Janice I.

“Our cottage neighbor recommended Captains Choice to us. We visited the showroom and ordered our dock after discussion and advice from Trent. We were surprised at how quickly it would be available for delivery and how affordable! We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful new dock and the service we received!”

Matthew C.

We purchased a 20 section aluminum dock back in 2016 and have been very pleased with the performance and ease of putting it in and taking it out. We love that it doesn’t get hot like our old wood dock and the solar LED lights let us find our way home at night. Captains Choice delivered and installed at our cabin. Great service and company.

Alain G.

“We purchased 19 sections of their 8 ft HD series dock with sure step. The product and craftmanship is second to none. Beautiful strong and best pricing around. Also the team at Captain’s Choice is phenomenal to deal with, courteous and easy to deal with. We made a mistake in estimating the pipe length and needed longer, Schneider fabrication is going out of their way to accommodate. I highly recommend.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are your prices so competitive?

1. We operate with very low overhead.

2. We manufacture and sell in high volumes

3. We are selling manufacturer direct eliminating dealer markup.

Because your prices are so competitive, does that affect the quality?

1. NO, because we want repeat business, our products sell themselves to the neighbors of current customers. We absolutely refuse to cut corners on quality which allows us to have a great warranty and stand behind our products. 

2. NO, since we manufacture year round we don’t have to operate on large margins which allows us to manufacture excellent products and still sell them for great prices.

What makes your product better than the competition?

NO hidden costs after the sale!! We always sell everything COMPLETE, which means you are getting everything necessary for a complete and finished installation. Example: End plates for all exposed dock ends. Hydraulic lifts include the battery, solar panel, key fob, etc.

Do you offer delivery?

Yes, but the cost and lead time is based on when you place your order and your location.

How do your docks connect?

Very simple, no nuts or bolts. We have a standard and deluxe quick connect system that is very strong and yet very easy to connect the sections together. Then just simply insert a clevis pin to keep them from coming apart.

How do your dock posts adjust?

Very Simple. Just loosen two set screws on the post brackets, slide your posts through the pipe bracket sleeve until your dock is at the desired height. Then tighten the set screws back up and you are done.

What makes your hydraulic lift better than a cable lift?

1. Fewer moving parts.
2. No cables that break.
3. No pulleys that wear out.
4. Not bulky and hard to maneuver during installation and removal.
5. The hydraulics do all the lifting during installation and removal when using a flotation device.
6. Our Hydraulic oil is an environmentally friendly lubricant (absolutely not vegetable oil) and it consistently lubricates the entire hydraulic system.
7. Our hydraulic cylinders and hoses are manufactured to withstand the harshest of environments for many years of trouble free operation. Think of it like the hydraulic cylinders on the out drive or outboard motor of your boat or pontoon. How long are they lasting or have you ever replaced them in the last 20 or even 30 years?
