Easyfloat pontoons for the Hersfelder Rowing Club

Hersfelder Ruderverein just acquired 3 EasyFloat pontoon sections in order to replace its old rowing dock. This pontoons are particularly suitable in cases where you have to be as close as possible to the water.


Hersfelder Ruderverein just acquired 3 EasyFloat pontoons sections. Two sections in 2,40m x 4,20m and one section in 2,40m x 6,00m makes a total length of 14,40m and a free-board of 19cm. This pontoon system is particularly suitable for application where you have to as close as possible to the water, as it is the case in rowing or canoe.

This pontoon replaces an old wooden dock which have been used since many years by the rowing club. The anchoring is a little bit special because it has been realized with the former gangway. There it was very heavy, we increased its buoyancy with 4 floating cubes.

Finally, a protection floater will be attached upstream in order to protect the dock from the ice brought in winter by the Fulda.
