Getting ready to build a boat house/dock with lift; our lake is down 8' vertically over the past 5 years. Thinking of a floating dock that can be moved if the lake ever returns to normal vs building a permanent dock/roof structure that would be way too high off the water and out too far in the lake.

I believe I saw a thread on this site that mentioned a floating dock with roof that supported a boat lift, but can't find it at this point; believe it was manufactured in Canada.

Here's a pic that shows another homeowners dock on this lake. Any ideas are welcomed, pros/cons, etc...tks, mac

I haven't seen a floating dock that supports a cable lift. In my case, we have a floating dock with a hydrohoist (floating lift).

was it floathouse.net ? Although I'm not sure if they would support a lift - definitely worth a call to find out.

Here is the house we refer to as "The Mullet". You know, business in the front & party in the back. The dock is still waiting on a new 8' section to extend it out equal on both sides. Had to do some rearranging after upgrading to a bigger boat = bigger lift.

That boat is up there mac. It's like having a car lift---you could put another boat underneath that thing.

Not mine but a lake house at Smith Lake we rent every year. I was holding on to either a wakeboard handle or a beer the entire trip. Where I'm floating in this pic is 80' deep. And that's a shallow spot.
