  1. Local surfers were not happy about the poer being built
    They contested that the surf break woud be ruined
    And n order to make everybody happy they put empty ralroad cars outside the pier to make a reef for fishing and also to make surfers happy

  2. I had some information on the design of the Ocean Beach Pier by Greer Ferver. The reason why it slopes like it does. Why the concrete piles are skinny. I may have a drawing of the pier we did for later repairs. Ever wonder why this pier survives while many others don’t? Did I say skinny piles?
    Fishermen asked for a low pier, then the public said, “Too low, we’re gettin’ wet!”
    The rig the Contractor used to build the pier had a name. Anyone remember the name of his rig?
