Like any sport, rowing is competitive. Not only is there competition in the water, but there is also competition out of the water. Temple University’s rowing coach says that they have the best rowing dock in Philadelphia. We concur as we believe that we design and manufacture the finest rowing docks and rowing centers around. An aluminum rowing dock with synthetic lumber decking that is 280-feet long and that is accessed by two, 24′ x 40′ aluminum gangways, is very hard to compete with. That is why Temple is bragging (and so are we). There is pride in rowing and pride in manufacturing great products. Watch the video:
The Temple University Rowing Center is a state-of-the-art facility on the Schuylkill River and characterized as “the best rowing center in Philadelphia” by their Crew Coach Brian Perkins. The Temple boathouse is located 2.5 miles north of the famed Boathouse Row, and 11 miles south of the Conshohocken Rowing Center. The site is specially engineered to be fastened into the river bank anchor points above the historic cement riverbank wall. It is also designed to handle the torque from the river current and water level fluctuations. Additionally, the design maintains 6″ freeboard for easy entry and exit from boats as well as support the varying weight requirements during large events and regattas.
The rowing center was designed, manufactured, and installed by BoardSafe, a manufacturer of aluminum floating docks, aluminum gangways, pedestrian bridges, and other marina access products.
