Part of the joy of waterfront living is the ability to pull right up to the shore in your boat. Over time, however, the dock you use to tie up your boat is at the mercy of the waves and the weather. If this is the first time you’re considering new boat docks, or you’re looking for a replacement for a mooring system past its prime, here are a few tips to consider.
First, consider your local waterway. New boat docks may be shiny and resilient, but taking the local wave action, human demands of the area, and the type of new boat docks will be expected to protect can help refine the design, placement, and installation. There are many beautiful lakes in both North and South Carolina, and knowing what a specific lake will do over the course of a year will help you to better create new boat docks that will meet your needs for many years to come.
Second, consider the purpose of the new boat docks. The simplest of these will serve to moor a watercraft and allow people to safely and easily move from ship to shore. More complex designs can serve as an extension of the living area, and provide a sheltered place for kids and adults to play in the water.
Third, consider who is doing the work behind the new boat docks.
