Mark II Oil Boom

The Mark II Oil Boom is the most widely used design today. With its upper and lower tension members it provides greater tensile strength for towing, sweeping, containment and diversion of a spilled product. Like all Mark II boom series, this boom can be deployed from a workboat, barge, boxed or open trailer, or right from the dock. This boom is ideal for use in waters that range from slight chop to choppy.Able to be towed with small boats in lengths up to 1,000 feet. It conforms well to the surface and its overall strength works very well for containing light debris, soft ice, and, of course, spilled product. Specifications
