Daggum, that's a sweet looking dock! Some relaxing times ahead I'm sure.

How deep is the water?

Sweet!Thats a nice pond. Im jealous . Our pond is a bit bigger than the dock, a cow watering hole back in the day ,fed from a seeping hillside spring.

I bought it from this place in Ohio. They use to be a metal fabricating company that made products for coal plants but with the slowdown in coal they switched over to making docks. Top notch company, reasonable and everything metal they make themselves and make it heavy duty. They came and installed my dock in about 3 hours.


Our dock is 12x16. They fabricated heavy duty dog steps on the left of the dock and can make anything you want.

Of course when my labs were in the water, they swam right past the steps I had made for them and swam to shore to get back on the dock. My wife laughed at the look on my face. I wasn't as amused.

Our dock will hold 6,200 lbs but the dock weighs 1,800 lbs so about 4,400 lbs on the dock. If you notice in the one picture, the floats are only about 2" in the water. Very buoyant and stable.

We really did our research on this. If you're thinking about a permanent dock, you might want to look at youtube. In our area, ice has the tendency to up heave the pilings. In more northern areas on lakes, it's almost a yearly job having someone come in with heavy equipment to push your pilings back down(if your dock wasn't ruined).


I didn't want anything I had to pull out at the end of the year or had to worry about ice. I just wasn't sold on the floating docks because I didn't want to bounce. Finally found a company that built their floating docks so heavy duty and with so much support from the floats that I am more than pleased with the end product.


If anyone is going to build one themselves, make sure to add a 4x4 float in the center of the dock. Increases stability exponentially.
