Take a look at your neighbor's docks, and talk to them. Small dock projects that can be combined may speed up the process. Moving a barge to reset a couple of posts uses up a lot of transit time for the contractor. For the same reason, some contractors tend to focus on certain parts of the lake, so knowing where you are could get better answers. I''ve used Winnipesaukee Marine Construction out of West Alton with good results. They are good about getting docks "usable", and I expect others are the same. If your dock is usable, but just doesn't look nice and square, that's different. There is also a question of having a repair permit. If you need one (maybe you don't) it can take awhile to get it past your local conservation commission. DES is pretty quick, but they send everything to the local CC which usually meets only once a month. You might want to call the local CC Chairman and see what s/he has to say, and find out when they meet. Permit is for five years and is renewable.
