system applied to all exterior surfaces, the pontoon deck surface shall be
coated with No, 36076, dark gray, nonskid finish coating conforming to
MIL-D-23003, type II. Coating shall be uniformly applied at the rate of
1 gallon per 60
square feet of surface, using airspray or a smooth, hard
phenolic core roller. Finished deck coating shall have a profile where the
aggregate prominently protrudes above the binder surface. Threaded surfaces
and gages shall not be painted. All painted areas shall be touched up where
paint is removed as a result of handling or assembly at the manufacturing
plant. The pontoon deck surface requiring deck coating is defined as the top
of the pontoon as seen in NAVFAC Drawing No. 77-26-1F when viewing the pontoon
from the end having the manhole, the pipe plugs being to the left of the
3.9 Identification marking. (See 3.9 of MIL-P-19380J.) In addition, all
pontoons shall be marked with a one-pass single weld bead, 3/16-inch wide
minimum, 1-inch high digit/letter identification consisting of two digits, a
dash, and one letter. The two digits shall denote the year, followed by a
letter assigned to identify the manufacturer, e.g., 80-A. This information is
to be applied to the 7-foot long side containing the manhole, with the top of
the numbers 3 inches from the top of the pontoon and centered.
