This type of dock (liftable), works well in a river area that has deep water next to shore, and has relatively stable water heights.  It also works well with pontoon boats, as they make a good dock all by themselves.  By this, we mean that when the pontoon is tied up, there is quite a bit of space for entertaining and sometimes even a barbecue.  On the other hand, when the pontoon is out, there is typically nobody left on the dock.

This type of dock (liftable & floating) is one of only two dock types that works well in a river area where water levels vary widely or have heavy ice flows in springWater depths should be enough to float your boat within eight feet of shore.

Liftable dock on river where water can change 6' and where the bank is still to high off water at the edge, so stair section also lifts.


This dock is very much the same as that above as they are neighbors.  The only real difference is that this one the stair and dock section that are hinged and lift are also on floats.


Floating liftable dock on the river that needed stairs to the water from an existing platform.
