Dock boxes are used as a storage place to keep your dock and boating accessories safe and sound. Many may recognize these boxes as outdoor storage and indoor storage boxes, but all of them serve the same purpose. They can also be used to store other equipment, like toys, blankets, pool chemicals and tools, garden equipment and many more. However, with the constant increase in the variety of dock storage boxes, it can become extremely difficult to determine which one is best for your needs. So, to help you out, here are a few common types of dock boxes and their functions from MoBox Marine:
MoBox Premium Dock Boxes
These are the standard dock boxes which are made from fiberglass. They are strong enough to endure the harsh marine environment. These premium dock boxes are made with stainless steel lockable latch, vents, gas shocks, and ISO/NPG UV gel coats which ensure the box will last for years and years. The marine grade aluminum hinge is one continuous hinge so there are no weak spots. There are no rivets – we thru-bolt every component with stainless steel fasteners to make sure the fasteners will hold. The Premium line-up from MoBox Marine comes 24” high by 24” deep and lengths of 4’, 6’, and 8’.
MoBox Slim Line Dock Boxes
The slim line dock boxes are similar to any other type of storage boxes, but as the name implies they have a slimmer design. These SlimLine dock boxes are made with stainless steel lockable latch, vents, gas shocks, and ISO/NPG UV gel coats which ensure the box will last for years and years. The marine grade aluminum hinge is one continuous hinge so there are no weak spots. There are no rivets – we thru-bolt every component with stainless steel fasteners to make sure the fasteners will hold. In addition, these boxes can also be used as a bench. The SlimLine boxes from MoBox Marine are 18” tall and 18” deep and come in lengths from 3’, 4’, 6’, and 8’.
Upright Specialty Dock Boxes
Specialty dock boxes are another unique type of dock box that are created for storing any and all goods. These storage boxes do not take up much lateral space and perhaps the best option for homeowners looking for a decent storage box, which has the capability to store a lot of items without taking up so much dock space.
2-Step, 3 step, and 4 step Dock Steps
These dock steps are rather unique and act as a stairway and are the sturdiest dock steps out there. Each tread has special non-skid material to help you and your guests board your boat safely without slipping. They are lightweight and portable. Just like the MoBox Dock Boxes, these dock steps are made with ISO/NPG gel coat to insure UV stability and chemical resistance. They can also come with an optional hand rail.
So, now that you are familiar with the various types of dock boxes, choosing one which best suits your needs and requirements won’t be a problem.
