Abstract Results are reported from field tests and operations conducted by the Marine Division of the New York City Fire Department in the fall of 1972. The objective of the operations was to develop tactics for operation of a fire boat in conjunction with a self-propelled oil skimming boat for oil spill cleanup with minimum use of booms. Streams from the fireboats were used to develop currents for propelling oil toward the skimmer, to maneuver oil in conjunction with natural currents, and to concentrate oil for subsequent pickup by the skimmer.
