520 sq foot dock


Heathkits

70 foot long dock on 4 levels with new supporting structure underneath. Over 1000 board feet of pressure treated wood, 1700 deck screws, assorted 1/2" lag bolts and 5/8" threaded rod. Supported by 8 pilings that are washed 20 feet into the canal bottom. The old dock was disintegrating from the sun, heat and salt water.
The compact battery operated drill and impact driver allow the user to safely stand in salt water and work from underneath, or hang over side.. The drill created pilot holes for the coated deck screws and the impact driver drove them in to a calibrated refusal. A Ryobi compound miter saw allowed for precision miter cuts on the chevron decking pattern. Working spare time: 2-3 hours per day, for 5 days per week for 6 weeks - the lithium batteries always had sufficient charge.
