Abstract:

Because of an indication that the cost per navigational aid was rising rapidly, the Coast Guard conducted an analysis of the utilization of buoy tenders, which are the primary and most costly facility for the servicing of navigational aids. Based upon an analysis of operational factors, the study concluded that a careful redeployment of tenders, coupled with a selected change in the type of location of aids, would permit replacement of some tenders by less costly buoy boats and reassignment of other tenders without replacement.
