Floating dock sections have a 7” height above the water, one inch draft and total of 8” in thickness. It is important with Kayak docks that the dock does not have a height above the water more than 8”- as it makes it more difficult to exit the kayak. Allows 3 or more kayaks to be launch simultaneously.
