Any suggestions on who to call to discuss repair?
As SAB1 suggests, are these pilings on a crib dock , a repair might not arrive in time to affect your boating, and what is "frog water"?

Every winter, the ice "adjusts" my dock. It's annoying to look at, but I live with what is only "pushed" a little. Should your repair occur late in this year's boating season (or after ), next winter's ice may force a follow-up repair next season, and you'll wonder why you bothered.

Look around, and you may consider yourself lucky!
