There's long. And then there's looooong. This double-deck dock required a 500 foot walkway just to get to a small dredged clearing. To get to open water would have easily been another 400 feet. At least the platform at the end of the walkway is worth the walk. The platform has an upper deck viewing area to allow for "panoramic vistas" of East Lake Toho. It also has a launch platform off of the front face to allow for easy boarding during the low water time of year. The orientation of the stairs provided a superb storage area for a dock box and other items, resulting in a clean usable deck area. The stainless steel cable railing provides a strong barrier without the look and view obstruction of a traditional wooden picket railing. All in all, this dock is the perfect start to a great day on the lake, or a late afternoon round of cocktails to wind down.
