Boat Docks: 3 Cool New Ideas

Boat docks are an incredibly versatile way to change your boating experience in Clearwater. Sure, maybe most people just see them as a means of getting to the good stuff, the open seas, but with the right ideas and a helping hand, you can transform your jetty into a place where you want to hang out and spend time!

Deck Out the Dock

Whether it’s a holiday season or not, there’s no reason why you can’t deck your space in Clearwater to the nines! String up lights, hang a sign with a fun saying (‘No shirt, no shoes, no problem!’), or get crafty and construct a built-in hammock over the side.

To make things even more festive, consider adding other decorations like colorful bunting, paper lanterns, or DIY-ing some cool towel racks. Just be sure that you securely fasten anything that might blow around in the wind— you don’t want to have to chase down your Tampa Bay Lightning flag after it blows away!

Sleek and Shiny

Chrome and metallic finishes can make boat docks look like they came straight from the year 2030, giving your backyard an exciting, modern vibe. With clean cut lines, highly modern technology like no-profile lifts, and functional designs, you can make your pier stand out from the rest in Clearwater.

Consider adding fun elements like stairs that descend into the water, solar-powered LED lights, or a minimalist-style fire pit to give it an even more futuristic feel.

Make it Fun

Install a bench that sits off the side, just above the water, so family and friends can relax, dip their feet in the water, and enjoy. You can also construct a tiki bar in a straw-roofed hut, making you the coolest place to host gatherings and parties! If you go this route, remember always to have a designated driver if you are serving any alcohol and not to allow any imbibers to operate machinery or equipment.

Another way you can add a splash of fun to your boat dock is with a slide. Be sure that when you are installing the slide that the output reaches far enough out into the water that there is no risk of someone sliding off and hitting the deck.
