Custom Docks

Port of Call Marina has been building and installing floating dock structures on the Ottawa River for 10 years now with great success. These docks need very little adjustment once in place even with the huge water level fluctations on this section of the river. Most of our customers only adjust their dock once a season after the initial installation in the spring.

We use the same steel tube in the docks that have been in the water at the marina year round every year since the spring of 2000, with the exception of winter 2007 when they were removed to be checked for damage and some hinge modification. At this time some light sand blasting was performed on some of the welds below the water line and then recoated with an epoxy coating.

The construction of these docks is heavy duty. The tubes are pressure tested, sand blasted and epoxy coated. The wood superstructure and deck are eastern white cedar coated with Australian Timber Oil which gives the wood a golden colour and lasts up to 4 years - other wood options and colors are available upon request. We can also install solar lights on the docks to supply visibility at night and help boaters see the dock in advance when returning after dark.

The longer and wider the dock, the more stable it is. Therefore we recommend 10 or 12 ft wide by 40 - 60 ft long in most applications. The location of the dock greatly influences the size. If installed in a protected area, a shorter deck will not be bounced around by the wave action. In open areas a longer dock can tame the waves better.

We would be pleased to discuss your docking needs and make recommendations by way of an onsite visit. Appointments can be made by calling the marina at 613-832-1414.

Floating Boat Lift

Custom Build, Custom Design

Call us and we can help you design

Keeping your boat on this section of the Ottawa River presents many challenges. We deal with a large fluctuation in water levels. We have sandy bottom, mud, rock and everything in between. We have areas where the water depth drops quickly and areas where the water never seems to get past your knees. Couple this the infinite variety of boats, and it becomes apparent that cookie-cutter systems don't always work. We are the Custom Design, Custom Build experts.

For pricing, call 613-832-1414 or email mark@portofcall.ca for more details.
