Abstract:

After one year of in situ test and evaluation, a prototype fiberglass reinforced plastic landing float and brow have performed satisfactorily. The float and brow of a unique glass-wrapped foam plank construction is located at the Fleet Landing, Naval Station, San Diego, California. Damage to the installation has been confined to the fendering system and can be considered normal wear for the 160,000 dockings. Author
