Pontoons for catacanoes

Gloucestershire

 

May 2017

Brief

To provide two pontoons with nose cones to enable catacanoes to pull directly up to them for users to safely get in and out of the canoe.

Solution

A specially shaped structure with custom nose cone design to integrate with the catacanoe as per the brief.

Challenges

Due to the specific shape required, the end of the jetties had to be specially shaped to integrate with the catacanoe to enable the users to embark and disembark safely. It also had to be carefully calculated to ensure that they were floating at exactly the same height as the catacanoe so that it was level with no step up or step down.
