DRIVE ON DOCK BLOCKS FOR V-HULL BOATS, PONTOON BOATS & PWC'S
Drive On Docks Blocks make it easy to get your boat in and out of the water. Custom configurations can be created to support boats up to 12,000lbs and are customizable to any shape your boat requires. Drive On Dock Blocks work well for bay boats, center consoles, fishing boats, pontoons, pwc's, power catamarans, Craigcats, rigid inflatables, skiffs, flat bottom boats, kayaks and canoes. This system is flexible to fit perfectly at your home or in a marina boat slip, and you can always add more blocks if you get another boat.

When designing a system for your boat, you will mainly use four components to create the main platform layout. The number of components will be determined by the desired layout.
Full Floater - 19.2" x 19.2" x 16.2" individual block. These are the blocks that will be used the most to create your drive on platform. They are 100% HDPE and have a non-slip surface on the top side. The blocks are availble in the color gray and green and have connection loops on all four sides and a weight capacity of 220 lbs per full floater.
Half Floater- 19.2" x 19.2" x 10.8" individual block. The Half Floaters are rouhly 6" shorter than the Full Floater and are used where the center of the hull will rest with a standard hull boat and under each toon with a pontoon. They can also used as a complete lower platform for a tritoon or tri-hull design. They also work well for rowing teams, kayaks and canoes. The half blocks are also available in gray or green.
Connecting Pin - The name says it all....these are used to connect each block together. The connecting pins have two holes at the top, which are used to lock or unlock the pin during installation or removal. The Assembly Tool uses these holes and makes installation, removal or redesign much easier.
Strengthening Bars - The outer edge of the Drive On Blocks system is tied together with strengthening bars. This ties the outside edge of the blocks together. The right end of the protective bar is placed on top of the floater tongue and the left end of the protective bar then goes on the bottom of the tongue of the floater to the left. A plastic bolt and nut is then added when aligned to secure bar.
HOW TO DETERMINE WHAT YOU NEED
The easiest way to design your drive on platform is to is to start with the overall length and width of your boat. If you take the length of your boat in feet and multiply that times 12. This will give you the length of your boat in inches. Now take the length of your boat in inches and divide it by 19.2" and the result will be the number of blocks needed to create the necessary length platform for your boat. Then do the same thing for the width and determine the number of blocks needed. You can now multiply the length of blocks needed by the width of blocks needed to determine the total number of blocks needed to create your platform.
You will also need to let us know how many Half Floaters your design will require. If you purchase them directly off our website, simply use the drop down to inform us how many of your ordered blocks will need to be Half Floaters. All blocks come with necessary hardware.
Drive On Blocks are over 50% stronger than leading competitive products due to our patented connecting system and extra strength construction. Made of High-Density Polyethylene, a thick and durable plastic, our blocks are nearly twice as thick as the leading competitor. Our denser material provides more stability and prevent bowing, bending, and breaking.
Our Material Thickness - .3000"
Leading Competitor - .1700"
The patented technology offered for the floating Drive On Blocks has pins that lock 2 blocks together, providing up to 200 lbs of support for each plastic floating block. Each block of the floating boat docking system measures roughly 19.2 inches long by 19.2 inches wide by 16.5 inches deep. This unique connecting system reduces pressure on pins.
The easiest and recommended way to secure your system to a dock, landing or in a slip is to use 1/2” braided nylon rope attached to 2 or more Dock Block cleats. Extra strength cleats can be added to each system so docking is a breeze.
In order to sink the last/entry side row of blocks, during installation simply use a garden hose to fill each block in the 1st row with water, being sure to remove all air. Install and tighten the bung plug so water will not escape.
Reversing Winch - A reversing winch kit is available that assist in pulling the boat back into the water from the platform. It is easy to power onto the platform, but some boats need a little help getting back off the platform. It is mainly the I/O's that need a little assistance getting off the platform, and the reversing winch works well.
Inner Guide Set - includes mounting hardware.
Outer Guide Set - includes mounting hardware.
Stabilizing Beam - recommended for wide layouts to help distribute the weight.
Cleats - The cleats are important and are used to tie the unit into place to a dock, landing or in a slip. Each is installed on the outer edge anywhere two Strengthening Bars come together and replace the plastic bolt that would normally be used to hold the bars together and uses the nut.
