Galv-A-Dock Boathouse Components

 

The 4'-6", 6' and 7'-6" Top V's. One is used to connect the two half-bows together. The 4'-6" Top V's, have 3 steel slat-stamping brackets for connecting the 1 & 1/4" galvanized square steel slats. The 6' and 7'-6" Top V's, have five steel slat-stampings brackets. The 4'-6" Top V’s are used primarily for the standard 16' wide slips and the 6' and 7'-6" are used solely for the extra-wide boathouses.

 

The 9' and 10' 6" half-bows. Two used per individual bow: The 9' half-bows have five steel slat-stamping brackets for connecting the 1 & 1/4" galvanized square steel slats. The 10' 6" half bows have 6 steel slat-stamping brackets. The 9' half bows are used primarily for the standard 16' wide slips. The 10' 6" half bows are used solely for the extra-wide boathouses.

 

The Canopy Standards. Two are used to connect the assembled half-bows to the upright dock pipes. Usually one Canopy Standard has a molded plastic bumper. The exception is, there is no bumper on the inside slip corner boathouse standard, since the boat can not contact the dock, at the inside corner. The second canopy standard, (opposite side) is without a plastic bumper board. Since it covers the walkway, the boat cannot contact the walkway covered standard.

 

The 88" Canopy Brace pipes are installed between each canopy bow, 4" above the dock surface, for added structural stability, and a consistent tie fixture for the sides of the boathouse vinyl.

 

The Steel Slats are available in 2 different lengths: 16' & 1/4" long and 24' & 1/4" long. Specifications are 1 & 1/4" by 1 & 1/4" square, 18 gauge metal thickness, high tensile (extra strong) galvanized steel tubing. The 15 galvanized steel slats support members, are evenly spaced over the crown of the 16' wide boathouse. The 17 galvanized steel slats support members, are evenly spaced over the crown of the 18' wide boathouse. The galvanized light weight, high strength square steel slats have, added strength to withstand bending from the added stress when installing and removing the boathouse framework.
