It’s been awhile since we have corresponded, but just this weekend I put my pier in and thought about how easy it is to install!!! I have 5 pier sections and I had the complete pier installed in less than 45 minutes and without getting wet! After installing my pier I called the guy who come and put my boat lift in. After installing my lift one of started asking me about my pier and where I got it. I told them all about it and you. He thought it was really a neat system. Thanks again for your great invention.
