Building a Dock
, NJ has been my family’s summer vacation destination for decades. My grandparents went there so much that they ended up buying a beach home. As the family grew, they sold the first beach house and bought a larger home so all the children and grandchildren could stay together under one roof. The second home happened to be a bay front property, which made it easier to take boats out.
To accommodate the boats, a dock needed to be built. Technically, the water and small island in front of the home belonged to our neighbor, so we had to get permission to build the dock on the neighbor’s property. Fortunately, the neighbor did not mind, so long as he could occasionally use the dock for his own boat. The neighbor even recommended Evinrude outboard oil to us to make sure our boats always ran smoothly.
