Dock Project Feedback and Testimonials

Eden Siobhan, McKellar

I recently worked with On the Water Designs to create our family's dock, inspired by the design of the Canadian flag. We could not be happier with the finished product, the dedicated professionalism of the staff and their excellent adherence to our promised timeline. We also feel that our investment, to meet their price, was perfectly aligned.

Working with Michelle Jewitt was such a positive experience. She navigated our dream dock from a wish, to accomplishment, with astonishing accuracy. This was realized by her design inspired only by our picture from a magazine. The artisans at On the Water Designs employed woodworking skills of the highest level to create this masterpiece. The final product was true to our vision and was more than we could have hoped for.

Thank you to everyone at On the Water Designs, for your dedication and accomplishment of this project for our family.

We love our new dock!

With the custom ramp, it fits the shore wall perfectly.

Best dock on our side of Simcoe.

Rock solid. No sway.

Bring on the storms.

Thank you again for your great customer service.

Outstanding job.

Good afternoon,

Just wanted to share our before and after photos with our new dock!

We are so very happy with the dock system! The ease ofinstallation, and quality of construction are amazing. We especially like the ThruFlow decking, not only is it maintenance free, but the geese and ducks do not seem to like "resting" on it, so, no messes to clean up every morning! We are already planning an expansion of the dock, and the addition of some accessories, we will be in touch!

Thank you for your help in guiding us to this dock, the designer series is well worth the price.

Just took the dock out for the season last weekend. We had a great (albeitâ€Â¦ short) season with it. Appreciated how well it went together and it only took 20 minutes to get it out and stored up by the cottage.

 As a product designer, I appreciate well designed, engineered and fabricated ideas.

 Great product!

I wanted to take a few moments to give you a bit of feedback about the new Designer Series Pole dock your team built and installed for us last spring. 
I am more than happy to report that the new dock came through our very wet and icy Muskoka winter absolutely unscathed. After years of shimming, adjusting and repairing our old crib dock, moving ahead with an On The Water Design's dock is a decision that I wish I had made years ago.

A beautiful, and durable, low maintenance dock.
My regards to you and your Team

Hi Brandon,

We met briefly at the Ottawa Cottage and Backyard show and I showed you a picture of my preliminary installation of a 7 step water entry staircase. You gave me your card and asked if I would end you the picture. I installed the staircase last weekend and I have taken a couple of pictures foryour review and use. I purchased this staircase in 2015 from Jeb4Corners after seeing it at the 2015 Ottawacottage and Backyard show. We used the stairs all oflast summer and it was a great success for those with mobility issues for getting in and out of the water. I designed the support and ramp to make removal in the fall an easy chore.

Over the last 10 years I have had the pleasure of purchasing a Boat Lift, Pole Dock and Tower Dock from On the Water Designs for my Cottage in Temagami. I have found Dave MacDonald and his staff very knowledgeable and helpful. The quality and price of their systems is excellent and they always stand behind their product. I have recommended this business to my personal friends and would suggest anyone looking for a premium product at a reasonable price drop in and talk to them.
