I have a new pond starting next week. Will probably shake out at around 2.5 acres give or take how ambitious the excavator is.
My question for now is regarding a dock. I searched some and couldn't find much on here, but figured there are probably some smart guys here.

I have the room and the manpower to help, I'd love to build a patio style dock 20-30' out, so a 4-5' wide lane leading out to a platform dock. Was wondering if anyone had done any pictorials on it or what the thoughts are here. I'm sure a lot of you have done it, just looking for some ideas and thoughts on it.

I used telephone poles on a 5x30 fixed walkway and 16x24 dock on a 2.7 acre pond. The decking that I went with is maintenance free. It doesn’t splinter, get hot, need staining and is made in the USA. You can see it here.
Btw I’m glad that I didn’t build it any smaller.
