Floating Dock for Kayaks, Canoes, KaBoats, etc.

Styrofoam dock for small watercrafts. Easily park your kayak, canoe, dinghy, KaBoat or small dinghy on a water.

New V2.0 now comes in heavy-duty dark gray 1.5mm PVC, compare to 0.5mm PVC old blue version.

This is a new product we have invented with a purpose to provide affordable docking solution for owners of kayaks, canoes, KaBoats, small inflatable boats and other small and light watercrafts, as well as work float platform. New 2020 model made from thicker and heavier 1.5mm PVC dark gray fabric with non-skid surface.

Docking platform is provided in a form of heavy-duty outer shell container 8'x4'x8" made of tarpaulin PVC material. Customer can fill out this container with 4 (four) panels of Styrofoam or any other foam insulations sheets that are sold in many hardware stores, such as Home Depot or Loews. Outer shell has long and narrow opening to insert 8'x4'x2" foam panels one by one, and then securely lock it with Velcro. Styrofoam sheets NOT included.

Each dock comes with 4 D-rings installed at its edges, that can be used to secure watercraft to the dock, Docking platform dimensions and details. secure dock to anchor or stationary object, or to join several docking platforms together to form larger size docks. For example, 1 dock will provide enough support for 1-person kayak or canoe or up to 9' long inflatable boat or 15' KaBoat. For longer boats and larger kayaks, customers might use 2 docks joined together via D-rings and rope. You can add as many dock platforms as you need.

Docking platform with 4 Styrofoam sheet inside is rigid enough for small watercrafts. Additional plywood layer can be bolted through foam layers to make this dock suitable for heavier Jet Ski. Rollers, caster wheels and even trailer winch can be bolted on top of heavy-duty plywood to make pulling easier.

Original idea of that platform was to provide cheap and disposable docking for one season, so that at the end of Summer customer can remove Styrofoam from dock and dispose it until next season. However, after we tested this platform for almost 2 years in a salty water, under damaging Florida sun, it is apparent that platform is really heavy-duty contraption, and can withstand at least several years of continues use.

QUICK TIP: Dock fabric suppose to be tight when foam fully inserted into it. To make Styrofoam block insertion easier, spray it with water or mix of water and shampoo or soap or dishwasher detergent. That will make insertions easier. You can also cut a little bit of Styrofoam block if needed. Do NOT push Styrofoam sheets inside dock with an excessive force, as that might rip off seams, which will not be covered by warranty. If needed, cut edges of Styrofoam sheets to make insertion easier.

This was an easy project that gives you a useable dock on a budget. I did trim about two inches off the last piece to make it for easily. Like everyone else, lots of water and dish soap in a spray bottle and assemble in warm to to hot weather helps a lot. Lay the cover on the sun before starting. I did tear the pocket a little so be patient. I fixed/reinforced the pocket with a little flex tape when I was done. I now store my Achilles 290 inflatable on top of the dock in my ocean slip.

Much easier to use three 2"x4'x8' sheets and then finish with one 1 1/2"x4'x8' sheet. All available at home depot, R-Tech. I don't see how I was getting four 2" bys in there. Plus, cutting 2" off the long sides wasn't just a suggestion. I think its mandatory. At least on the cold day I did it. And by all means, its not possible without soapy spray solution. That makes it doable by myself. All that said, my 10' Westmarine R10 fits perfectly on top and easy to haul it up.

Just received the new and improved Dock envelope! When you first see it opened you think to yourself there’s no way that 4, 2 inch panels of insulation will fit but I put the dock in the sun, lubricated it generously with dish soap and water and with the absolute help of a second pair of hands, we finished the process in about 30 minutes. It fits perfectly and looks like a custom dock! I will also try wrapping a gray, cheap PVC tarp around the dock to inhibit growth on the bottom. My dock neighbor has had his in the water nonstop for three years and absolutely swears by it! Thanks for the product… I will be ordering another one!

This floating dock container is a clever idea and a godsend to those who have a medium weight boat but no lift to keep it out of seawater. I used the white foam from HD and liquid soap from the Dollar Store to help ease the sheets into the envelope. Patience and two sets of hands helps. I had to shave off about 1/2 inch along the side of the last sheet in order to get it in. Used heat knife from Harbor Freight to do this cleanly (good for cutting nylon rope too). I am on the west coast of Florida and crud grows very rapidly on items left in the water so I am trying a simple mode to help make life easier for routine cleaning (an idea I got from a boat show). Barnacles and other marine growth needs regular replenishment of new water with oxygen and nutrients. I wrapped a tarp on the underside of the floating dock and brought it up each side, folding the corners and taping down. If water does not circulate over the base of the dock I am hoping I will just need to dispose of the tarp (and all the attached crud) every six months and replace it with a new one at a cost of less than $10 from HF. HF also have some nifty tarp grips so you can fold the tarp to the right size before lashing it in place. This might not work but worth the try?

Seems to be well-made, heavy duty PVC with well anchored D rings. We bought 4 sheets of 4x8' 2" poly covered styrofoam from Home Depot. It was a struggle to fit the sheets in, particularly the first sheet as the side pockets and bottom don't have flaps and the sheets hung up and the edges curled up. We used some soap and water, but it didn't help much. Some side flaps on the pocket would of made a big difference. Otherwise it seems like a pretty good product, we'll see how long it lasts in salt water, I'm hoping for 2-3 seasons.

Great size, solid quality and at a really affordable price.

I bought one of these floating docks almost two years ago to use with my kayak. It has been in salt water ever since, with the exception of about a month when I took it out to clean it and remove barnacles. The dock looks and works the same as the day I put it in the water. This product is a winner!

Super easy and convenient. I have a 5 person alum bottom rib dinghy with a 10 HP 4-stroke motor. I can stand on the float, lift the bow of the dinghy chest height, back up, and it's more than halfway on the float. Then I just drag it the rest of the way on. Easy to launch also. No more bottom cleaning, no more corrosion.

I purchased (2) 4x8 shells and filled each of them with (4) 2" x 4" x 8" sheets of Polyurethane, which are very dense and will not hold water. I then used steel cable to hook the two together to make (1) 8' x 8' floating dock. I keep my 10' Zodiac on top of it as it is easy to pull it up and push it off of the dock. It is also very stable to walk on. GREAT PRODUCT!!

A few plumbing supplies from local Home Depot, and now I have a great cost effective tethered floating dock.
