Abstract : The report contains the results of an engineering inspection performed on the U.S. Coast Guard large navigation buoy 2A in September 1968. The large navigation buoy was placed on station in July 1967 off Sandy Hook, N.J. The buoy has been in continuous service since then except during periods of refueling and equipment additions. This inspection and report was requested by U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters to determine the cause of certain problems associated with the energy conversion system on the buoy. (Author)
