If floating dock permits are costly where you live, you’ll be happy to know that all of our floating docks can be registered as a U.S. Coast Guard Approved boat and fully insurable as a vessel. If you are having trouble getting permits to install a dock, find out if you can legally park a boat in front of your waterfront property. If so, licensing one of our docks as a boat could be just the break you have been looking for. Note: we have several customers that have completely avoided permit fees because their dock is licensed as a boat. Better yet, several live on lakes that do not permit docks at all–problem solved!
A 10HP outboard will push this barge about 4 mph. With the tiny electric outboard shown here, the dock went about 1 mph. Transoms are available in our accessories section with options for several motor sizes. If you install a motor to your dock you will be able to move it out into deep water and use it for a swim platform or just put around the lake like a regular boat.
