Docks and lifts

Wood is cheap - aluminum is expensive, so if you don't need to be able to easily pull a dock then you buy cheap. Same reason that some folks have all aluminum docks and some folks have aluminum framed with wood treads. The full aluminum are better and last longer, but they cost 2x as much

I have a footing aluminum dock, 24' x 28', with a 24' x 10 ' slip with 4800 lb HydroHoist boat lift. Very secure. Also decking is Brazilian IPE, you need titanium drill bits to drill into it. Very hard wood and it looks like mahogany after staining it. Takes a bit of maintenance every 3 years to stain but it's worth if. Also covered so the boat stays out of the sun.
