Thirteen different protective coating systems were applied to fifteen buoys at the U. S. Naval Station, San Diego. A cathodic protection system was installed on three of the buoys, and three others served as controls. The application of each coating system is described, and a cost analysis for complete overhaul and replacement of each of the test buoys is presented. The test buoys are currently serving the fleet in San Diego Bay and will be periodically inspected and evaluated for protection afforded by coatings and cathodic protection installations.
