Alumi-Span Docks Shares Essential Tips for an Accident Free Dock

PITTSFORD, Mich. - Michimich -- Are you concerned about the safety of your boat dock?

Have you ever had a dock mishap?

If you own a boat, you know better than anyone how unpredictable the water and weather can be. Thankfully, there are plenty of things you can do to ensure the safety and security of your boat dock.

Go slow when docking. It's easier to control your boat when going slow. Hitting your dock with your boat can cause damage to both, and the damage will get worse the faster you go.

Use boat dock bumpers. Bumpers absorb shock, which protects your dock and boat. Shock absorption also helps protect your passengers.

Use quality materials. Testing costs a manufacturer money, so if you buy cheap materials they're much less likely to have been safety tested.

Install lights. Keeping your boat dock well-lit during low-light hours can prevent boat crashes, slips and falls on the dock, and other risks that come with reduced vision.

Frequently clean and inspect dock. Catching issues before they become a serious threat not only protects the people using your dock, and prevents costly repairs.

Anchor or store loose items. Anchor down things like seating and tables, or store them when not in use. This will help prevent objects from getting tossed around in rough weather, which can damage both them and the dock.
