How long will it take to get our new EZ Dock?

All EZ Dock products are in-stock and ready to be delivered. Most docks can be delivered and installed right away so you can begin enjoying your dock immediately.

Can the dock be installed, or will I have to do it myself?

EZ Dock can deliver and install your dock for you. You can also install it yourself. Most docks can be installed in a day or two with just you and a helper.

What special tools are required to install EZ Dock?

A coupler installation tool is the only special tool that you will need to assemble the EZ Dock sections. A hammer, ratchet, 15/16″ socket, coupler socket tool (provided with couplers), and a phillips head screwdriver is all it takes. Consider the fact that the EZ Dock design eliminates up to 60% of the components that other manufactured dock systems need for assembly. It takes only one connection point to make twenty feet of EZ Dock, versus up to seven connection points on ordinary systems. It really is simple and EZ! And, the sections can be assembled on land or in the water.

What is inside of EZ Dock sections?

The EZ Dock one-piece sections contain no fillers or foam for floatation. Their uniquely engineered design forms chambers that displace water and trap air for buoyancy.

How hot does EZ Dock get under the summer sun?

The light color of EZ Dock helps keep the deck surfaces cooler than just about any other deck surface. Shade Structures can always be added to EZ Dock.

Safety Tips For Recreational Boating

Shelby boatIn the United States, there are more than 11 million registered boats. In most cases, boating experiences are positive and create lasting memories. However, even the most enjoyable times can easily become deadly once boaters fail to become vigilant about boat safety at all times.

One of these three things may happen once a good day on the water becomes tragic, as per the U.S. Coast Guard:

  1. A boat capsizes
  2. A boat passenger falls overboard
  3. A boat accidentally hits an object or another boat.

In 2017 alone, there were 4,291 boating accidents reported by the U.S. Coast Guard. In this figure, 658 involved deaths, 2,629 involved injuries and around $46 million worth of damage to property.

If you want your personal water craft to last for several years, you need to maintain it regularly and provide it with its much needed TLC. If you don’t do this, then there’s nothing you can really do but stick it on the boat dock or trailer until next time. You might have fun now but that won’t last a long time for sure.

Do you want to enjoy your investment for the years to come? Listed here are five maintenance tips that can help extend the life of your watercraft.

Break The Engine In Correctly

Although it is quite tempting to push that throttle and tear your way across the lake using all the power that your new PWC can give. This kind of tough, arduous effort, is not what your personal water craft needs during the early phases of its life. As a matter of fact, this kind of high speed use could actually shorten your engine’s lifespan.

Your craft needs a proper break in period. Avoiding extended drag runs and varying speeds are involved when it comes to breaking in the engine. Generally, that means you have to practice patience as well as self-control. Keep off the throttle for now and you will reap the rewards later. The components would wear in and then polish on their own, creating those important tolerances that will surely give you performance benefits down the road.
