Default Work Float

Anybody recommend a decent portable 4' x 8' work float with a 350 - 500 lb weight capacity that can be easily transported in the bed of a pick up truck or on a ladder rack for use when working at boat docks and piers.

Thanks

Here we get a block of styrofoam from an insulation supply house and lash a piece of plywood on top.
It's best to screw 2x4s flat around the top edges as a meager attempt to keep stuff from rolling off.
We have plenty of yachts and docks here and it seems the way to go.
Light weight and won't ding up the boats. Also very stable and will not sink.
A big plus so that when you are done with it, you can just leave it for the next guy.

Why not wait for the water to freeze and walk on it?
