PRODUCTS & SERVICES Portable dock system wins innovation award An innovative new portable floating dock system, developed and manufactured by Bellingham Marine, not only made an impressive debut at the Miami International Boat Show but also secured an Innovation Award from the National Marine Manufacturers’ Association (NMMA) and Boat Writers International (BWI). Bellingham’s portable dock system includes a number of innovative features that make the docks easy to install, anchor, run utilities through, remove, transport and store. “Having the new temporary Bellingham docks for our inaugural show at Miami Marine Stadium Park and Basin, added to the enhanced consumer and exhibitor experience we delivered while bringing a clean, easy to install and remove system to our new in-water space,” noted Larry Berryman, assistant show manager and sales director for the NMMA. “One of the best features of these docks is that they’re 100% EPA compliant and completely encapsulated. They not only look good and function perfectly, but they help us ensure we’re meeting all environmental requirements - something that’s critical to NMMA.” Bellingham worked closely with the NMMA to develop the new docks. “This portable system is the perfect choice for individuals looking for a temporary/portable system, infrastructure for overwater venues, or a dock system that can be easily removed from the water during the off-season,” said Bellingham Marine general manager, Mark Johnson. The docks are designed with a high live load capacity and are rated for commercial use. The system is designed around five primary components that allow the dock modules to be connected and arranged in an infinite number of configurations much like a set of Lego. Movable and flexible anchorage points allow the docks to be anchored by pile or chain in a variety of locations. Purposeful use and placement of cleats, lifting hardware and other components make the docks easy to install, remove and stack for storage. “It is an honour to be presented with this prestigious award,” said Bellingham Marine president Steve Ryder, manager product development SE Division, receives the Innovation Award on behalf of Bellingham Marine at the Miami International Boat Show in February. and CEO, Everett Babbitt. “A great deal of effort by some extraordinary individuals on both the Bellingham and the NMMA side went into the development of this innovative product.” The Miami International Boat Show Innovation Award was developed in partnership by the NMMA and BWI to recognise exceptionally innovative new consumer marine products. The judging committee comprised BWI members who performed product testing throughout the year and who have specific expertise in marine products and equipment. 77 products were entered; 17 winners were selected in 16 categories.
