The boat dock layout, also known as the dock footprint, is one of the most important decisions you will make concerning your new aluminum floating dock. Generally, this decision will be determined by your boating and recreational needs.
A waterfront property owner who owns a boat or personal watercraft may opt for dock that allows the boat / PWC to pull into an opening in the dock called a “dock slip“. This is not only convenient, it is also specifically purposed in form and function to protect the boat / craft.
Through the addition of dock bumpers and dock poles, you can expand that protection. There are several anchoring methods available for single slip docks and the boat dock itself can be covered, uncovered, or a combination. For covered single slip docks, you will have a choice of dock roof style—gable roof, hip roof, or sundeck shade (upper deck roof). You can then further personalize your single slip boat dock with your choice of dock decking, by adding a ladder, dive platform, kayak rack, or other dock accessories and/or finishing touches.
