    Here’s what I did on the side dock. Makes it easy to pull up and throw the bungees on if we are coming in for lunch or fill the cooler. No need to mess with bumpers or dock lines.



    I’ll take some pics of a few of my storage solutions to share later today.

    Yea I believe they call those a “dock wheel” and should do the job. I looked into them but the ones I found online didn’t have the best reviews for longevity. Here’s some pics:

    Your setup looks great!! The rollers I am speaking of aren't dock wheels as I saw those on google. I will try to find a picture of them today and post it up. Great idea for the side of your dock too!!

    Life jacket storage above the board rack, bought these hangers: New! Life Jacket Hanger, Storage- Life Preserver, Life Vest Hanger & Storage, Life Jacket Dryer, Drying Rack, Drying Hangers (Set of 5 Hangers); Boating Hanger & Storage (Black (Set of 10)) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DFPV23H..._PFbjFbFBKPPVP

    I put a killer (but fairly inexpensive) stereo on the dock complete with 12” sub too, and sent WiFi down to it from the house so we can use an echo dot to control the music. No telling how many times my dad has told Alexa to play “pontoon” this summer lol. Even the kids enjoy DJing. I’ll take some pics of the stereo setup this weekend.

    Those hangers are awesome! I will definitely be picking some of those up! I am really torn on how I want to store our boards though. I am putting them in the closet off of the garage so I have room to do horizontal racks but a vertical one like yours definitely takes up less room.

    I am having to plan everything out on the boat house now as the structure is all steel so adding things later on will be a little more difficult. I am having my contractor weld on pieces of 3" flat bar where I am wanting to locate things like your drying rack. I am already doing this for 2 retractable extension cord reels for charging the boats as well as the fans I am putting down there so if you have any other convenient things like that I appreciate the input. I am just trying to get it all covered so it turns out very clean.

    That is awesome about your sound system on your Boat House!! I am really hoping our wifi will make it out to ours because I am planning to use a Sonos unit down there for music and my cameras will be on wifi too. Did you have to do anything special to get your wifi out there? I am planning to use the Nest Wifi Router and Points to try to get mine to reach.

    All steel?! That is legit!

    I used a linksys re6500hg WiFi extender on the back porch of the house, and then hooked a Remo WiFi antenna to one of the antenna ports on the back and pointed it towards the dock. Probably not as good as a point to point setup would be but this gets us by. I also used the same antenna on the security camera on the dock to send that signal to the house.

    Ya I would say 95% if all of the boat houses on our lake are steel just the way the 2 builders do them. I am sure they have their reasoning but we didn’t ask.

    Okay that is all good to know on the wifi do you happen know or have a guess as to the linear distance between the back of your house/patio and your dock?
