Dock Manufacture and/or repair

Well - dang it, the high water followed by some 60+ mph winds did a number on my dock. I got a call from the neighbor that my dock was sitting on their straight arm.

My dock has some damage from where the straight arms used to be attached to it.

So for that angle I am looking for a dock repair company, hopefully near Pomme De Terre, Lake of the Ozarks or Springfield, MO area.


We may go ahead and replace the dock and push it out another 20+ feet into the cove. Any recommendations for dock manufactures? I like my neighbors dock that was built by Shoremaster, but they are no longer in the area.

Do you all have any dock constructions does and do not's? I don't have access to electricity (yet) if that comes into your suggestion.

Guys out of NH do some nice docks (FWM is the company name). I think they would ship but not sure how they handle areas like that. Nice group of guys to chat with though if you wanna atleast shoot them an email.

Is you lake a constant level lake or do you have floating docks with a walkway? I haven't used them, but Wahoo Docks seems to make some beautiful floating docks and has dealers in MO. www.wahoodocks.com

Our lake level changes a lot (35+ feet), I have seen from 825ft - 860ft with Corp desired depth of 839ft. We have long walkways.

The best seem to be wahoo but they come at a certain price point.

Check out dockreality.com as they have a LOT of nice used units for sale. I found them looking for a lift

Does it have to be a certified dock repair place to do work on them? Just thinking I can bring some stuff up and fix it for you given how bad it is... Will trade for pulls / beer.. I can weld/ fab and have access to about everything I canthink of we would need to fix it..

Big question is can you get it out of the water?

Pics?

I'm headed to k.c. Next weekend and could probably stop by and take a peek at it to see if I think I can handle it.

Here is some of the damage shot. My dock should be centered between the two neighboring docks. The right (as viewed from land looking at the dock) straight arm broke the holding rod at the shore mount point. I don't have a picture of that, but it probably just needs the rod replaced the attaching points are ok.

I would more than willing provide beers of your flavor and many rides for help!

I don't think I can get it out of the water, but have never tried. It is accessible from land now (lake level is down).

Honestly looking at the pics that looks like a pretty simple fix.. Some good new angle. Some welding rod and some time..

I just wasn't see about welding in the water.. Now that I see what's wrong I think that could all be done on the water given you had something to hold it in place while pieces were being fixed one at a time..

Pomme de terre lake right?


The big arms that are supposed to keep it straight, are they anchored underwater? Just wonder if the under water end is bent too.
