A Structural Engineer’s design (sealed plan) is required for all boat related structures. A survey of the property will be required, once the four outer posts have been set, to verify the location of the improvements (i.e. elevations, side set back, length and width of the improvements, etc). A Structural Engineer's letter is required in order to finalize a permit.
