Have you recently taken a stroll over on one of the three community docks at the Homes of Riviera Dunes and noticed something different?
Yes, there are many new pedestals installed and many more will be installed very soon.
But look closer in the water on the floating docks and you should notice that the barnacles have been removed!
Barnacle growth on docks can cause serious damage to the docks. Not only they grow many inches thick interfering with the path of your boat and possibly scratching its gel-coat as you try to dock it, or while it is docked, but it also adds unnecessary weight burden on the docks.
Barnacles can add many pounds to the weight of the docks and can damage the floating plastic by puncturing it.
By removing the mussels, barnacles, oysters and other growth on the dock floats on a regular basis, the Homes of Riviera Dunes Dock Committee ensures a long lasting life of the docks, minimizing repairs and maximizing the value of the investment that we all are making into our community.
Thank you Dock Committee for your hard work keeping our community docks in tip-top shape!
