The outside stringers are fastened to the pile caps with
bolts. The deck planks are fastened to the stringers with
3/8-by 8-inch spikes. After the deck is laid, 12-foot
lengths of 8 by 10 are laid over the outside stringers to
form the curbing. The lengths of curbing are distributed
as shown in the general plan. The curbing is bolted to
the outside stringers.
The pier is equipped with a fender system to protect
it against shock, caused by contact with vessels coming
in the part plan, are driven along both sides of the pier
and bolted to the outside stringers. The heads of these
bolts are countersunk below the surfaces of the piles.
An 8- by 10-fender wale is bolted to the backs of the
fender piles. Lengths of 8- by 10-fender-pile chocks are
cut to fit between the piles and bolted to the outside
stringers and the fender wales. The spacing for these
bolts is shown in the part plan. As shown in the general
plan, the fender system also includes two 14-pile
dolphins, located 15 feet beyond the end of the pier. A
or docked alongside of it. Fender piles, spaced as shown
dolphin (fig. 8-4 1) is an isolated cluster of piles,
