Recent Review: Jerry's team is incredibly professional and prompt. We need to insure the hoist is installed when we get the pontoon out of storage and they always meet the schedule for this to happen. He timed the installation of the new dock and the annual installation of the hoist perfectly. We can't recommend him strongly enough!!!!!!

Recent Review: Our prior dock installer Andrew Minock sold his business to one of his crew and the new owner/installer could not properly install our dock.  He tried, but had made a mess of it, so that the platform was only about 2 inches out of the water and wracked severely when walked on.  The installer had left 4 of the legs on the shore (uninstalled) and put one of the shorter legs in a place that needed a longer leg (even though one of the legs on the shore was much longer).  It turns out part of the blame for the installation problem was with the type of legs that Andrew had chosen for the dock when we purchased the dock package from him (and our naivety in being inexperienced dock purchasers).  There are two types of legs: A more expensive type that can be easily adjusted from on top of the dock and another less expensive type that needs to be adjusted in the water.  Andrew's package had the less expensive type, which is very difficult to install in deeper mucky water.  In our case, the end of the dock is in 6-foot deep water so that we can dive off it.  Andrew had had no problems installing the less expensive legs because he was like a fish in the water and could hold his breath for almost 5 minutes.  I've since learned that for most people, the other type of leg makes installation MUCH easier.  I discovered this from both the dock manufacturer and John Bisel, our new installer.    John has been very professional and helpful.  He came out first to look at the messed up dock and give us an estimate.  He then came out and removed the dock so that he could figure out what needed to be done.  He explained to us the difficulties with installing the type of legs we had in deep, mucky water.  We ordered 4 new adjustable-from-on-top legs with wheels from him.  He then came out again to install the dock and add a diagonal brace for support.  The dock is now functional and more stable in the water than it has ever been before.  We also look forward to a good, long-term relationship with John to remove the dock each fall and re-install it each spring.  John, thanks!

DMinock'S Waterfront Sales And Contracting
Brian Treanor ("Little B") bought the dock installation company from Andrew Minock last year (after Brian had worked with Andy on our same dock for the past 2 years).  In trying to install our dock this spring, Brian could not figure out which legs went where on the dock, how to clip the pieces of the dock together, or how to brace the dock to keep it from wracking.  After almost 4 hours, he and his crew had installed the dock improperly such that its floor was only about 2 inches out of the water and wracked severely when walked on.  He had left 4 of the legs on the shore (uninstalled) and put one of the shorter legs in a place that needed a longer leg (even though one of the legs on the shore was much longer), which is why the dock was so low in the water.  He also didn't understand how to connect a cross brace for stability, so the braces were left either on the shore or dangling from one of the legs in the water.  When he was "finished," Brian told me he didn't like working in mucky lakes, so he was getting rid of all the customers like me who had a mucky shoreline.  He promised me he would find me a new dock installer to fix the dock because he wasn't coming back.  He knew that the dock would need to be re-installed to function, but at first he still wanted to charge me his normal $150 because of the time he and his crew spent.  We negotiated so that I ended up giving him a $110 tarp that I didn't need.  He never got back to me with the name of another installer even though I emailed him, so I was left to search on my own.  When I finally found an installer who could do the job, he needed to remove the messed up dock and start over, so I had to pay first for him to uninstall the dock and then again to re-install it.  In Brian's defense (sort of--because I don't think he has/had enough experience to buy the company), it turns out part of the blame for the installation problem lies with the prior owner Andrew Minock and the type of legs that Andrew chose for the dock when we purchased the dock package from him (and our naivety in being inexperienced dock purchasers).  There are two types of legs:  A more expensive type that can be easily adjusted from on top of the dock and another less expensive type that needs to be adjusted in the water.  Andrew's package had the less expensive type, which is more difficult to install in deeper mucky water.  In our case, the end of the dock is in 6-foot deep water so that we can dive off it.  Andrew had no problems installing the less expensive legs because he was like a fish in the water and could hold his breath for almost 5 minutes.  I've since learned that for most people, the other type of leg makes installation MUCH easier.  I discovered this from the dock manufacturer and the new installer.  Based on my last conversation with Brian, he will change the name of his company in the near future due to these issues.
