The aim of this publication is to describe the use of timber for marine and fresh water constructional purposes. It indicates how timber can provide a solution to many of the problems confronting dock, harbour and river board engineers and others, concerned with water construction. With a knowledge of the hazards to which timber may be exposed, and careful selection of the species with the most appropriate properties for the job, a satisfactory and long lasting structure can be obtained at relatively low cost. The principle functions of marine and fresh water structures where timber is utilized and which are described here are:- (a) The prevention of erosion of the sea coast and of river and canal banks. (b) The construction of wharfs, jetties, docks and dock gates, and the protection of such structures by fendering and rubbing pieces. (c) The construction of marinas and yacht havens.
