Depending on when you purchased or reinstalled a new dock, you might find that you’re not able to do as much with your current setup as you wanted.

Adding on sections to your dock is easy thanks to the Station Boat Dock sections you can purchase on Tommy Docks. For a quick and easy guide to expanding your dock setup, let’s chat about adding sections to your stationary dock floats.

What is a Stationary Boat Dock Section

A stationary boat dock section is the best way to expand your dock without buying a brand new setup. That said, not all boat docks are built to expand. Tommy Docks floating stationary docks are designed to easily expand thanks to sections you can purchase and add on. That’s a great reason to explore the complete boat dock kits offered by Tommy Docks, but we’ll save that talk for another time.

The best way to expand your floating dock is to add a floating dock section to your current setup. The best way to go about this is to ensure that you’re matching material and finish to your current dock. Many options on Tommy Docks should fit your needs if you don’t have one of our complete dock hardware kits, but that’s okay. As long as you have a floating dock, don’t hesitate to explore options for dock sections you can add to your current property. 

Why Add On to your Dock with Additional Sections

Docks are obviously the best way to get on and off your property and the water. That said, there are other benefits to adding sections to your floating dock. Firstly, you’ll need to consider the fact that docks are the most obvious choice for storing watercraft equipment. There are a lot of other options for keeping your boats, jet skis, and other vehicles safe, but parking your equipment on a dock is the most logical option for using it often. 

Additionally, dock sections that expand your space give you more room to do more on the dock than get on and off the water. There are a lot of people who don’t see docks as a means to get on a boat but a place to enjoy the water without having to embark off-property. With more dock sections, you’re able to ensure that you have ample room to host guests for sunbathing, fishing, and other activities without everyone being too close to each other. 

Lastly, a major advantage of expanding your dock with additional sections is to improve the look of your dock. A simple, straight dock isn’t all that appealing to the eye. Adding on an L-shape or other configurations help you maximize your property and ensure that your dock looks its best.
