Abstract : The concept of a floating marina pier is presented. This pier concept offers the benefits of off-site construction, less critical waterfront site selection, tidal independence, and reduced fendering requirements. Disadvantages include high initial cost, increased inspection requirements during service, and a vulnerability to sinking. Design challenges are seen for the connection between modules, anchoring systems, service distribution, and the shore-pier interface. (Author)
