With temperatures starting to drop as we get into the winter months you may need to start thinking about how to protect your dock & boat…

Dock deicer blubbers are the ideal solution for preventing ice damage caused by moving ice.  Ice can exert considerable pressure on the shoreline from thermal expansion, high wind on large ice sheets and collisions of large ice floes. Docks and boats are usually not built to withstand the forces that ice can impose of them. Many years ago someone figured out that pumping air into the water at the edge of docks and boats would keep the ice melted with the flow of above freezing water brought up by the bubbles. More recently, and more efficient, propeller type deicers have become popular. (as shown below)
