If the ground is soft enough, I usually put my push pole in the ground between the dock and the boat to prevent the boat from slipping under. I have also carried an extra 16 foot x 1 inch dowel that straps onto the actual push pole during trailering for staking the boat off the dock.

There are so many poorly designed, badly maintained docks in the Keys, you almost have to be prepared to build your own using whatever is existing as a foundation.

Hopefully you are up and running again asap.
