How to pick the right dock:

Answer these 4 questions with scale of 1-5: 

I have a hard lake bottom…

– 1 2 3 4 5

0’ of muck (1)- 1 ft. of muck or more (5)

I have a gradual slope to waters edge and into the lake…

– 1 2 3 4 5

Gradual slope- no obstacles such as walls, a berm, rip wrap, etc. (1) – 1 or more significant obstacles (5)

I have a lot of room on my shoreline to store my dock in the winter…

– 1 2 3 4 5

Lots of room (1) – No room to store a dock on shore (5)

Score it: Find out what type of dock is right for you?

Score: 3-6

Anchor Dock & Lift  would recommend a ROLL-IN dock. The ease of having wheels on your dock is wonderful if the application is conducive to using wheels such as a gradual slope with no obstacles and a hard bottom. Wheels do not allow for stacking so it will require more storage space in the winter.

Score: 6-12

Anchor Dock & Lift would recommend a SECTIONAL dock. The ability to carry each section for installation or for winter storage provides greater flexibility and ease of service. A sectional dock is more appropriate for less than ideal shoreline applications.

Score: 12-15

Anchor Dock & Lift  would recommend a FLOATING dock. While slightly more expensive upfront, the floating dock can work in virtually any application and can even be more economical in the long run because the dock never needs to be leveled and does not need to be removed because it can freeze into the lake in the winter with less risk of damage.

There are a number of other considerations before making a final decision on any dock, but based on your score above, you can get a very good idea on what dock is the right dock for you.
