    Winters,...
    Yes, on a pylon, piling or separate nearby fixed object. There's no way a good signal can be gotten on a floating dock for any length of time.

    Our dock is floating, however, quite stable.... it doesn't really move... We should be good. I've got a 4x4" pole mounted near a pylon.

    You'll be mounting on the pylon, yes?

    I suppose if a floating dock were on a small lake, no wind or wakes, and nobody walked on it while you were watching, it'd do.

    "quite stable" might not be quite good enough for HD. This begs the question why did your marina go through the added expense of installing floating docks if not to accommodate some movement of the water (maybe to take out during the winter because of ice?)

    You did say others have dishes installed. On the pilings or on the moving dock? Do the they also have HD dishes?
