Notice to Mariners

Notice to Mariners No.06 of 2018 - Mixed Moorings

15/01/2018

1. MARINERS ARE HEREBY REMINDED of the dangers involved in the use of mixed moorings in the port of Milford Haven.


2. Generally mooring lines of the same size and material should be used for all leads, if this is not possible due to the available equipment, all lines in the same service, i.e. breast lines, spring lines, head lines and stern lines should be of the same size and material.


3. The use of mixed moorings for similar service comprising full length synthetic ropes used in conjunction with wire should be avoided. If a synthetic rope and a wire are used in the same service the wire will carry almost the entire load while the synthetic rope carries practically none.
