TRULINE – The Ultimate Dock Pile

Posted on Apr 22 in Member Blog

Introducing the ultimate dock pile by Truline — Build better dock piles with the same material used to build long-lasting seawalls.

– Eliminates the typical wood piles used for many docks and increases the life expectancy of the dock to match the seawall.
– Same color and appearance as the Truline seawall parts.
– Vinyl-clad, steel-reinforced concrete dock pile driven with the same methods and equipment as the seawall or bulkhead.
– Lighting, bumpers and other accessories can be easily added or integrated into the dock pile.
– Use to build fish tables, light poles, water supply, power stations, and more.

New case on maritime law claims against marine contractor

Posted on Apr 19 in Member Blog

This is a significant for members of FMCA. The Florida appellate court ruled that the prevailing plaintiff in a negligence action grounded in admiralty is not entitled to recover attorney’s fees because such recovery is not allowed in federal admiralty law. Plaintiff had sued the company that designed and installed her boat lift for damages to the vessel. Loss of use, and diminution of value. After defendant rejected her offers of settlement, she also claimed for her attorney’s fees, as allowed by state law. The court refused to award attorneys fees under the state statute because the plaintiffs claim was based on federal admiralty/maritime law Marco Marine Construction v. Kopras, No. 2D17-1734 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App., April 17, 2019) [https://www.2dca.org/content/download/523642/5817364/file/171734_39_04172019_08414708_i.pdf]
