Marine Specialties Installs First Wahoo Dock with Classic Tile Steel Roof
Wahoo Docks dealer Marine Specialties recent installation of a Wahoo CAT 5 double-slip boat dock on Lake Lanier marked the initial use of Spanish tile-shaped, specialty stone-coated sheet metal roofing on a Wahoo dock. An ironwood fascia wrapped the roofline, as well as the sides of the oversized 3-foot-wide staircase. Antique bronze powder-coating on the roof poles and oversized 40-foot arched gangway frame provided a unified appearance.
The lower level and gangway of the two-level lake dock was decked in ironwood and Wahoo Dock’s proprietary sandstone AridDek on the upper level sun deck. Antique bronze railing with a 2-foot gate framed the deck.
The two boat slips – one used for personal watercraft (PWC) – contain a HydroHoist 6600 electric boat lift and a HydroPort-2XL PWC platform . They are finished with mainframe face and corner bumpers and ironwood bunk boards.
Extreme wave action encountered by this dock is dampened with the installation of Wahoo’s wave attenuation package.
The Classic Tile roof panels are now available as a roofing option from Wahoo Docks in a choice of three color coatings: Driftwood, Barclay and Spanish Red. The stone-coated steel roof panels are made from highly durable 26-gauge Galvalume galvanized steel and coated with an acrylic basecoat. The basecoat uses proprietary resins, which have been developed over many years to promote lifetime performance in all climates. The stone chips used are non-oiled natural granite granules that improve adherence to the basecoat while enhancing the appearance of the panels. Finally, a clear acrylic over-glaze is applied and baked on. This provides the dock with long-lasting, durable and fade-resistant protection.
