FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q. What is a truckable barge?

A. A truckable barge is a barge with two or more sections that you transport over the road and bolt together on site.

Q. What do you mean when you say your sections bolt together?

A. Most sectional barges pin together which creates a moveable joint. Our barges use positive bolted connections that in essence takes two individual sections and creates one stable platform. There is no movement between the sections of our barges.

Q. Why are your barges shaped like a pontoon boat?

A. Just like with a pontoon boat, stability is the driving design factor.

Q. Do the individual sections roll to one side before you get them bolted together?

A. No. The individual sections are self leveling and can handle several men on the deck before you get them connected depending on the size of the barge.

Q. How long does it take to bolt the sections together?

A. The smaller barges bolt together in less than a half hour with a 1-2 person crew. The larger barges usually take an hour or two with a 2-4 person crew.
