Where is that, Roonie? It looks like Newport Shores to me. We are on Mercer Island.

My family boat dock and PWC dock in the California Delta. The stern of our X2 is at the lower right docked at our neighbor's dock.

We just remodeled our dock to add an upper deck. Water is 18 feet deep at the end of the dock and I got tired of everyone climbing on the A roof to jump off. So wee add an partial upper deck and stairs. The concrete blocks are were I am adding some flagstone steps.

Beautiful dock and boathouse, vision! What kind of decking did you use? Nice Job.

Weatherbest Decking - Tuscan Walnut. About 20% cheaper than Trex.

Not my docks, but on my lake - great engineering on the first one, the second one is just a classic old dock that caught my eye:

And here are a couple of old pics of mine - though it still looks pretty much the same (as the second picture) - just fresh paint and decking.

Water level looks a "little" high in the 2003 pic.

Interesting boat lift in that first pic. Amazed at how high it is off of the water. Any more pics or details on the boat house?

The lake (Logan Martin in Alabama (not Martin)) is fairly stable in the summer so most of the docks are fixed - usually with pilings. The water level drops 5 feet in the winter. If you have a steep enough lot then you can still access your dock when the water is down (I can't - my dock becomes a deck). Instead of pilings you can see steel I-Beams set in concrete. You can enter the boathouse from the top of the yard. I'm guessing he has a remote on the lift - just get in the boat and go - year 'round. It is very cool to see.
