Would you, dear reader, happen to know of a sensible method of securing dock posts (in fresh water) to a lake's bottom? Think of a six pitch roof; this is the slope (underwater), upon which the posts/poles must rest. I have been told the "concrete-filled 5 gallon bucket with post" approach as well as having seen the disasterous insult to the concept of "plumb" of the "just pound the posts/pipe/poles into the lakebottom" way. I would prefer not to get into the hydraulic cement ballgame... Any ideas??? I only need to sink and secure two or four posts -- the above water, wooden portion I can build just perfectly. Oh, and another thing... I want to keep this reasonably cheap. Thanks for your time...
