Seahorse Supports and Saving Your Dock

DNR Specialty Welding dedicates itself to more than just our lifts and ladders. For too long have we been going out to install a new Leisure Boat Lift, only to see countless docks leaning and bent, their wooden pilings simply destroyed by time, weather, and waves. We provide an alternative method of dock supports, our Seahorse Supports. Each support comes in a pair of A-shape supports, with a crossbar and 4 adjustable legs. All components are cut, formed, pieced, and welded together here at our shop.

Each foot is planted into the lake bottom, with the weight of the dock and supports bearing down on it. The support acts like the roots of a tree and keeps the dock stable and strong without being worn down by the waves and weather like a piling would. You can see many docks in the Okanagan’s local lakes that are held strong by our seahorse dock supports; and despite their old age, still do not have signs of weakness showing.

The above photo is a dock with the pilings worn right down, tilting and leaning and very damaged. This is just what are seahorse dock supports can do – save your dock. We remove and replace all old pilings with our steel dock supports, and that dock will last for decades. Our supports use the exact same marine-safe paint and epoxy as our Leisure Boat Lifts do, too. They are 100% safe to swim around and cause no harm whatsoever to the marine environment around them.
