We'll recommend the configuration that best fits your
needs and desires.
Docks work well in a wide variety of circumstances.
For rough water conditions, they are recommended
as waves can pass easily through the legs. If
your dock can be installed permanently, it can
be placed on pilings for a very solid working
surface. If you plan to remove your dock for
winter or other seasonal needs, standing docks
can be designed for quick and easy installation
and removal. They also stack nicely for better
appearance during the off-season.
are the perfect solution for sites with deep
water, significant water fluctuation or where
the bottom is too soft for wheeled or standing
docks. If your site is exposed to heavy waves
or boat wakes, a "U" shaped floating dock works
best. Decking choices are almost unlimited.
Anchoring is done through cables, stiff arms,
ramps, or sea anchors in many different combinations.
are ideal if your waterfront freezes in winter,
and if you have a fairly firm lake bottom, a
gradual grade, and minimal elevation at the
shore. You'll also need a clearing when you
pull the entire dock up and out of the water.
If your site meets these conditions, a wheeled
dock will be the easiest to install and remove.
Just roll it in, all in one piece, in the spring,
then back out again in the fall.
