  • Patent number: 5279238
    Abstract: A shock absorbing cushioning mat designed to protect the compartment liner of a liquid or oil carrying sea going vessel from tear or puncture by steel from the vessel's structure being forced inward by the external pressure created by grounding or collision of a bulk liquid carrying sea going vessel, while providing a firm yet flexible foundation for the compartment liner to eliminate or greatly reduce the potential for spillage of the cargo. The present invention also addresses the problem of compartment liner fasteners coming apart due to the continued motion of a sea going bulk liquid carrying vessel graveling across a body of water.
