Dock Tikis in Florida
A dock tiki will be custom-designed to fit in whatever area of the dock you prefer. An expert tiki contractor will work with you to determine your exact needs. A dockside tiki can be permanently installed directly onto the dock in almost any way you like. For example, a square tiki can be placed on the end of the dock or at a corner section of a large dock.
A rectangular dock is ideal for areas where people need to gather to wait for a boat. Tikis can be made for whatever size you desire. It is important to keep in mind that you must be aware of the needs of docking the boat and install the tiki so it does not interfere with this function.
