Question about a dock

Question

Scoot

I'd like to replace one section of a dock. The material used in the dock (see below) appears to be some sort of plywood with a layer of some sort on top of it. Each section of the dock is 4' x 8'.

Can anyone tell me exactly what each section of the dock is made of? Where would be the best place to find a replacement section?

Scoot,

This looks like the same material that we had on our dock. It's a thin sheet of fiberglass laid over plywood. Ours rotted through over time. It's made by Hewitt docks and comes in 4X8 foot sheets. Pretty expensive (over $100.00) per sheet to replace. Once I found out the cost I went to aluminum docking and am glad i did.

I second the aluminum dock, My grandparents have it and are very very happy. They will last alot longer than normal docks also.

I'm sure the swap over to aluminum would be great, but terribly costly. All I'd like to do is replace one section of the dock, since the rest are still good. I called a couple places yesterday and the cheapest I could find was $144 per section- frickin' ridiculous! Anyone know where I can get one cheaper?

I helped my dad redue a section of his dock last fall. We got a 4X8 sheet of marine grade and then covered it with outdoor/marine carpet
