versadocks

Hi all,

Just built our first versadock over here, just recived the ali bars that keep it from folding up yesterday, so will fit and have a go with the 8.5 meter scorp that it was built for. We also built it on a slip way but our passes by stoped and helped , Richard that dock layout is the same as the one we have just built, I know what you mean about there looking like there are to many floats, when ours arrived I thought we would have enough for 2 docks. But no it was just the right amount, a very clever design that has created a stir over here!

here is a vid from our web site of these docks in action, can't wait to have a go with it!

Nope just leave them, they also come with a 25 year no quibble guarantee. The customer service has been superb, had a couple of teathing problems, they came round the next day, rectiifed the problem, with a follow up call to check everything was still fine.

Nick Wood at Compass

Nick & Bob Wood, and our mutual friend Liam Hennelly, have spent all day (today's a bank holiday in Jersey!), finishing the dock off and we did the first trials today. I'd just like to thank Nick here - he runs a great business.

The versadock is a phenomenal piece of kit, but we've still got a bit of tweaking to do, to make sure there's enough prop in the water for the reverse off. Quite relieved to say good bye to the trailer, trailing a 30' rig in Jersey hasn't been fun.

Nick Wood has been fantastic, and if anyone would like to get one of these in the Channel Islands they should get in touch with Nick - they get my 100% recommendation.

The weight of my rib is 3900kg full of fuel (450 litres) the floats are all standard except down the keel of the rib they are double stacked. I am planning on trying to sort out a vid shortly of driving on and off just to show how easy it really is. My initial concerns was that my rib bow would pitch right up then fall forwards, but it doesn't it just slides up the whole dock then just sits there a float above the water. Very simple, but very clever.
