Dock Construction and Repair at Grand Lake

But wait… do you have your own waterfront real estate? Then maybe a private dock is best for you and your boat.

One of the best things about Grand Lake is the ability to maintain your shoreline and have a private dock.

There is little better when it comes to lake living than having your own private dock where your boat is secure, the family can swim and play and it’s all yours.

And one of the realities of having a private dock is the burden of maintenance and repair that comes with it.

Naturally, there are rules and regulations when it comes to private docks on Grand Lake, including annual inspections and transfer permits when the attached real estaet is sold.

For everything related to that, it’s best to go straight to the source. The Grand River Dam Authority.

You can visit their website at www.grda.com or call the GRDA Office of Ecosystems Management at (918) 782-4726 to get your dock questions answered.

Boat, Dock and Equipment Insurance

If you’ve got a boat… you need to have that baby insured. Even if it’s paid off.

Boat insurance will typically cover damage to your boat, motor, trailer, and personal items in the boat.

Most importantly, it should protect you against liability lawsuits and medical payments.

Check out one of these featured Grand Lake area insurance professionals to make sure your boat, watercraft, dock, and equipment are covered.
