Open Waters offer some of the most demanding conditions for placing and implementing a oil containment boom. Since these areas commonly feature tides, currents, high winds and waves, it is always recommended that booms be anchored throughout the full length of the boom. Anchor position and frequency will vary depending on loads, water conditions and oil amounts.
