I thought they were all solid docks and had the rod bolted to the pilings so the anchor line could go up in a surge. I was told #7 was 750/mo but it was supposed to be because it was the closest to the lake. Maybe it's the floater.

Im in 4 and the roof is easily 30 feet above the bimini, and it's 25' above the water.
Yeah, likely that pier is the floating one. It was the first of its kind in the area. And now I am told LYC has one as well.

Just an fyi...

I took a minute to ride around blue dolphin. There are no floating docks here at all. So I guess the $750/mo for the upper crust is due to its location.

Sorry, haven't been to the forum in a while. I'm paying 313 a month right now. Not floating docks or cover though.

Seabrook Marina has some new covered floating docks with controlled access in addition to the older non-floaters where I am. Too rich for my blood. lol.

Kevin, I took a walk over to B dock, saw your boat but you either saw me coming and hid, or weren't there

Well, Michelle and I meet a bunch of fine folk this weekend and got to climb on some great boats. Many thanks to everyone! I still can't believe all the TFer's in the area haven't met each other yet and think we should plan on picking a time and place where we can all meet and visit a while. How about next weekend? Any suggestions on a location?

I'll go look again, but the dock was bolted to the pilings so unless the pilings float....

Hey John, looks like it's just you and me LOL. Our boat is on the hard. Good news, no blisters....bad news, generator was going to cost $5K to fix properly so bit the bullet on a new one. Ouch!

Anyway, they say I may be back in the water again Friday but assume that means Monday

Well the rain over the last few days has delayed work....so no boat this weekend. We were trying to remember when we last did not have a boat for the weekend and couldn't. What do people do that don't have boats Thanks Kevin for the offer!

I have always pondered that. I went one summer without a boat. I was a boat owner by September!!!

There are no floating docks in Blue Dolphin. There are six covered buildings/piers though.

Lakewood built a floating dock pier last year. The roof does not float. As the floating dock goes up it get closer to the roof. Weirdest thing there are fixed roof piles between the boats and the floating piers.

I think Seabrook has two new floating dock/roof piers.

Yep I saw that and agree. Definitely a little strange.

8 or 9 covered piers depending on how you want to count #8. It wraps around the corner.

Well Monday turned into Wednesday but we are finally back in the water. BM Boatworks did an awesome job and were reasonably priced. Now all I need is to get the life raft serviced/repacked and the EPRIB serviced and we are ready for Florida/Bahamas in November.
