This illustrated report describes details of the fabrication, assembly, and operation of a lightweight, easily assembled system for dispensing chemical dispersants on oil spills. This system is designed to be fitted onto the aft deck of the U.S. Coast Guard 32-foot waterways patrol boat (WPB), a vessel stationed in many areas where oils are commonly transferred or transported. This report is intended to provide those detailed instructions necessary to the man actually doing the fabrication, assembly, or operation. Sixteen illustrations and parts lists are also provided.
