Great graphics Stubbie!

The caption at the top is important: "local codes may vary". Around here, the Corps of Engineers requires the entire run to the dock subpanel to be GFCI protected because it will cross public (Corps) property.

Yes... this is very true about codes differing. I had planned to put all those possibilities in the drawing with side notes but I wasn't able to figure out how to keep the file size small enough to attach the drawing. Limited to 97.7 kb on this site. I'm still working on some of the ways to get more info on the drawing but as you can see it is getting rather busy. But is a good reference for general thoughts for someone with a project that has to do with floating private docks. All shore power outlets have to be gfci and that needs to be in the drawing so as you can see it is a work in the making.....

BTW.... Thanks for the input I changed the drawing to reflect a gfci feeder

Thanks for all the useful info. Yes, it will definately be copper, and the sub-panel will be mounted on a post about 10 feet from the shore.

As far as, ' If I have my own pier, i am not worried about the money'.

If when I bought the house, 8 years ago, it had had a pier and boat lift, and I didn't have to remove 4 commercial dumpster of yard waste, and I hadn,t had to completely remodel, rebuild the house, then yes I would not be worried about money.

However, it was a fixer upper and I am just now getting to the pier.

Thanks again for the input, and BTW, the view is fantastic.
