My floating dock is free floating and connected to pipes on the four corners. I had to allow for the lake level to rise over 4 ft during hurricane season. It is the largest dock the HOA allows.
Be sure to check what exactly is included. You may find the instruction manual online. This site will not allow links sorry.
Not included is the lumber $275. Check the manual for exact measurements and have Home Depot cut the wood for you
Stainless star deck screws 5 pound box #10- 2.5 inch. $52. (229 required but this seemed the cheapest way to go. The screws go in easier with a T-25 star using a ratchet.
Commercial grade pipe sleeve $22. Only one comes with the kit.
My project was for a floating dock with 4 poles. In my case I needed 2 10' and 2 15' pipes. So I bought 5 pipes 1-1/4 ID galvanized schedule 40. I cut one in half and used the pipe couple included to make the 15' pipes I needed. $150 for the pipe. Each pipe is about 5 ft below the lake bottom.
The 10' pipes without any connection fit into the commercial grade pipe sleeves. The 15' pipes would not fit because of the connection.
Included were two regular pipe sleeves so I got creative and purchased 2 pieces of 2" schedule 40 PVC pipe. Ground the sides down to fit the sleeves then bolted them to the deck using 8 - 3/8 carriage bolts 4 long and 7 galvanized washers with 9/16 hole for each bolt as a spacer (56 washers total). $15 for the bolts and washers. The 3" bolts included were too short but the washers and nuts worked.
The pipes were set using a garden hose inside the pipe to cut the hole. This worked for the deeper poles but not so well for the more shallow poles. I purchased a pole hammer and slowly beat them to the desired level.
As you make the frame be sure the floats fit the frame before you go wild with the screws especially with the last two inner long boards.
The above is what I did. For safety follow the manufacturers instructions.
