Rowing Start Docks
AccuDock’s legacy in the rowing world is one that is deeply rooted in passion, innovation, and a commitment to excellence. For years, we have partnered with some of the most prestigious rowing clubs, regattas, and championships worldwide, earning a reputation for delivering solutions that surpass expectations. Our dedication to the sport of rowing goes beyond the manufacturing of floating start docks; we are an integral part of enhancing the rowing experience and promoting its growth.
Safety First for Rowers
When it comes to hosting a major rowing event, safety is paramount. Rowers must be able to enter and exit their shells with ease and confidence. AccuDock’s start dock platforms are designed with this crucial aspect in mind. The customizable nature of these docks allows event organizers to cater to the specific needs of the participants, ensuring that the rowing experience is not only challenging but also safe.
The non-skid decking used on our start docks not only enhances the visual appeal but also maintains the essential low-profile aspect of rowing docks. With a 5″ freeboard off the water, rowers can focus on their performance without unnecessary distractions or safety concerns.
The AccuDock Advantage: What Sets Us Apart
- Custom Design: No two rowing venues are the same, and we understand the importance of tailoring the start dock to your specific venue requirements. Our design experts work closely with event organizers to create a start dock that seamlessly integrates into the overall layout.
- Adaptability: Rowing events often come with specific lane marking requirements. Whether you need 6 or 10 lanes, AccuDock’s start docks can be quickly and easily adapted to meet these requirements, ensuring that the event runs smoothly and efficiently.
- Unmatched Stability: AccuDock’s start docks are renowned for their stability, which is a result of our unique manufacturing process. We place a strong emphasis on safety, and our docks provide a secure platform for rowers, allowing them to focus on their performance.
- User-Friendly: We have incorporated a multi-roller design system with a locking mechanism on each retractable finger, making it easy for rowers and event staff to use the start docks with confidence.
Nathan Benderson Park: A Testament to Excellence
One of our most remarkable projects is the 10-lane floating start dock at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota, Florida. This world-class facility, located on the sunny west coast of Florida, has earned a reputation for hosting a wide range of prestigious rowing events. AccuDock had the honor of fabricating a 10-lane, 425′ long start dock, the first of its kind in the world.
This state-of-the-art floating dock features ten 4′ x 60′ retractable finger docks and adjustable starting gate platforms. These platforms pivot to provide the ideal positioning for each boat holder, ensuring a fair and competitive start for all participants. The stability of the dock is guaranteed by four 45′ heavy-duty aluminum control arms and an 8′ x 25′ access ramp. Additionally, AccuDock installed five 16′ x 80′ launch docks, each made easily accessible by 8′ x 40′ aluminum ramps. This project is a testament to our unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence in the field of rowing.
