Water Level & Conditions

Your water level and conditions of your lakefront are a huge factor on what type of boat dock you should consider. Maybe you're on the open water at the busy part of the lake or maybe you are tucked away in a cove in a no wake zone. What about the water level? Does it stay around the same level throughout the year or does the water level go up and down throughout the year. Also, how deep is your water at your waterfront? Depending on the depth and your preferences will depend on if you choose a floating dock or a stationary dock.

Size & Shape

Depending on how much room you have on your shoreline can depend on how big of a boat dock you may be able to have. You also may have requirements from the board at your lake of how big and how far from your shoreline your boat dock can be. You will also want to consider what you are going to be using your dock for. Are you primarily going to be using it to just walk to and from your boat or are you going to be putting some chairs on your dock and using it to relax on?

Materials & Construction

The next thing you will want to consider is what materials are being used on the boat dock and how it is being built. Remember cheaper is not always better, and your boat dock is an investment and you want to make sure it lasts for many years to come. Always ask your dealer what kind of materials they use for the structure of your dock.

You want to make sure that they are knowledgeable, will answer your questions, and is are transparent about the products they use.
