  • Boat dock creativity / advice

    i live on a lagoon in NJ and have 50’ of bulkhead and an even shorter dock. Anyone have any creative suggestions how i can fit two boats? I’ve been keeping my buddies 32’ Seavee while I’m on the boat hunt and now I’m spoiled with having it in my backyard for when we go offshore. I’ve been looking at 20 and 22’ shamrocks.

    A lift on each side of your dock and if needed a dock extension...it is just money. Haha.

      see that’s the issue... I’d have no problem spending a lot of money! It’s the fact i have to do everything on a budget that really makes things difficult!!

    "Swamp Yankee" way. Just raft them together. Not doing it right unless your 4 deep.

      I was considering pushing my dock out to 8’ then tucking the narrow beam between the 32 and the bulkhead. Neighbors are already trying to figure out what’s going on.

    I have 68' of bulkhead. 26'er, 20'er, 14'er and a 16'er. When my son comes we tie his 25 off to my 26. I'll get a picture.

        How wide is the lagoon? Are you on the end? I have roughly 70’ across and I’m one from the end so I’m trying To be mindful of the neighbors! If only i can find the right shammy though. This search has proved more difficult than i imagined.

            I have some customers around Atlantic Beach that live on real narrow canals, they park their boats on an angle to the dock so that they can park multiple boats at the same dock. They don't have very wide lots with dock.

              What are you looking for in a 20 and how tight a budget? I may know of a possible deal depending on what you're looking for.

                I’m mainly looking for center consoles and would prefer the wide beam. I’m looking at $10k or less depending.

                  What I know of is both narrow and cuddy. Oh well.
