I looked at those - we have deeper waterfront too and that design would solve a lot of problems. My concern is what to do with them in the winter.

You know how the ice melts back 20-50 feet from teh shore around a lake during the spring thaw? Once every 20 years or so, the wind blows towards our dock during winter ice breakup, and an iceberg the size of our lake moves in slow motion towards our shore and crushes every dock on our side of the lake. I'm not sure a bubbler would keep enough of a ring of open water around the dock to protect it.
