Default Post up your dock and fish cleaning station pics

I am looking for some ideas for my under construction dock. I was thinking about going with one of these, with water and 30amp all in one stations. I also want water incorporated into my fish cleaning station. What do you guys wish you would have put in before they poured the concrete? Thanks for any reply's.

Thats my dock and my cleaning station. You guys did check and make sure that woman you wanted cleaned fish, Right?

Picking but the solar lights they make now you can turn on and off are bright enough to install after everything is completed. I'd use solar. That way you never have to worry about it.

Throw an extra 1" pvc pipe or two in for Cameras, run to where you'd prob want them, low voltage stuff,
can't hurt.

Not sure how long your dock is but I wish I had power at both ends in addition to next to the boat. Water in more than one place to hose off dock. Light should shine down not out. Put in power for underwater light too. Salt water pump for fish cleaning. Maybe a davit for bait pen.

Mike, the Marathon Deli had wine for my wife. I am easier to please.

The adjacent Plaza Grill was very good, not typical Keys fare, I would recommend without hesitation based on our experience. I will be here for another week and may go again.

Don't forget about the Walgreen's store.

Mike, My dock is still at stand still, but I am doing some of the same thinking as you.

I am putting in 5 water water hookups, several city and several cistern. Power at the fish station for electric knife, Lighting above fish station, and of course power for lift, bat chargers, and underwater lights (future feature)

Try the Barracuda also, it is really good. And for just regular booze like I said try The Brass Monkey liquor store right next to the bar, I think they have the best prices in town for booze. Have fun down there.

They have a good start on mine, the vinyl wall is up and filled with concrete and passed inspection yesterday. I have a drop cam up and have been watching their progress. Now that the new seawall is up they can start jack hammering all the old concrete up. Sorry I missed you last trip, I had so many things to do in such a short time. I also had to pull one of my jet skis apart that my lovely daughter managed to break again. Another thing I want to do is put a stainless pipe in the concrete right next to the fish cleaning station for a nice market umbrella support. I have learned my lesson when the fishing is good and I am out cleaning fish for hours in the sun.

Forgot to mention one of our members here Flot suggested these lights, I just got them a few days ago and they are really nice, they will be perfect in the stairs. Thanks Flot.

Nothing too fancy. Most recently we used the fish cleaning station to whack up a pig for a party we had last month.

Nice Chris, where did you get that table? My old dock had a preformed concrete table that just has a plastic cutting board in place. I would not mind going your route, and maybe adding one of these. If that can hold a pig it can certainly hold any dolphin I could catch.

The table is actually pieced together from two tables. The top is from another table. I have the one pictured here, had it at my old house on the end of the dock. It hangs completely over the water. I didn't want that setup on this dock because sometimes I dock another boat right in front of the table and I didn't want the boat hitting the table. So there was already a much smaller table on the dock so I just put the top from my much larger table on the existing frame.

You can get them here. http://old.yourshipstore.com/Fishtable.htm

Default Recommendation Dock Handyman

I'd like to put in a fish cleaning table and a lamp at the end of the dock (which means running electrical out the dock). I'm too busy / lazy to do this myself. I'd like to hire someone who knows something about this. I'm in Southwest Florida. Any suggestions?
