Marinas Answer Questions about Dockage Offers and Dock Infrastructure

Dockage Offerings The survey asked facilities what type of dockage they offered, including transient, month-to-month, seasonal and annual. Fewer facilities offered month-to-month dockage, compared to transient, seasonal and annual dockage, which were offered by around three-quarters of facilities. Annual dockage was offered by the largest majority (78%). The regional results for each type of dockage did vary significantly. For transient dockage, a much smaller number of facilities in the Midwest had transient docks, compared to the other regions. (See Fig. 1A.)

Acrylic Polymer Coating

Acryfin® Coatings is an acrylic polymer coating that removes the need for replacement or regular staining or painting, while extending the life of decks, docks and concrete. Distributed by Atlantic Distributors LLC of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, Acryfin is a VOC free, green certified product that creates a durable, non-skid, splinter free surface. The coating is expertly applied and takes about eight hours to dry. It comes with a 10-year warranty. Acryfin differs from other deck coatings because it is developed with more polymers, resin and fluorine. In addition, the Primer used in applications bonds to the substrate as well as providing a surface on which the product can adhere.
