Whips work really well... boat is actually on the side that is downwind from the prevailing winds.. thus holding boat away..

We get some good swells from other boat traffic...esp people taking kids skiing or tubing soo slow and plowing away... boat is aways good and never have issues.. waves over the dock before the boat gets "rocked"

We are in northern Michigan (North Lake Leelanau). That lake is controlled by a dam. I've never seen the lake level vary much. They will occasionally adjust the dam. The dock is made by Shore Station. Aluminum deck (powder coated tan finish) with cedar on all the outside surfaces. Nice accessories available too. We just ordered a few extra bumpers which are very easy to install and move around. So far, we love the dock. Thanks for the comments, and "Bear" thanks you too.

We had them at Sea World San Diego and they were great!

I am in process of moving and found a new home for my boat. A private neighborhood marina off my new neighborhood that has a few malibu's and moomba's and looks like I will be the first MC. The best part is my house is less than a block away. Walk down in the morning for a session.

Can you put a lift in or are you keeping it in the water?

I am keeping it in the water for the next season. I know blisters can be a concern but will have to do for now. I also live next door to the public boat ramp so I can take it out for periods just to dry it out. Several boats have lifts in this marina but not willing to spend money on that right now when all I am doing is leasing the slip from the actual owner right now.
