    Jamestown Ferry, James River, VA

    Scotland Ferry have used large wood pile clusters for guiding the ferries into the terminals; and every year, they have to replace damaged and rotting piles. The monopolies bend, but don’t break during ferry impact. The increased structural capacity and the corrosion resistance greatly reduce maintenance costs.
