Frequently Asked Questions

 
 
DO YOU HAVE A STORE?

We have a seasonal floating “boatique” that cruises around the Manitowish Waters chain of lakes from Memorial Day to Labor Day (May-Sept).

DO YOU HAVE STORE HOURS?

We can’t resist hitting the  water on a beautiful sunny day! Our hours depend on the unpredictable weather of the Northwoods so if you see us on the water go ahead and  flag us down, dock up beside us or follow our wake to Frank B. Koller Memorial Park in the downtown area. Thinking of a private dock stop for your family gathering/event? Throw us a line and we can make it happen. For location posts you can follow us on:

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

Keep heading North! We are located in the Northwoods of Wisconsin in the charming town of Manitowish Waters. It is located off Highway 51 about 30 minutes North of Minocqua. We are most often docked at Frank B. Koller Memorial park in the downtown area.
 

CAN YOU COME TO MY LAKE?

Let’s keep the dream alive! We learned to captain the boat this year but still need to figure out the trailering portion of this request. We would also need to plan ahead so that we can secure the appropriate permits for your area. We will keep you posted when this dream becomes a reality!
 

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA?

It started with a spark of twinovation, a simple idea of creating a trucker hat for our family gathering Up North.  The Up North logo was born soon after while standing in the kitchen doodling. We had our hat design and a lot of extra hats…there came the idea to sit on a floating dock and sell them while getting a tan and sipping a cocktail. We started to dream bigger and came up with a boutique barge. That transformed into a houseboat pontoon and we found one! An old crawfish cabin was located in Green Bay, WI and delivered onto the Manitowish chain of lakes. A lot of TLC and dreams were incorporated into the pontoon and she launched as the Dock ’N Shop in the summer of 2017.
