If you have a boat dock and a family to look after, dock safety is probably one of your top concerns. Doing more for your family’s safety than using caution and keeping an eye on them could be as simple as adding a few dock accessories to your waterfront!
The importance of sufficient, quality lighting on your dock can’t be overstated. Even if you never intend to use your dock when sunlight isn’t in full force, things happen and you should be prepared. A well lighted dock will be better protected from accidents with other boaters using the water way at night.
Solar lights are your best and work in most circumstances. Make sure you reference a good guide when you install the lights to guarantee proper placement, or consult a professional!
If your dock is used by swimmers, boaters, or people enjoying other water activities, a ladder is a key safety accessory. It will make your dock easier to use and safer in both emergency and everyday situations.
- Corner Sections:
If you have one or more slips or any ninety degree angles on your dock, a corner section is a smart dock accessory to consider for safety. Adding corner sections will discourage people from jumping the corners, which can be dangerous, and it will give you more room to move on the dock.
These dock upgrades are quick and easy, but they can make a big impact on improved safety. If you have any questions about these dock accessories or your family’s safety around the water, give us a call today!
