Its a residential dock with a boatlift. Good point about the aluminum, I've seen it pitt at the thread connections just from exposure to rain and thought salt water might eat away at it faster. I cant find anything in the book about residential docks,do they cover that or is it just considered a corrosive enviornment

Penetrox on the threads will often help to keep pitting from occuring.

If you are talking about the NEC, section 555, but it does not apply to residential docks.

If you are talking about a NY code, then I can't help.

True and the question about resi vs marinas & boatyards (where 555 is king) could make a difference.

The SOOW would probably be less expensive than 2000V Type W and have a smaller bending radius.

But, the NYC ban on PVC still sticks in my mind. Do they just not care for elastomers? Would they even consider mining cable?

I've used Robroy in clorine plants where it gets hosed down all the time. When properly done, painting exposed metal, it was the method of choice, if flexibility was not an issue.

Once again NYC is special.

Even though the term "dock" is commonly used for "pier" a dock is the water near a pier that the boat rest. I know I will loose this one in the court of public opinion but it still bugs me.

No, they are just ruled by rediculous union rules.
