Indianapolis Boat Docks

Indianapolis is a big city, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to get away from it all and explore the region’s natural wonders. Brush up on your local laws and regulations, get those permits and licenses in order, and get started!

If you’re in the process of creating or redoing your shoreline haven, you’re going to want to start with your dock. You want something that will be secure under your feet and strong enough to withstand midwestern weather patterns, the natural wear and tear of marine life, and the seasonal installation and removal process. You want something that exists in harmony with the quirks of your shoreline.

No matter what kind of dock system you’re looking into, yours needs to be made with high-quality materials and expert-level engineering from designers that know the water well. Materials like marine-grade aluminum and some treated polyethylenes are better for handling water than others. Wheel-in or sectional docks are all-around good choices, especially for shallower water that stays at a consistent level all season or can have periods of roughness that require extra stability. If your water bed is particularly deep, the level can fluctuate widely inside a season, or you’re looking for something that has minimal impact on the bottom, consider investing in a floating boat dock instead. Either way, getting an opinion from a local dealer that knows your water as well as you do will help you make this decision.


Boat Dock Accessories for Sale

The lakes of Indianapolis are great places to set up your boat dock and boat lift, but there’s so much more you can have on the water. Think about everything you like to do outdoors on your dock, and imagine accessories for it. Rod holders for fishers. Seating and tables for relaxing and entertaining. Grills for cooking for your family and friends. Places to store your canoes, kayaks, paddles, and other sporting equipment by the water but safely out of the way. Handrails to keep you from falling in the water and ladders and steps for getting out of the water after a refreshing swim. And those are just a few of the possibilities that ShoreMaster has to offer. We have the largest selection of boat dock accessories for sale, so we’re sure to have something that fits your needs.

My waterfront in Indianapolis has shallow water.  What type of bock dock is best for shallow water?

Sectional and wheel-in dock systems will work better for shallow water shorelines in Indianapolis. Floating dock systems are a better fit for shores that have very deep bottoms or water levels that fluctuate during the season. If you have other considerations–like your bottom is particularly rocky or muddy, for example–it’s definitely worth talking to a waterfront expert at your local ShoreMaster dealer.

What lift system is best for Indianapolis lakes?

Your lift system has similar requirements to your dock system, so consider your water and bottom conditions, weather, water depth, shoreline, and other shoreline conditions. However, you should also consider what kind of boat you have: a PWC lift has much less power than a lift designed for tritoons. ShoreMaster has information on what you need to figure out your required boat lift capacity, and your local dealer can also help you figure out what you need as long as you come in with the right information.
