Building a private dock for your boat will make it much more convenient for you to access the water, which, in turn, will allow you to get more use out of your boat without having to plan ahead of time to take it out on the water. However, when building your dock, you may want to consider having a gable roof built as well.
What is a Gable Roof Dock?
A gable roof dock is a dock that has a gable roof built over it. A gable roof is a traditional style of roof often used for residential homes in which two roof planes slope upwards and meet in the center at a ridgeline. Not only does such a roof provide a classic look to your dock, it will help to protect your boat during rainstorms.
The slope of the roof allows rainwater to be distributed away from the boat without collecting above it, thereby preventing the need to have to dump water out of the boat and let it dry before taking it out onto the water. It also protects the boat against any debris that may be blown into it from above.
