Transportation of the do-it-yourself kit is easy with a trailer and/or with a boat. The loose parts can easily be packed into the trailer and are light enough to carry to the shore.

Construction of the K5i pontoon begins by attaching the plastic floats to the wooden frame. After this is completed, the next step is to build the deck of the dock and possible side paneling. The pontoon is now ready to be anchored. 25kg manually installed weights are used for the anchor. These are sunk to the bottom along the chain. The amount of anchoring weights depends mainly on the wind conditions at the specific location. Our sales personnel will gladly offer advice on how to instal and anchor your pontoon dock
