The dock layout, also known as the dock footprint, is one of the most important decisions you will make concerning your new dock. Generally, this decision will be determined by your boating and recreational needs.
A waterfront property owner with no boats, seeking a dock for fishing, swimming, or lounging purposes may opt for a platform dock – or “pier dock“. With a platform dock, it can be used as a pier, swim platform, sun deck, or docking platform. You can moor a boat or PWC to a platform dock but there is no “slip” to into which you would drive the boat or personal watercraft. You dress up your platform aluminum dock from Wahoo with ladders, diving boards, kayak racks and other dock accessories and finishing touches.
