SHARK RIVER HILLS - After months of work to fix the docks in Shark River Hills municipal marina, work on 155 slips is nearly complete and boats are back in the water.

Crews made major changes to the docks after they were ravaged by Superstorm Sandy in late October. Unlike the fixed docks built into the ground, the new floating docks are attached to 35-foot pilings, ensuring that they will not be battered or broken in the next storm.

The pilings will stand 12-feet above high tide.

Boaters say that not as many people have been able to get their boats back in the water this summer, since so many docks were destroyed in the storm.
