The cement pad will be 4-feet long and 6-feet wide. The concrete will be mixed from bags at least 150-feet away from the shoreline and transported using wheel barrels. The dock construction will consist of four (4), 3-inch diameter galvanized steel pipes. Boat lift construction will be supported with 1.5-inch diameter galvanized steel pipes. The prefabricated dock and lift will be affixed to the supports and fastened in place. No vegetation will be disturbed during construction.

A variety of hand tools, an air compressor, an air hammer, a floating barge, and pickup trucks will be used to complete the project.
