Boat Dock Additions
Custom crafted by us, to make your dock your own.
If you have a boat or PWC, the ease and safety of a lift is essential. Flotation Systems offers a range of ways to keep your vessel dry, clean, and secure.
For stationary docks, we can provide mounting and materials for overhead lifts. Your lift will be installed when your dock is constructed on-site. For floating docks, we offer the even weight distribution of tank-style lifts that connect at four points inside the slip.
Personal watercraft lifts are available as overhead lifts for stationary docks and drive-on lifts for floating docks. Each installation is different, based on brand and style of lift you select. Your Flotation Systems dealer will be happy to help you select the right lift for your needs.
Designed exclusively for Flotation Systems’ hip roof, gable roof, and sundeck combo docks, these overhangs provide more roof coverage without increasing the dock footprintare ideal for personal watercraft protection and additional dock coverage from sun and weather, all while adding nothing to the dock footprint.
Ideal for locations where the square footage of your dock is limited, the overhangs extend beyond the usual roof and dock edges, keeping the sun and weather at bay. Overhangs are available in a variety of lengths and in all of our roof colors. Ask your Flotation Systems dealer for more details.
Our slip fill-ins are designed to convert unused slips into useful space for seating or personal watercraft storage. Used in multi-slip docks that only need one slip now, a fill-in is the perfect way to maximize your space while keeping your dock ready until the slip is needed.
Fill-ins are available for any size Flotation Systems slip, and are custom-made to suit your application. The slip can be entirely enclosed, or space can be left—as a 45-degree “V” or square end—in the fill-in for smaller watercraft docking.
Slip fill-ins are installed when the dock scan be installed during initial dock installation or at a later date. Stable and beautiful, each fill-in looks and acts as part of the dock, featuring the same LockDry decking used on the regular platform. When you add a boatready, the fill-in can be removed and your dock converted to part or full slip capacity.
Please note that our slip fill-ins are not intended for repeated installation and removal.
