The concrete floats that long supported the public dock in Waterfront Park are up for grabs.
Set to be replaced by new aluminum float system as part of the ongoing park and dock remodeling project, 21 concrete dock floats are being offered up for free to anyone who can haul them away, as was recently announced via a Craigslist ad.
“Floats are in good working condition, no leaks and cracking, are to be replaced with a new aluminum float system under a public works contract with the city of Bainbridge Island,” according to the ad. “Floats are coming out soon so we can put your name on a list.”
Each of the floats are 12 feet long and 10 feet wide. The ad also specifies, “WE’LL LOAD and YOU HAUL,” so interested buyers should ensure they have access to a capable vehicle with which to take the floats home.
The floats are expected to be taken out of the water between Aug. 1 and Aug. 7.
