Golden Marine Systems rebuilds Moss Marine


When Hurricane Irma tore through Florida last year, it left $53.4 billion worth of destruction behind. Family-owned Moss Marine of Fort Myers Beach was one of the businesses devastated by the Category 5 storm.

The 49-year-old marina chose Golden Marine Systems, a sister company of Golden Boat Lifts, to manufacture a new dock system.

The project consists of 7,500 square feet of Golden Marine Systems' 950 double and 850 single e-track docking.

Made of 6061 T6 marine-grade aluminum with stainless steel components, the system allows for adjustable cleats, finger piers and pile guides. Rubber Flexi-Block Connectors reduce creaking.

The decking and fascia boards are a low-maintenance, long-life composite.

Golden Marine Systems led the project, obtaining the permits and overseeing the installation of the docks, utilities and fuel system.

The project is slated to be completed in November.
