 DIY Floating Boat Dock using SikaBond Construction Adhesive

For my floating dock I decided to use SikaBond Construction Adhesive to reinforce each plank prior to screwing them down. This flexible adhesive will create a watertight seal and prevent any excess water from seeping between the boards that would normally cause them to lift over time from weathering.

In order to allow for shrinking/expanding of the boards as well as drainage I used a 1/4 in. sheet on wood to space each plank evenly.
