ive been hearing some bad stories about the concrete docks, your ramps and stiff arms points take some abuse just make sure your cables dont let it move to much side to side, at one time or another ive had just about every thing that can get broke on a dock break.

Shane did you hit the powerball spending 60 grand on a dock?

i have heard that the concrete moduler are through bolted to hold them together and in the rough water were they are attached starts to wobble out the attaching point making them loose and then causing the moduler to move around.

Cant you drive posts into the bottom and have your lifts on them? The the rough will not matter at all. At leaste not for the boats.....

Hey guys luckily I am in a quiet cove... but for reference...

What in the crap do you do in that situation? Was the boat full of water? Was it still being held by the lift?

Thanks SoS

No, we are talking about depths of 30'-70'. The docks pretty much have to be free floating dock secured with heavy duty ramps, stiff arms and cables all attaching to fixed points on the shoreline.

Altho not down that far, I live right off the channel in a very busy cove, with a restaurant in the rear, so we see lots of traffic and lately tons of huge boats and wakes. I have one of the poured concrete docks, from Rush Dock and Crane, and I love it. The dock barely moves except in the worst waves. Walkway attaches at four points with 3/4 inch grade eight bolts.

Have also heard that there is something else available to prevent alot of movement. Apparently they are something like a huge upside down umbrella looking thing that gets suspended under the dock, and supposedly helps a great deal. I'll be looking for them next.

Good luck.

you try to get the lift out from underneath it so it falls back into the slip......

I have seen some dock place take 55 gallon drums and fill them with concrete then place angle iron through in several places sticking out about 1-2 feet and hang them about 15 feet under the dock.......to act like a stabilizer has any one here tried that?
weighting the dock, however the method, is good way to keep the strain down on your dock...

i hit them square on, which is why i think my dock has done as well as it has... it doesn't get a lot of twisting action unless cruisers come and go out of my cove..
