The Battleship Mooring Quays were constructed in pairs. Mounted above water on approximately 35 embedded concrete legs, each quay was constructed on poured concrete. Both large and small mooring cleats were mounted on the top edge of each quay to secure ship mooring lines. Each quay was painted white for high visibility. The mooring quays are significant for their association with the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor and they played a significant role in salvage work after the attack.
