Default Advice how to get rock delivered by water

Hi, would greatly appreciate any pointers, as to how to deliver 1-2 crates of large rock (like 1' and up) to my dock. No good access by land for something like that. Are there any cargo deliveries by boat services )
Thanks!

Lots of barge companies on the lake that can do that unfortunately most are extremely busy... It would be cheaper to find a barge in your area of the lake. Winnipesaukee Marine Constuction, Diversified and Watermark are just a few I can think of off the top of my head. There are many others!

Where are you? What is your "normal" access? Some companies have a landing craft, just drive the delivery truck on and off.

All depends on how big a crate you create🤭

Offer the state some money and maybe they will let you take some rocks out of the Witches!

Default No comment from the OP.

Unfortunately, the OP has not responded to Shore Thing's question. She would give the OP solid advice from the DES standpoint, which would potentially save the OP problems down the road.

Looks like Shore Things drove the OP into “stealth mode”
