Forth Ports have recently issued a safety alert as follows:

Marine Safety Alert 01- Security of Moorings

Additionally it has come to our attention that some insurers are becoming increasingly concerned about swinging moorings in the Forth. It is vitally important that we minimise the risk of mooring failures. Please therefore visually check your critical shackles where possible on a regular basis and do not take any chances with using unchecked moorings.

The Moorings Rep has been asked to review the DBSC moorings guidance and is both happy to receive thoughts and also for some knowledgeable volunteers to comment on draft revisions.
