Jet Dock delivered a 42 ft. Performance Series Floating Boat Dock to Command Riverine Group One for dry-docking a 24,000 lbs. Small Unit Riverine Craft, or SURC. The floating docking system is 46' 8" long, 15' wide and is the first commercial application of Jet Dock's four valve/four pontoon lifting system.
Jet Dock has been using a two-valve/two pontoon lifting systems for over 6 years, and has had the four-valve/four pontoon lifting system under development over 2 years. Due to the 24,000 lbs. weight of the SURC, this was the first time Jet Dock chose to deploy the new system.
In addition to the dry-docking system, the Riverines purchased multiple wet slips for their location. Based on the varying craft that the Riverines will be using at this site, they needed the flexibility of the wet slips. By combining the two Jet Dock interfaces at one location, the Riverines are now ready for any craft or training exercise they may have.
The SURCs are 40 ft. long, 880 hp jet driven craft that are designed for river combat. The craft can travel at up to 38 knots even with full armor. These vessels are operated by a small platoon of US Marines specialists trained specifically for river patrols in combat zones.
Jet Dock Systems carry a Lifetime Limited Warranty which is virtually unheard of in the marine environment.
