About Us

Wahoo Docks is the leading floating aluminum dock manufacturer in North America, known for creating top quality aluminum docks, gangways, bridges, and more. We have been building commercial and residential dock systems for over three decades, spending the last fifteen years focused on our heavy framed aluminum dock design with an emphasis on strength, durability, aesthetic appeal, and low maintenance.

When we started Wahoo Docks, our mission was to develop aluminum docks of unmatched quality with an emphasis on strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal. We wanted our boat docks to be low maintenance and our boat dock accessories… to be top-of-the-line. Today, we’ve achieved that goal. You simply will not find a stronger or more beautiful dock anywhere else.” ~Tim Osby, owner and founder of Wahoo Docks.

Why Aluminum?

Marine grade aluminum has a tensile strength similar to steel but is more versatile, corrosion resistant, and low maintenance.

aluminum oxidation vs rust on floating boat dock

Aluminum Oxidation

Aluminum naturally reacts with oxygen to create a hard and durable aluminum oxide coating, preventing further oxidation and increasing longevity.

Steel Oxidation

The iron in steel reacts with the environment to create rust, which is permeable to air and water.  Rust will continue to corrode internally, degrading and weakening over time.

Wood Decay

In a marine environment, wood is subjected to cycles of moisture and dryness, causing swelling, shrinkage, and encouraging fungal growth. The result is cracking, splitting, and warping of wood, weakening its strength over time.

FUN FACTS!

• Aluminum is the most common metal, comprising 8% of the earth’s crust.

• Recycling aluminum only uses 5% of the energy required for extracting the metal.
