|The layout of the Floating Dock System at Shelburne Bay Park was designed by the Harbormaster,
Dan Couture, and constructed by The Dock Doctors.
The heavy duty commercial
quality floating docks
incorporate a galvanized
truss style frame with pressure
treated decking and
In addition, a commercial quality bumper is secured with stainless steel screws to the entire perimeter
of the floating dock sections.
A 30 foot long ramp, along with
three-twenty foot floating sections,
extend the dock out into a depth of
about eight feet when Lake
Champlain is 96' above sea level.
The six foot wide floating sections allow for sufficient loading
and unloading space. Overnighting on the docks is not
permitted at any any time due to the fact that a northerly wind
can cause the dock system to ossilate up and down to a great
extent between wave intervals.
The docks are annually installed around the first
week of May and hauled-out roughly during the third
week of October.
