Airboat Docking Solutions

Post by Duece » Mon Dec 02, 2019 7:18 pm

Hey guys, I've got a place where I cannot pull up on the hill to keep the boat (too rocky). I keep the boat at a dock, but docking an airboat sucks and a dock beats the crap out of the cage and the sides of the boat, especially in rough weather. I've seen a couple of boats around me that are using something that looks like floating blocks to pull their boats up on (they are also airboats). I've never seen this offered for airboats, but it looked pretty neat. It was like dry loading them but if floated next to the dock. Has anyone seen anything like this or know where to purchase? Thanks.

I made a custom one here in Ft Laud for a guy who ran his jetboat on top not cheap but was real nice and functional, you can make em as tall of as low as needed depending on weight or just how high or low you want it to sit. About 3k complete
