The load capacity of the gravel pad is 1,000 lbs./sq ft. A bull rail lines the sheet pile face and tire fenders are used to protect vessels. Bollards are available for tie up.
The SE corner of the dock includes a filter rock ramp for small boats or landing craft. This ramp can be used for 1 hour before and 1 hour after high tide for vessels with ramps. This allows for heavy equipment to be driven on/off the dock.
