AccuDock®, a leading floating dock manufacturer who specializes in fabricating custom applications to meet the unique specifications required for each install, celebrated Independence Day alongside their fellow employees this past Thursday July 2nd while enjoying a BBQ that owner, John Harrison, had catered by Café Maxx in Pompano Beach, FL.
June proved to be an extremely busy month for AccuDock® having recently completed some very large high profile projects such as a large Rowing venue, naval Scaffolding Platforms, various ADA Complaint Kayak Launches, customized floating docks for Cornell University and more! The management staff felt giving everyone the chance to catch up with each other and enjoy some great BBQ was just one small way that they could say thank you to all of the hard working and dedicated team members, a number of them being military veterans themselves.
AccuDock®, who also proudly manufacturers all of their products in the US and uses only US sourced materials, is an avid supporter of a multitude of charities geared towards supporting both our active and retired service members and has shown their support in many ways such as donating a floating dock to the local DAV chapter, participating in countless events to help raise funding for a number of organizations that support the troops, and even with things as simple as purchasing red AccuDock® t-shirts for their employees who are veterans to wear on Fridays!
Jimmy, one of the many valued AccuDock® employees is a proud veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan as well as being stationed in several other remote parts of the world. When asked how his experience has been here so far at AccuDock®, explained that "All of the employees are very helpful, the manufacturing plant and all the equipment is well cared for and runs smoothly." He also touched on his interaction with the management staff and said "They gave me a chance when others didn't. They looked at my resume and read a reference letter that was submitted by one of my former superiors and didn't hold the fact that I didn't have a handful of the exact job specific skills sets that some other comparable applicants would because I spent so much time in the service."
Jimmy went on to explain that his experience as an AccuDock® employee has been much more enjoyable and conducive to a successful transition into civilian life than previous jobs he's had since ending his military career in 2012. He candidly spoke about how not having to deal with a lot of the aggravating stressors that result from a company not taking a personal interest in their employees wellbeing as well as the quality of their products, is a huge help to him in overcoming the ongoing obstacles that many veterans often face while adjusting to their new lives. As a final last endorsement of the satisfaction level he embodies from being a part of the AccuDock® team, he quipped that "Working at AccuDock® has been WAY better than any of my other previous civilian jobs!"
Details and highlights of the recent one of a kind 10 lane floating dock and two 16' x 80' low profile launch docks that were recently manufactured by AccuDock®; and installed at Nathan Benderson State Park. AccuDock®; is an international dock manufacturer located in Pompano Beach FL and is known worldwide for their ability to manufacture custom floating docks for any application and specialize in low profile rowing docks, paddle sport docks, and custom heavy duty commercial aluminum floating docks.
Nathan Benderson State Park, a 600 acre multi-use sporting venue that was recently named Florida's "Venue of the Year" by the Florida Sports Foundation, is located right off the Gulf of Mexico amongst some of the most pristine and picturesque beaches in the world.
Nathan Benderson Park is the perfect place for a wide range of sporting events and community activities such as paddle boarding, dragon boat races, canoe and kayak races, as well as triathlon and cross country events. However the the focal point of the park is its 500 acre lake and world class rowing facility complete with a 2000 meter, fully FISA compliant, rowing course, an island for spectators, and the world's only 10 lane floating dock specifically designed and manufactured by AccuDock®; to easily accommodate the large number of competitors that often participate higher profile regattas and rowing competitions.
A combination of fully framed heavy duty aluminum dock sections (with a freeboard of 16") and low profile rowing dock sections (with a freeboard of 7") for the finger docks were used to create this world class 10 lane 425' start dock. Additional features that help maximize functionality include adjustable classer planks that pivot vertically to give each individual boat holder optimum positioning for holding each shell and retractable finger docks that effortlessly slide in and out to accommodate varying shell lengths. The decision was made to deck this amazing start dock with PVC AccuDeck™ in order to match the two 16' x 80' launch docks AccuDock® had previously manufactured and installed.
SANCA President Paul Blackketter comments on this being the 1st time the US Youth Rowing Championship will be held in Florida and said, "It just goes to show you that this is a true world class course, that's only going to bring more and more events here".
Nathan Benderson State Park is already the confirmed host for a number of prestigious rowing competitions such as the 2015 Youth National Championships, which takes place this coming weekend from June 12th through the 14th, and consequently is the first time Florida will be hosting this event, ever! It was also recently announced that, for the first time in over 20 years, the World Rowing Championships, will be hosted in the United States at Nathan Benderson State Park in the Fall of 2017 and in addition, the 2018 Division I, II, and III National Collegiate Rowing Championships have also been scheduled to be hosted at Nathan Benderson Park. Suncoast Aquatic Nature tocenter Associates (SANCA), the non-profit company that manages the park on behalf of Sarasota County, will also be submitting proposals to host both the 2018 World Rowing Masters Championship as well as the World Rowing Coastal Championships.

The choice of decking is often the most important and personal decision when it comes to the design of a consumer's floating dock and AccuDock®; makes sure to offer options to satisfy every taste and install requirements. It's the first thing a person sees each time they look out onto the water at their floating dock and will be the most noticeable aspect of it for years to come. The ideal decking choice for a floating dock or platform is dependent on a variety of factors including desired use, climate, aesthetic surroundings, ecological affects, and more.
Although there are a variety of decking materials often used in the construction of floating docks, PVC Decking has quickly become the most popular decking choice for the majority of applications. PVC decking (cellular PVC) is made by whipping PVC into a lighter less dense aerated foam. The foam is then extruded to various sizes and takes on the working characteristics of real wood without all the disadvantages.
Affordable- PVC is one of the most affordable decking materials available on the market for floating docks and saves the consumer additional money due to the fact that little to no money needs to be spent on maintenance
Ease of Installation- PVC deck boards are extremely lightweight due to how they are manufactured, which makes them much easier to work with and install
Durable- PVC decking is made from completely inorganic materials, it is resistant to cracking, splintering, rotting, and warping. Mold, mildew, and insect infestation damage are also not issues of concern when using PVC decking.
Low Maintenance- You don't have to stain, paint, or apply special treatments to protect your AccuDeck decking and keep it in good condition. Debris and dirt from use can be easily cleaned off with a hose and soft wet rag. For a little tougher messes, use simple eco-friendly household cleaning products along with a hose and soft cloth.
Eco-Friendly- PVC decking is 100 percent recyclable does not add to the already overly inflated demand on natural resources.
25 Year Stain and Fade Warranty- AccuDeck™ PVC decking resists staining throughout the warranty period from standard food and beverage items found often in most households such as barbecue sauce, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, salad dressing and salad oils, grease, tea, wine, coffee, fruit punch, sodas and other food and beverage items. Standard household cleaning products and a soft cloth are recommended to be used to clean off the deck boards within a week of one of the aforementioned items being spilled on the decking. To ensure maximum durability and functionality, all install and maintenance suggestions should be followed.
Increases Aesthetic Appeal- Formulated to closely resemble real wood decking, there are slight differences in color and grain pattern from board to board, giving your floating dock the beauty and feel of nature with the strength and durability of synthetic materials.
Improved safety- the deep wood texture of AccuDeck™ decking created a safe non-slip surface while also having a much higher resistance to fire than organic wood decking.
ICC Code Approved- CCRR-0141

Floating dock attachment methods are the most important, yet overlooked, aspect of floating docks. The AccuDock®; sales, engineering, and design team is extremely knowledgeable in all the variations of attachment methods and has extensive experience in creating customized solutions to meet every need!
The attachment method and quality of its construction directly affects the durability, stability, and functionality of each floating dock. There are a number of factors that our AccuDock®; sales and engineering professionals consider when determining which attachment method would be best suited for each dock. Such factors include whether there is anything to attach to, the depth of water, the distance the dock will reside from the shore, water level fluctuations, wind and wave action, expected loads, configuration, and more!
Clearly, there are many variables that are considered in determining the most effective attachment method for each floating dock, which is why we highly recommend consulting with an AccuDock®; sales professional prior to making any decisions regarding the purchase of a floating dock and/or determining an attachment methods.
***Following (in red) is a link to a PDF table that the AccuDock®; Engineering and Design team put together that succinctly explains the various AccuDock®; floating dock attachments and the scenarios each would be used in.

Here at AccuDock®;, we pride ourselves on being able to fully understand our clients' visions, integrate the proper engineering principles into that vision, and then manufacture a floating dock that provides value and exceeds performance expectations without compromising strength or functionality. This January, Marine Engineer (Chris Dibiasio), was added to the AccuDock®; team to provide each client with a professional insurance that their customized floating dock project remains structurally sound and properly secured once installed as designed. Since being hired, Chris has already made significant contributions to the AccuDock®; value proposition and his friendly, approachable, and dedicated personality has enabled him to gel seamlessly with the management and manufacturing staff as well as with our valued customers.
Chris is now, one of three Massachusians, among the office staff here in Pompano Beach, FL, and is extremely happy to be a part of the AccuDock®; team, FAR away from the endless snowfall the remainder of his family is having to endure, in his hometown of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. No doubt, Chris is the envy of his three siblings and parents, who all still reside in the North East. I am sure the endless pictures Chris shares with his family of himself and his girlfriend, in their spare time, enjoying the gorgeous Florida Sunshine while surfing, laying out at the beach, biking down A1A, or one of the many other outdoor activities he fills his weekends with, sure doesn't help... but hey, can you blame him?!
Since moving to South Florida in 2009, Chris has been completely committed to pursuing his goal of becoming a Marine Engineer and graduated from the Florida Institute of Technology (Melbourne, FL) in May of 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Ocean Engineering. Chris then relocated to Boca Raton to pursue his Master of Ocean Engineering degree and jumped into a fast track program that allowed him to graduate within a year and a half and earn his M.S. in Ocean Engineering in December of last year.
In addition to being academically inclined, Chris has also attained a significant amountof experience through completing several summer internship stints at a marine engineering firm called Seascan located in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Seascan specializes in designing and manufacturing underwater instrumentation used for a wide variety of diagnostic and research projects. Throughout the two summers spent at Seascan, Chris' main responsibility was to design and draft individual components of the marine diagnostic and research instruments Seascan manufactured and create CAD drawings of them in Solid Works.
Some of the responsibilities Chris will be assuming here at AccuDock®; are as follows:
We are extremely excited about the addition of Chris to the AccuDock®; team and are already seeing results of the significant positive impact Chris has had and will continue to have on the overall design, engineering, and production of AccuDock®; Floating Dock Solutions.
