It is very common in northern Michigan or similar climates to have ice pile up several feet high on the shore, and that is what generally causes damage to anything too close to the edge of the lake. In a northern climate, there are only a few situations where you can leave your aluminum boat dock in the water, including:
- Ponds and backwaters where ice flows are not an issue
- If you have used galvanized steel tubing, where it is much less prone to rupturing if the ice freezes around the pole
