What Will You See at Our Booths?

Captain Rod’s and Seawalls Unlimited will be at the Northern Illinois Boat Show!

Captain Rod’s specializes in pier and dock services. That’s everything from boat lifts to pier and dock accessories. We only use the most trusted names! If you’re in need of a dock or pier, or think it might need sprucing up before spring, stop by our booth.

Seawalls Unlimited will be showcasing our sturdy and durable retaining walls. In addition to preventing floods, seawalls stop erosion and other harmful elements from damaging your property.

We install three types of seawalls: steel, outcropping, and rip rap. Each one defends against tough conditions that could cause harm to your shoreline. Enjoying boating season means not having to worry about your shoreline being damaged.

At Captain Rod’s and the Seawalls Unlimited booth, we’ll be more than happy to answer any of your questions about piers or retaining walls. So, stop in and say hello!
