How Do You Secure an Inactive Aircraft Carrier During a Hurricane?
We know all too well the catastrophic damage massive storms can cause. What most of us don't know is that inactive warships, if unable to withstand the heavy winds, could break free from the pier and become wrecking ball relics. That's why Truston, with licensing assistance from TechLink, partnered with NAVFAC EXWC to provide a dynamic mooring system proven to withstand 100-year weather events.
