When our customer in Big Pine Key, Florida wanted to pull their boat out
of the water and set it on storage blocks they contacted Universal Foam
Products for STYROFOAM™ boat storage blocks. The blocks, which are
actually made of EPS (expanded polystyrene) are the most popular boat
storage blocks or boat stands because of their strength and durability.
Besides being very economical the EPS will not scratch or damage the
boat hull. It can also be used for sailboat blocks and is available in
almost any size. The 1 lb density EPS blocks used for this boat were 36”
x 36” x 36”. In this case the customer cut the v-groove into the top of
the blocks, but they are often left as cubes also.
