Summary "This book provides new, state-of-the-art guidelines for the planning, design, and development of small craft harbors. Much has changed in marina development and operation since the previous edition, and new challenges confront those charged with providing access to oceans, lakes, and rivers by recreational and commercial users. Construction and maintenance of marinas and waterfront facilities have not kept pace with demand. Products are available now that are more predictable and cost-effective. And, increasingly, available waterfront sites are often blighted or contaminated. This manual will assist those involved with waterfront development to produce facilities that are convenient, attractive, and safe, as well as meeting aesthetic, social, and cultural goals. Topics include planning, environmental, and financial considerations; harbor entrance, breakwater, and basin design; inner harbor structures; and land-based support facilities. Civil engineers, architects, planners, marine contractors, real estate developers, and marina owners, both public and private, will refer frequently to the guidelines presented in this manual."--Knovel description.
