Default Erosion Control

Trying to get some input here. Trying to get a contractor to follow up with in Lauderdale is a pain in the arse. We have 75 feet on a narrow canal. Canít do a seawall b/c weíd have to remove Gumbos and thatís a no go for the admiral and we have some mangroves. Trying to keep it as natural as possible but also stop some erosion and building a small dock. Any advice here?

Rock rip-rap along bank.
Will control the erosion, then put a small walkway pier out over it to the dock.

Kind of what Iíve been thinking, the hard part is dealing with contractors down here. Had two out to quote and never heard back. Guessing itís not a big enough job for them...

I think rip-rap on top of a fabric (not sure which), starting with small rock and layering out to larger rock on top, is the only way to go.

I had fabric, riprap (4 medium sized dump truck loads), and fill (1 dump load) installed in June. Cost was $11k for a regular 85í wide yard....but thatís a Brevard, cash price.

Looks good cheetah exactly what Iím looking for. Did they put any sheathing in front to keep the rocks from sliding?

Sheathing does extend beyond the Ďbaseí rocks...I donít think in a real calculated fashion just the approximate size of the base rocks plus some margin. My canal isnít very steep though. Everything was hand set and my back hurt just watching these guys work.
