Default Sinking poles

Does anyone know someone who sinks poles for docks around the Lillian area? My dad bought a boat lift off of a forum member a few months ago(can't remember who) and now needs some poles sunk to mount the lift on. The only guy that has even offered to do it wanted something like $700 to sink 4 poles.

He is located on the AL side of the bay in Lillian. It's hard to even get anyone over there.

PLEASE HELP. I'm tired of trailering the boat!!!!:hotsun

have a well close by? what we did after ivan was take a 8' section of 1.5" sch40 pvc and put a T at one end. then bought the insert so you could screw a water hose into each side. then ran a few hoses from the well pump to where we wanted to sink the pilings (about 50 of them) and went to work. took us a week to rebuild the whole dock (150') and boat house.

I've got buddies that had it done in the lagoon. I think it was purty pricy, and you gotta have a permit I believe.

We have a pump and rebuilt my dad's and granddad's docks. The short one's are easy, it's those 20 or so footers that pose a challenge. Just thought if someone in that area had a rig it would be easier to pay. Save us a heart attack and a few hernias ya know.

We'll probably end up doing it ourselves this spring.
