Boat Docks Are More Complex Than They Might Seem

At first glance, a boat dock might look like a somewhat unsophisticated design. Simply a few bits of wood attached to a couple of logs stuck into the water, attach a ladder, stick on some pieces of metal to tie your boat off on, and you’re set. Easy, right?

Boat docks are a far more complicated construction than they initially appear. Before there’s any mention of the architecture, the permitting process alone is incredibly complicated. If you are looking to build a dock or are in need of dock repairs, you will most definitely want a company who knows if what type of permit or other written authorization is needed from the State of Florida, the county government, the United States Army Corps of Engineers…

If you’re repairing or even replacing your current dock, authorization still needs to be submitted. Do you know if you live on an artificial waterway? How would you find out? Is it the waterway private or local government? Is it under one thousand square feet? Would the boat dock repair or replacement fall under 403.813(1)(d). F.S. and or 62-330.051(5)(6), F.A.C.? Will the ACOE approve the SPGP? What does that even mean?
