Welcome to GL DOCKS


Great Lakes Docks & Decks was founded by Wally and Kris Dombrowski in 1986. After spending 20 years in the service industry, the dream began with the simple idea of selling floating docks. Soon we realized there was a unfilled need on the lake for boat lift service, hence we began specializing in custom boat lift installation up to 35,000#. Need repair or retrofitting of an existing lift? We can take care of it. We still sell floating docks and offer permanent and portable docks as well as seawall boardwalks. Every piece of waterfront property needs a seawall ladder, we've got them in three styles and eight sizes. Want a little more comfort of use? Consider our aluminum seawall stairway. 


Our business is located on Anchor Bay in Algonac, MI. We work on the water from the Grosse Pointes to Lexington, and everything in between. If you live on the water we have everything you need to fully use and enjoy your property. For the last 30 years we have been dedicated to servicing the needs of waterfront homeowners. Ask your friends and neighbors, chances are good that we've worked for them.

SlideMoor Boat Docking Systems

SlideMoor is truly a 24/7 peace of mind boat docking system. The SlideMoor system protects your boat from bumping, banging, waves, and tides. SlideMoor makes docking and boarding a much safer process by tying your boat tight to the system, merely inches from your dock. The maintenance-free SlideMoor system works with two lines on one side only, making it the fastest and easiest docking system on the market; and has worked in severe weather when all other systems have failed! 

Gorilla-Deck logo.png

The durable Gorilla Deck features an interlocking design and an innovative system that creates a water-shedding surface that prevents water from traveling below, keeping the area dry. Available in a variety of colors, it’s the perfect addition to every backyard. Designed to emulate the appearance and feel of traditional wood decks, Gorilla Deck's vinyl surface has a natural wood grain look and an elegant blend of colors. Gorilla Decks never need painting or re-staining because they have the most advanced UV protection under the sun. The ACCU-Shield protective outer layer is engineered to significantly reduce oxidation and the damaging effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. Even in harsh climates, ACCU-Shield protects your deck's color and sheen.

“Please accept our thanks for yet another job well done. Wally, you, Kris and your employees are a pleasure to work with – professional and efficient. The hoists & docks were completed in a timely manner. You and you staff incorporated innovations as needed. Many companies make promises, few deliver. Wishing you the best and we thank you for making our boating, kayaking and paddling season a great success.”

George and Linda Ellis

“…I wanted to thank you for the beautiful job your company and your crew, Dan, Darren & Kyle did on my boat hoist & seawall. They worked on some really cold days; Tried to give them coffee & lunch and (they) didn’t want anything. With redoing my house I wish there were contractors that worked like your guys. Again thank you very very much.”
