Hotwoods 612 all aluminum dock

Hotwoods 612 all aluminum dock shown with 12' aluminum walkway and seawall bridge with threshold ramp.

Hotwoods aluminum docks can be ordered with the walkway attached to the end as shown above or to the side, to form a T shape, depending on what your needs may be.

Like all our Hotwood's docks, the 612 is manufactured completely from aluminum, using all stainless steel hardware. 

The styrene filled poly floats carry a12 year warranty 

The 612 dock can be ordered with 3 standard lengths of aluminum walkways we offer, or you can request a custom length if needed to work with your application.

All walkways come standard with handrail on both sides, while handrail on the dock is an option that needs to be ordered when purchasing your dock, if you want handrail around the whole dock, or part of it. We will manufacture the handrail to fit your needs.

Jet Ski Float System

Hotwood's designed the jet ski walkway dock for the person that needs a quick fix to have access to the lake, by getting out and away from the shore, as economically as possible, while still having the quality of our all aluminum construction used on all our Hotwood's docks and walkways. 

Length's of the walkway will be up to the customer, as we have 3 standard lengths, but a custom length can be ordered as an option if need to fit your needs. 

The uses are endless for this system, as we have seen them used for the customer that has a canoe, up to a larger john boat. We have also seen these used in industrial or commercial settings like gravel pits, etc. You decide what you need it for, and we will provide the dock.

Walk-N-Dock System

Hotwood's Walk N Dock has been such a popular option for the person that has one of our pontoon boats, or is ordering one, and would like to see it used as a dock or a boat. 

With the pull of 2 pins, you release the boat from the walkway and go boating. When you return to the walkway, simply lower the end ramp down to the receiver pockets on the boat and install 2 pins and your boat instantly becomes a dock. 

This system gives you multiple options that you do not have with any other boat or dock on the market. 

The walkway comes in 3 standard lengths, while you can order custom lengths if needed to work for your application.

Why we choose aluminum over wood docks...

As shown above, wood docks not only mean slivers from the wood, but the obvious sagging boards that could possibly give way when a person is entering or exiting the dock.

One of the biggest problems we see everyday in this business is dry rot in wood. You may as, what is dry rot? This occurs when the wood dries out on the underside of the plank, leaving the top side looking perfectly fine. Once the rot has penetrated the wood on the bottom side, it is just a matter of time before someone will break through the walkway or top of the dock, falling in the lake or injuring themselves due to the fall. This is especially dangerous for the elderly, that may not notice a bad spot in the wood before it is too late. 

In today's world the average home owner cannot afford this type of liability. We like to see the customer consider their dock as an investment just like their home.

Adding an aluminum dock adds to the value of your property, verses the wooden dock that is forever needing maintenance as the years go by.

With Hotwood's aluminum dock system, you are making an investment that will last a lifetime, and give you the assurance of safety every time you use it.
