Stokes Marine Inc
We have the knowledge to accomplish your marine construction needs.We pride ourselves on quality and communication and look forward to enhancing your waterfront lifestyle. A retractable boarding platform can be installed to allow for an easier step on to and off of your boat from your dock. Call us today to have a custom boarding platform installed on your dock.
We recommend using synthetic decking materials such as HDPE plastics and Cellular PVC to meet the weather challenges faced by a dock or deck in Florida. These HDPE plastics and Cellular PVC materials last much longer than traditional wood decking materials. They do not require sealing, staining or treating, and are easy to clean. Stokes Marine also installs traditional wood decking.
Every piling installed by Stokes Marine has piling wrap installed on it. This maximizes the life of your piling by reducing the impact of marine bores.The plastic wrap is installed with stainless ring shank nails.If the water depth is deeper on one side of your slip than the other a shallow water cradle will more than likely benefit you. Measure the depth at the center of the lift piling on the shallow side of your slip and compare it to the depth 3′ into your slip. This depth difference tells you how much water depth benefit you will get from electing a shallow water cradle. Lifts that are located parallel to or on an angle in relation to the seawall generally benefit from a shallow water cradle. As the water depth on the outside of the lift closer to the center of the canal is generally deeper than the water depth close to the seawall. If your lift is oriented 90 degrees off the seawall the shallow water cradle more than likely will not help you for a water depth utilization purposes.
