Leisure Series Pole Docks
The new Leisure Series Pole Dock is the most innovative leg dock in production today. It’s precision made and light weight design bolts together instead of being welded. This type of construction technique makes it a great package for a summer Do-It-Yourself project. Made from 6061-T6 marine grade aluminum, its classic truss style frame design ensures an excellent strength to weight ratio. Only non-corrosive aluminum and stainless steel fasteners are in the docks assembly.
The Leisure Series system was developed with the aid of the latest 3D CAD modelling software to ensure each part is an exact fit. Our proprietary in-house tooling guarantees consistent production of this design and ensures every hole is in exactly the right place. Each dock is Canadian made at our factory in Muskoka.
Frames are available in 5′ x 10′ sections, approximately weighing 75lb/34kg. The dock frames come with all the connection points pre-punched, enabling almost any type of dock configuration. The easily packaged design allows for easy shipping to anywhere and assembles with ease.
Leg holders feature a unique hand operated leg adjustment knob eliminating the need for tools during in water installation. The dock has deck support sleepers every 16″, supporting almost any type of decking you choose to use.
Dock frame kits are available as frame only or with multiple decking options including Western Red Cedar, ThruFlow Plastic Decking, or Solid PVC Decking. Our exclusive deck panel clips clamp decking securely to the frame.
Each Dock incorporates a special extruded side frame enabling our EZ-Glide bumper strip to slide into place (no nailing or screwing). Aluminum legs, telescopic leg braces, leg holders and feet complete your dock.
Our Designer Series Pole Docks, the cornerstone of On the Water Designs, are hand crafted by experienced welders using the highest quality Canadian materials at our factory in Muskoka. Each section utilizes marine-grade aluminum framing and stainless steel fasteners to ensure a completely rust free design. Decking choices include Western Red Cedar, Solid PVC or Aluminum. A Designer Series Pole Dock from On the Water Designs makes a very durable and elegant centerpiece to any waterfront.
Designer Series Pole Docks come in a wide variety of standard sizes including 4′, 6′, 8′ & 10′ wide and 10′, 15′ & 20′ long. Custom sizes and designs allow for additional flexibility where needed. All frames include decking support stringers every 16″ allowing for almost any choice of decking both now and in the future. Our exclusive deck panel clips clamp decking securely to the frame.
Tired of carrying your wood dock in and out of the water each season? Our aluminum dock systems are up to 75% lighter than your current design. Our modular deck panels allow each section to be removed individually. Most of our dock frames can be lifted by just 2 people or may be wheeled or floated with optional accessories.
Classic Series Floating Docks
Wooden docks have been built for centuries and survives today in our Classic Series Wooden Dock. Traditional construction techniques matched with extruded aluminum structural hardware creates a system that will blend with the beauty of your shoreline for years to come. Our Micro Pro Sienna Treated Docks are hand crafted by experienced carpenters using quality Canadian materials at our factory in Muskoka. Every Classic Series Wood Dock utilizes very reliable foam filled plastic PermaFloat dock floats. Our full range of float sizes allow us to choose the right float to fit your design.
High Performance Box Floats
Box floats are the industry standard for dock floatation. They are more durable & longer lasting than blue foam floatation, and more stable than pontoon style floats due to the flat bottom design keeping more material in contact with the water and creating more stable displacement. Add in the flexibility to build with over 50 standard float sizes and you have the most suitable flotation for almost any conditions.
Classic Series Floating Docks come with a 3 Year warranty and are expected to last 10-15 years under typical conditions. The Box floats are warranted for 15 years

Tower Docks are the ultimate in pole dock designs. Suitable for many of the same conditions as a Pole Dock, a Tower Dock has the added benefit of lifting out of the water like a drawbridge at the end of the season. No more getting wet with the annual install and pull out! The tower component is built right into the frame so there are no heavy components to store away, and the tower folds underneath the decking in the summer leaving your dock clean and ready for use.
Every Designer Series Tower Dock is hand crafted by experienced welders using the highest quality Canadian materials at our factory in Muskoka. Each system features a welded marine grade aluminum frame and stainless steel fasteners to ensure your system will last a lifetime without rusting. The dock has deck support sleepers every 16″, supporting almost any type of decking you choose to use. Docks are available as frame only or with Western Red Cedar, Solid PVC or Aluminum Decking. Our exclusive deck panel clips clamp decking securely to the frame.
Winterizing your Tower Dock
Tower Docks are perfect for situations where winterizing is done by one person. Deck panels are removed, cables attach and the dock is winched up and out of the water. Winter Cables are attached for additional safety from high winds.
Tower Dock Installations are somewhat custom based on your shoreline. A site inspection is usually performed during the quote stage to ensure you get everything you need to make your new Tower Dock last a lifetime.
Most clients choose to have their Tower Dock installed professionally the first time to ensure it is done properly and can winterize it from there on their own.
Boat/Pwc Lifts Information
Vertical series boat lifts are constructed of special T-6 6061 aluminum extrusions and load tested from 130% to 200% its rated capacity. Much of the hoists construction utilizes bolts rather than welds to allow for easy transportation and on site assembly. This offers a big advantage over other manufacturers who require their 11′ wide lifts to be carried from the driveway down to the water fully built or floated in from a local boat launch. The hoists high vertical lift design keeps your boat far out of waves reach. Informed consumers prefer the vertical type design due to the increased lift capacity and safer frame design.
Our Popular PWC Lifts are made from the same materials as our larger lifts and come in both a vertical design as well as two more economical cantilever designs.
1. All hoists have fully adjustable legs with pivoting base pads for level installation.
2. Stainless cables and corrosion resistant fasteners.
3. Durable nylon pulleys with bronze bushings.
4. Unlike other hoists our patented chain and gear driven winch system is made for boat hoists, it is not a simple boat trailer winch. They are sized and geared accordingly to the lifts weight capacity and still easy to turn on all hoist sizes. The winch wheel is larger than most, a full 48″ in diameter allowing for easy use. Unlike other lower cost winch systems, ours incorporates a winch cable guide to evenly distribute cable across the drum which prevents cable climbing and bunching.
5. All hoists have standard adjustable bunks that will accept in-board ski boats.
6. Optional full length guide on bunks, and motor stop.
Optional solar powered 12v winch unit is available and comes with a solar panel and mounting bracket.
Optional roof systems are available in the color multiple colors.

Just Ask About the Warranty
At On the Water Designs, we warranty our dock frames for a full 10 Years. Our warranty is NOT prorated meaning you aren’t responsible for 10% of the cost in year 1, 20% in year 2 etc. like some of our competitors. With On the Water Designs, you have the same great coverage at year 10 as you did the day you bought the dock. We are able to offer the best warranty in the business because most of our clients never need to use it. To us, that is the mark of a great quality dock system.
