boat dock ???

My father in-law just got a camp on the upper Allegheny. He is looking at putting in a 4X16 dock. his spot on the river is about 3' deep and is in a slower moving pool. He has an 18' jet boat he will be tying off. Can't drive anything into the bottom of the river and can't sink anything to anchor the docks. there are two very largetrees right along his 100' of river front.Any advice on set ups will be very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike

Re: boat dock ???

I'm picturing a dock at 90deg to the shore (the usual set-up).
You might try putting it parallel against the shore and anchor the ends and middle if necessary to the ground with steel posts and cable on turnbuckles.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

Re: boat dock ???

Here are a couple of pictures of our setup on the Allegheny River



The up river side is connected to the shore by a cable attatched to a post. The outside has a short piece of rope attatched to a block on the bottom of the river. The down river side pivots off the ramp and it sits on the shoreline. When we leave we unhook the ramp and pull it on shore if we wont be back for a while or unsure if the river might get real high. We have had this set up for a couple of years now and it works really well.
