Description
Long boat dock consisting of a fixed dock and a floating dock. A cantilevered ramp joins the fixed and floating parts of the dock. At the entrance to the dock is a shed for boating and fishing gear.

Users comments
A floating dock guarantees that the dock and the boat are at the same height.
The dock belongs to Sweden’s Funktionshindrades Frilufts och Fiskeförening, (Sweden Recreation and Fishing Association for People with Disabilities, SFFF), sverigesfff.se/det-har-ar-sfff/ (only in Swedish) (last checked June 2017)
