Dock Construction

The backbone of every Eagle Bay Dock is the rectangular shape pontoons that are fabricated by a certified local welding shop that has been fabricating pontoons for over 20 years. Each pontoon is made from 1/8” marine grade 5052 aluminum and all structural components are made from 6061 aluminum. Each pontoon has sealed chamber compartments inside, the longer the pontoon the more sealed compartments. The pontoons are connected via welding using tubular tubing for ribs, this type of construction is similar to that of a pontoon boat, but stronger. Each pontoon has 24” 2000 lb capacity wheels used for beaching , or launching the dock. The average size dock weighs approximately 1800 lbs.

Sunwalk 90 decking is used for the ultimate in safety, maintenance free, comfort and environmental protection, the panels are light weight but add structural strength and allow the storms waters to pass through, thus preventing stress on the dock, ramp and cable.

Every dock is made with the high quality components, all fasteners are stainless steel, all hardware is made in Canada, USA and Europe, nothing has been compromised to save a few dollars. One of the favorite features of an Eagle Bay Dock are the vertical bumpers spaced evenly and installed along the total length of each pontoon. These are high density formed bumpers, built to last, that will protect your watercrafts finish from contact with the dock.

The beauty of the rectangular pontoon design is that the outside wall is flat, preventing the watercraft from dipping underneath the dock structure and damaging the watercrafts finish, unlike a float design dock. This design basically requires no boat fenders and can accommodate any sized watercraft. Standard features on every dock are 8” flip down cleats, umbrella stand, locking cable clamp system and stand off flip up ladder.
