Check The Florida Building Code (2004).  I don't know that it specifically address docks, but it does cover railings, etc.

Subject: Florida Dock Design

Good morning,


I am trying to check design requirements for a small residential dock built on a small lake in Florida.  I am only finding information on loading for the deck area.  I am also interested in any requirements for railings, minimum elevations of the deck surface, overall geometric design guidelines, etc.


Thanks in advance!


Best Regards,
