Abstract : Tests conducted revealed that the 8.4-ton collapsilbe salvage pontoon purchased under contract NObs 94517 would not be sufficiently reliable to permit its use under certain deep ocean salvage conditions. It is recommended that these pontoons be limited to salvage operations of less than 350 foot depth. (Author)
