Better late than never...

We finally got "the" boat. After much discussion we ended up with a Leopard 40 cat.

I finished the dock off with 4 - 8' bumpers and one 6' bumper from Scalise Marine. They were flex something, similar to the ones most marinas use.

We had Snyder Dredging perform the dredge work; fantastic to work with. Did a bang up job. Give yourself 3 months to get the permit to dredge from the county. I was in Broward and had to have 75 cubic yards removed. 15 mins from Hillsboro Inlet.

Sherman Electric installed the Eaton Lighthouse power pedestal with dual 30A, single 50A, w/ water & GFI. Once again, fantastic job! Got four quotes before deciding to go with Sherman. Highly recommended. Customer service has been fantastic with detailed explanation during pre and post install process.

We got our cleats from Sailorman in Ft. Lauderdale. Got 6 12" aluminum S cleats which were over 50% less at Sailorman than what West Marine and BOW were asking for the same cleat.

Installed cleats and bumpers myself which makes me feel better about leaving our girl all alone.
