I know what these are. I saw them ready for shipment from Puget Sound
Naval Shipyard about 3 weeks ago. Wonder where they are going so
slowly?
They are mooring bouys. The large cylinder is the floating part, and
the small section attaches to a chain, and allows ships to moor in the
harbor, away from a pier.
Definately not nuclear casks, those are shipped on depressed flats with
an upright stainless steel cylinder with multiple stay wires locking it
into place.
