Make docks not bashable by hand.

I think docks should be not bashable by hand because you use a lot of resources to build it and then anyone with a vandalism character can just come and destroy it easily. It would be different if we were able to pallisade around the dock but since we are not able to do that i think docks should only be bashable with the use of a catapult or ram.
Anyways, feel free to discuss about it and give other alternatives if you think my idea is bad.

Then you could use docks as an extension of your real walls.
And I dont think that it would be a good idea, they are not meant to be walls after all.

How much soak does a Dock currently have?

superior docks with more soak would be nice, but the problem is that soak is nigh meaningless right now with all the strong as hell characters in the world.

you could make docks like leantos. where bashing always leaves a scent claim or no claim. unless thats already the case?
Newbie and noob do not mean the same thing.

Neither do figuratively and literally.

I do not think that the issue is that it would not leave a scent. But the fact that somebody can just bash your dock for fun when he passes by.

That's why I proposed sledgehammer. Barely anyone wields it. Well, unless, someone target You and want to mess with You but that is kind of different story.

If you don't want it to act as an extension of walls, just make it impossible to build a 2nd dock in a certain radius (30-50tiles idk?), but make it not hand-bashable.

Sledgehammer thing does not fit in the soak system, if you str is high enough you should be able to break it sledge or not.
The dock is an important structure and it would be nice to be able to protect it somehow.

Just don't allow for them to be built within 7-ish tiles of other docks
