Oliver "docking station"

Recommended Posts

Finally finished the build of the home base "Oliver Elite II" docking station. As a one person construction crew, it took me a-while, I started back in August, with just a simple 12 x 25 cover, and decided midstream - to add the enclosed portions, with a full bathroom, and a utility room for honey and produce processing, and whatever else needs doing. There are also two locations, fore and aft, for dumping the waste water. I'll run power and water to the structure later - once the temps return to a comfortable level, Jeesh 97 degrees in October - what??

 

Here are a few pcs,

Very nice, which way are the prevailing winds and will they blow rain under the overhang?

Yes, You can dump from either end, When completed, you can run off shore power, and water hook up.

( there is a code approved septic system just behind the non window wall) - I plummed one room for a full bath, the other larger room has a center floor drain.

Usually from the west south west- which is the enclosed area - so more protected. As for the open areas, I'm sure wind driven rain will blow in, but only get to the lower side areas, no big deal there.

Very nice job, but I thought Harley dog would help fetching tools and such, making it at least a 1.5 man crew.

Did you see the PM I sent you a week ago?
