functional 32' dock

10 posts in this topic

Free to a good home. I have a 32' dock in 2-16' sections that is free to anyone willing to load / pick it up. I'm moving from my current location and have scored a newer aluminum dock as part of the deal on the new place. It's an old, heavy steel/re-bar frame that I've been using for 5 years simply by slapping some new treated plywood on it. There are 2 posts/poles for the 1st shallow section and the 'wheel assembly' for the second, deep section. I don't want to separate parts, all or none as it is fully functional as is. The dock is in Spicer (~10 miles N of Willmar), come and get it! Please reply to forum if interested. Thanks.

I'm very interested. Is the dock a standard 4' width? Could I pick up this weekend?

I'd like it out of the yard ASAP as I have a gentleman coming this weekend to buy a boat lift as well - it'll be a lot easier to get both items out of there at the same time, given the other "fall storage crud" in the yard, my upcoming move and need to finish raking back there.

Granddad and powerworm, I guess the first to be able to get here can have it... I will be around home all day tomorrow (Friday) and this weekend (don't gun hunt) and it can be picked up at any time over that span.

Granddad - can you get here prior to your deer hunting weekend since you technically replied to the posting first? If not, it's powerworm's this weekend...

Thanks for replying Grand Dad...

Powerworm, the dock is yours if you can come get it this weekend. Otherwise, Grand Dad lays claim to it Monday!

Oh yeah, and to answer your question; yes, it is 4' standard width...

I'm a (Contact Us Please) and answered the width question while sitting in my office...a mistake.

The dock is only 32" wide, a big "FYI" to powerworm and/or granddad and others...

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
