Are there any regulations or permits required for installing a floating boat dock and PWC port in Dallas Fort Worth?

There aren’t regulations or permits required for installing a floating dock system or PWC port in the Dallas or Fort Worth area unless your floating dock happens to count as a floating cabin. If you’re not planning to live on your boat dock or watercraft, odds are it doesn’t count. Of course, contact your local government for more detailed information because it’s better to be safe than sorry.

What materials are used to build floating boat docks and PWC ports for sale in Dallas Fort Worth?

Since Dallas is more inland than some waterfronts in Texas, building a floating dock for jet skis or other boats from a wider array of materials is possible. This is important as brackish saltwater can challenge even the sturdiest dock constructions. PolyDock Products use primarily rotationally molded polyethylene, which ensures that the modules are consistently built, highly durable on account of no seams, stable, and easy to connect with one another. The light tan color and UV inhibitors also make the dock segments comfortable to walk on—even in the Texas sun and heat. The dock remains attractive after years of use and adds to the durability and longevity of the entire system.

Where can I find boat lift accessories?


If your local waterfront dealer sells boat docks and boat lifts near you, the odds are that they will also have boat lift accessories available. Boat lift accessories and parts are designed to fit seamlessly with your boat lift system for fun and function. They can range from polyethylene tires and wheel caddies for easy installation and removal to a canopy lift loft to store water toys or other lift and dock accessories. You can have a waterfront just your boat lift, but accessories like bunks, guides, stops, and more are essential if you want it to perform its very best and protect your boat.

ShoreMaster dealers not only have ShoreMaster boat lifts, but they also carry the accessories you’re looking for. If they don’t have something in stock, they can easily get it from us.

Are there any maintenance tips for boat docks and PWC ports in the Dallas Fort Worth area?

Because the Dallas Fort Worth area is a little more inland, your options for boat dock and PWC port construction materials expand. This means you can invest in high-quality materials that can withstand many different conditions, including brackish saltwater. Because PolyDock products are made from rotationally molded polyethylene, a durable material that requires little maintenance compared to wood, composite, or steel boat docks, your floating dock maintenance is minimal. 

Can I customize the design and color of my floating boat dock or PWC port?

PolyDock products come in different models in a range of sizes and weight capacities to ensure that your floating boat dock or PWC port properly supports your watercraft. We offer tan, gray, and blue rotationally molded polyethylene for many of our products, with aluminum components where metal needs to touch the water. The layout and configuration of your floating boat dock system is fully customizable and up to you — although your Dallas Fort Worth dealer can give you some advice if you’re looking for tips.
