Skip the Barge
Lots of paperwork with the state environmental department... A huge pile driving barge parked out in front of your house for a month... And a massive bill to go with it. Skip the extra nonsense. By using our anchor post system to secure your floating docks, you can SIGNIFICANTLY cut down on both cost and permitting for your floating dock. If a barge drives a pile, the structure is permanent (even if it gets wrecked by hurricane weather or northern ice). When our anchor posts are used, the system is considered removable, even if it's only installed once forever and always.
The trick is all in the sand augers outfitted to the bottom of the dock posts. Float the dock to its location, release the poles from the upright position, and let them drop to the floor. From there, stick a screw driver or rigid rod through the pre-drilled holes in the top end of the pipe and crank them down into the sand. You'll be amazed at how quickly they bury themselves and how far down they get. Augers work great in sand/mud/silt/clay, but obviously won't go through rocks, at which point you should contact Bestmade to discuss alternate anchoring options.
Have a hurricane coming in and concerned about tidal surge? Have to take your docks out every season because your lake freezes? No problem. Just reverse process and screw the sand augers back out, lock them in the upright position, and float them to shore.
