Whether you're looking for a space to park your boat, a swimming platform, or a serene spot for sunsets, follow these ten steps to ensure a seamless transition from dock-shopping to dock-enjoying.
Before diving in, ask yourself why you're buying a dock. For boating? Swimming? Or just relaxation? Your primary purpose will guide the rest of your decisions.

Before finalizing any plans, check local regulations and obtain necessary permits. Some areas have restrictions on dock size, style, or installation methods.
