Haha, yes itís since been straightened. The electrician had installed the light facing toward the house and I had just moved it over the walkway. I took the pic to show my wife.

40’ left to go. Then wash the end down and build a fish cleaning station.

So 2x8 instead of hog slats. Any reason?

Piles are maybe 10-12' apart. Stringers 3x10. Just guessing.

Looks nice. Is the island getting any closer to normal. Never been, but parents and friends always loved it there.

I’ve redone this dock , partially, three times in the last 4 years. Probably going to have to do it again in the future. So, not wanting to put a ton of money into it. I used 2x6 ground contact treated decking boards. I’ve nailed them down with 16d galvanized nails instead of stainless screws. Thinking that the next storm can take the deck boards and leave everything else. The end got pulled up because it is all bolted and screwed. 130’ went away from here and we found two 10’ sections. The rest ended up in the gulfstream. Going to wash the end down when we can get equipment out there to the end.

Is there anyone here that can recommend a company manufacturer of the super padded guarding that you will generally see on pilings? Usually it's 5-6" thick and almost looks like its a canvas/fire hose material? I'd like to line the whole side of the dock with it if possible.

I still think some sort of a hinged decking surface that folds up and latches to the pilings, making it vertical and leaving only minimal sub-structure and pilings to take the wave/tidal force would work. Anybody else?

have you considered going with a material meant for surges like this or an equivalent: https://thruflow.com/products/surge/

I'll send an upclose picture of the cleaning station, dock boxes, and underwater lights when it's dark out.

Random question, but did that OM used to be in Islamorada? There was a 31 OM that sat between Lower Mat, and Layton, for years. It's been gone for 5 at least. I miss seeing it. Looks very identical to yours. Right down to the 250 OX66s.

I bought the boat in 2013 from a guy who used it as a tender , he lived in coral gables.

OP here - Glad to see this thread still alive!

Made a couple improvements to my dock:
1) Re-decked main pier and deck at end of dock.
2) Removed un-used pilings and replaced with Cantilever lift for my 15' whaler.
3) Cut most pilings to match heights and added solar lighting for walk way
4) Added aluminum fixed table
5) Built deck over old Ski float and made a floating dock
6) Added underwater lighting right at the end of main pier

This picture taken right before Hurricane Michael.....unbelievably, my dock made it through about 90% in tact. All docks after mine going out of the bayou were completely totaled.



This is how it looked when I bought it:
