BEST: WAHOO ALUMINUM DOCKS
Wahoo Docks is the top aluminum dock manufacturer in the world with many components being patented and/or proprietary.
There are some who have tried to imitate pieces and/or parts of the Wahoo aluminum dock but none can completely match Wahoo's tooling, engineering, and superior composition.
- Are designed by engineers to exacting specifications
- Have a heavy-duty construction with more aluminum than other competitors' docks
- Are breathtakingly beautiful with sharp details and finishing touches that complement the strength and aesthetic of the dock
- Is the only aluminum dock manufacturer that can provide the industry leading CAT3 and CAT5 aluminum docks
The Wahoo boat dock is a built with a combination of welded and bolted construction—making it much stronger than any other “all welded” aluminum dock being built.
We dare you to compare the Wahoo aluminum boat dock to any other boat dock on the market. Not only is it the best aluminum dock for the money, it is also the best dock available with the least amount of maintenance required too!
BETTER: GALVANIZED STEEL DOCKS
A galvanized steel boat dock will save you a little bit of money but will require some maintenance and will begin to rust over a period of time.
This type of dock is usually considered a mid-grade dock but in actuality, often comes with the price of a no-maintenance aluminum dock.
There are many different types of galvanized steel docks on the market so be sure that if this is something you are interested in, you do your homework. This dock will have a longer life than that of a painted steel dock which is the least expensive dock on the market.
☆ GOOD: PAINTED STEEL DOCKS
If you are looking to save money on a dock, then a painted steel dock might be the right option for you.
While the painted steel boat dock does come with a price tag much less than that of an aluminum dock, just be aware - it also comes with a lot of maintenance. Painted steel docks will usually start to show their age within a couple of months of being installed. Painted steel docks also usually come with a lower grade of dock decking, a factor that helps to keep the end price low.
You will save money going the route of a painted steel boat dock. Just keep in mind that you will also spend a lot of time maintaining this dock when you could be spending that time enjoying the lake with your family.
