A: 3/4" Socket
A: I don’t have just a little muck at my lake but I the basses worked great for me
A: Not sure yet how far they settle, I put mine in a bottom that is several inchs of muck last August and I expected them to sink in somewhat. Over this winter I see that they did that but not too much. When the weather allows, I'll get in the water to better understand. If I had it to do over I would have drilled through the pipe for a more positive anchor with the set screw. Not certain this is necessary but a potential concern.
A: The 8" dock pipe base is not intended for use in a muck application.
A: From my experience they will sink in muck quite a bit causing leveling problems on your dock. If you place a large concrete paver down first they work but the easiest solution is to buy the 14” x 14” muck base. They will sink a little but they work great.
A: No, you should buy the larger square bases. I have used Tommy Docks for years. The 8 in. will be pushed into muck and mud bottoms. The distance depends on how soft the bottom is and the weight on the pier.
