Do you already own a boat, or are you dreaming of making that big purchase?
Did you know that there are lots of accessories available that can not only make your boating experience more enjoyable, but also protect your investment?
At Alumi-Span, we offer a variety of unique dock accessories that add convenience and function to your boat dock. In addition, most of the accessories we sell are items that we manufacture designed around our boat dock system.
We believe in giving you the highest quality materials to make your boating experience the best it can be!
If you’re still waffling about making that big purchase, try asking yourself these questions before going shopping:
- What will you use your boat for? According to The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), the top reasons people buy a boat are fishing, cruising, and sailing. To save money, buy the simplest, cheapest boat for your use.
- Do you really have time to enjoy your boat? Avoid purchasing a large boat if you think you’ll only be able to enjoy it once a month. If you love boating but don’t have a lot of time for it, consider renting.
- Think you need a bigger boat? The NMMA says that ninety-five percent of U.S. boats on the water are 26 feet or less. Consider how many passengers you want to carry, and if you need room for just cocktail hour for friends, sleeping quarters, or simply a place to sit as you fish. Remember, the bigger the boat, the larger your cost is to operate.
- Where will you keep the boat? The bigger the boat, the larger and stronger the trailer and car or truck you’ll need to pull it. Additionally, as size increases, you may find yourself needing to extend your boat dock, or get additional permits.
Once you’ve asked yourself these questions, it’s time for the fun part – shopping! Once you buy your boat, make sure to call Alumi-Span for all your boating and dock accessories!
We can help you install a great boat dock that will protect your investment by keeping your boat scratch and dent-free. To find out more about our accessories including dock lighting, stairs and steps, and boat dock bumpers, visit our website!
