Brian that is an interesting design.

Do the two separate walkways make the casting deck a lot more stable?

I don't have a lot of reference, but it is pretty stable. I thought having two anchor points would help keep it from swaying in higher winds, and put less stress on the anchor chain retainer. I can also disconnect and have two separate docks, swim dock, etc.

We need a little more dirt brought in on top of the dam to level it off and then we will construct a step the full width of the dock. After a drying period we plan to stain. We did all the work ourselves and probably have $4k into it.













Welcome to the forum, Chris - thanks for posting! Stick around, we look forward to learning more about your pond and goals and will help wherever we can.

Pretty neat dock.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.
