Boat Docks, Oh the Choices

If you live on a pond, lake, river, or any other waterfront

location, a boat dock is a must. Even if you don’t own a boat, a boat dock has

many entertainment possibilities and is the perfect place to catch some rays

while being one with nature.
In your quest for building the right boat dock for your

situation you’ll need to consider whether you want a floating or stationary

dock, a wood or steel frame, wood or concrete decking, and whether or not you

want a roof.
Design choices range between simple-basic to elaborate and

dock kits to customized docking. It all depends on how you plan to use your

boat dock and budget.

Fun docks

How about a double-decker boat dock with a covered platform

on the first level and an open sun deck above – add a slide and a hot tub and

you’ve got the ingredients for some serious fun. Check out this U shape dock with a platform

layout and upper deck:

Docks for entertaining

Add custom

railings with light posts and a canapé for shade. Consider built-in storage

benches to add permanent seating as well as storage for blankets, candles, corkscrews

and extra wine glasses for those unexpected guests. Adorn your dock with tiki

torches and a fire pit for a cozier feel.

Docks for the serious fisherman who also enjoy fine wine

Nautical rope tied railings, a built-in ice chest, a sink, Adirondack

chairs, and a flag pole and weathervane are but a few of the necessities for

the serious fisherman. Check out this site and be sure to see the built-in wine

rack hidden behind the stairs: http://www.barrettboatdockstx.com/accessories.html
