desired dock design, and consult with the chart below.
EXAMPLE: Let’s say you’re going to build an 8ft x 20ft rectangular dock using
AP-12 floats. Your dock would be 160sq.ft, then divide by 20 (the deck
coverage number off the chart). You would require a minimum of 8 floats.
3. Place a float on each corner and spread the balance out as equally as possible.
4. Adding a ramp will require extra floatation where the ramp and dock meet, or where there is a long span of ramp that is directly over deep water.
