Ipe Boat dock and boat lifts installed in Exuma, Bahamas

The Tiki Hut Company has recently completed an ipe Deck construction in The Exumas, Bahamas. TTHC was awarded a contract to complete a large fuel dock for a private client as well as install state of the art, remote controlled boat lifts. Contract included underwater bolting of bracing and installing openings to allow tidal surge to pass through deck in sections elevating the upward forces on the deck substructure. Fortunately, all work was completed  before Hurricane Sandy struck, and the deck withstood 6' tidal surge, without any damage.

Ipe decking was fastened from below, giving the deck a smooth look free of screw heads. 1 1/2" thick by 5 5/8" wide (2x6) Ipe boards were use for decking.
