this past year i wanted to add a easy ,cheap dock to my pirate yard haunt. so i gathered up 4 pallets,layed them end to end. i then cut six 4' post out of some scrap 4+4's. i notched the bottoms so they would fit snug against the side of the pallets. i screwed 3 post per side.added some eye bolts and threaded it with some thick rope i got a hardware store.i still wanted it to look swampy so i draped some camo netting over the sides . the netting came from a army cousin! for free! paid for 6 eyebolts,and rope.the rope was around $18. took me no time to throw this together. i guess i could have mounted it up off the ground,but it looked good as is.heres some day pics and a night pic. the thing is that you can make it as long as you want and any shape!
