Perhaps the most accurate means of estimating cost in your area is to get in touch with the people suggested, Mssrs Eiley, Alfaro, Graniel, Gurero y Coleman (big thumbs up for Mike) and have them quote you a per foot price based on location. Many of the suggestions have raised valid points, distance from town, depth of water, etc. If you go with PVC/ReBar/Grout pilings be sure to specify pvc caps and any electrical you might want for lighting. You will be required to put a light at the end of your dock for navigational safety. Stainless bolts nuts and other structural hardware is a necessity not a luxury if you want any degree of longevity.

Heidi, at what point did you start thinking that building something that has to stand up to the issues that a dock has to would be cheap?

Never, never indicated I thought it would be "cheap". I indicated I had no idea what a dock cost, or the considerations that went into determining the cost, and asked for help. Many people forwarded very helpful, useful information i.e. cost per foot, cost of their dock, building material considerations, permit law information. They also recommended builders to contact. So,it has been a very helpful blog for us. Thank you for your comment.
