Do you know what this is?

Out in Seattle visiting my wife's family. Saw this tied to a marina dock, is it some kind of fender for big boats, or something else?

Re: Do you know what this is?

I cant tell from the pic, but it looks like an oil containment boom or one of those "surrounding booms" used around big boats to keep debris away.

Re: Do you know what this is?

i would bet on boom of some sort.
some marinas have emergency preparedness plans inclusive of oil spillage and such with boooms ready to deploy to prevent further mess and loss. effective for boats with spills or in need of containment of whatever
