On lake Wisconsin if you have a pier for over 28 yrs. in the

Customer Question

On lake Wisconsin if you have a pier for over 28 yrs. in the same location- on a bay – which crosses a neighbor ripar***** *****ne ( Common and unavoidable)- the neighbor does not have pier because I have let him use mine .
N ow has his home on the market and he is pretty much insisting I move my pier so he can advertise that the buyer can have a shore station In the deeper water where my pier is located .
In 1989 the DNR approved my placement and I believe I am grandfathered in. the buyer could still build a pier further inland where there is 3 ft of water. Or put a walking pier in-between my pier and his other neighbor to have a shore station further out in the lake
Does he have a case or am I correct thinking he cannot force me over to further infringe on my other neighbor.
Thank you in advance for your expert opinion

Did you get permission from the neighbor originally to locate your pier or did you just do it and tell him he could use it?
