Currently have a small 6' x 10' patio near water's edge and
was hoping to find some plans to build a small dock (3' x 16') off this existing patio. The water is rather shallow @ this point, probably no more than 3' deep. I searched internet for plans, but search basically led me to larger dock systems.

I read somewhere that building a dock is similar to building a deck, but I'm concerned about the design of the "legs" and making them sturdy enough. They'll be sitting on a relatively sandy lake bottom in a cove area. Would also like to make it modular - in pieces so that its easy to remove.

Have seen some home-made docks build out of PVC tubing, but would
prefer a wooden frame.
