While the Sunshine State is famed for its gorgeous coastline, there are over 12,000 miles of rivers, streams, and canals to explore. Whether you love getting out for a day of fishing, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, or simply enjoying a trip on a lazy river, there is no shortage of exciting opportunities. If you’re lucky enough to have a slice of riverfront property, the best docks for rivers make taking advantage of those opportunities much more accessible and convenient. So what are the best options?
What to Look for in River Docks
When purchasing a dock, one of the first – and most important – questions is whether to opt for a fixed/permanent model or a floating dock. When it comes to rivers, the answer is clear: floating docks all the way! Why? Rivers are in a constant state of flux in terms of water levels. A big rainstorm or a dry spell can significantly change depth. Floating docks accommodate for these fluctuations.
They are also far more suitable for situations in which the surface under the water is rocky, uneven, or more “mucky,” as is often the case with rivers.
Another benefit that floating river docks deliver is that they are easily installed and removed. You can put your dock up with minimal fuss (not the case when building a permanent dock!), and if you must move it to prepare for the change of season or the coming of a storm, it’s easy to disassemble, move, and store until you need it again.
Note: With AccuDock’s high-quality construction, you can leave your floating dock right in place in the winter. Your dock will weather the winter weather just fine.
