Anglers Avenue Marine Center announces the installation of Pearson Fiberglass Composite Pilings for their dock renovation project. Management decided to use Fiberglass over conventional wooden pilings because they do not harm the environment, they last longer and are structurally stronger than wood.

"We did our homework and found that the lateral strength of a fiberglass piling is about five times that of a wood piling says Mark Gelders, AAMC General Manager." This means we can use a 10’ Fiberglass Piling instead of a 12’ wood piling to support our new In-Slip Vertical Boat Lifts. Each slip was built to exact dimensions to accept In-Slip Vertical Boat Lifts. The marina currently has 16,000 lb and 27,000 lb boat lifts available for lease.

They also used composite deck material rather than wood decking because it looks great, is impervious to weather and provides a cleaner surface. A cleaner deck surface allows boat owners to work on and off their boat without tracking dirt on their boat from the deck surface. Additionally, each slip has adjacent parking which is convenient and cleaner for the boat owner.

For additional information please contact the Anglers Avenue Marine Center at 954-962-8702 or visit http://www.aamcmarina.com. AAMC is located ½ mile west of the Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood Airport on the Dania Cutoff Canal.

Four years ago, this marina near the heart of Ft Lauderdale, Florida was in very poor condition. The majority of the boat slips had been constructed in the lat 60’s, and many of its docks and piers were in need of repair or replacement. In November 2006, new ownership took over and began the process of updating and modernizing its facilities to attract new customers. They also changed the name to Anglers Avenue Marine Center.
