Requirements:

Choose your required freeboard then pick the correct float for height taking into consideration your frame height. Next, work out the square footage of your dock design and consult the chart below. Let's say you were going to build an 8'x20' standard rectangular dock and wanted to use AP-12 floats. Your dock would be 160 square feet so if you divide by 20 (the number off the chart), you would need a minimum of 8 floats. Put a float close to or right on each corner and spread the balance out relatively equally. An extra long or heavy ramp will require flotation where dock and ramp meet.
