Mooring inspections

All moorings must be maintained in a safe and efficient condition, as a guide here are three easy steps to help.

Step 1: Reminder inspection is due

  • You will be reminded six months before your mooring is due for its two or three yearly mooring inspection.
  • This allows enough time to book with a mooring service provider so that it is inspected before the due date.

Step 2: Book your inspection in plenty of time

  • See the list of mooring service providers and make sure you book your inspection when requested, to minimise delays.
  • Mooring contractors have a lot of moorings to inspect. They also have to work around weather and tidal conditions.

Step 3: Complete the inspection

  • When inspected, if the condition of the mooring is acceptable, a mooring inspection certificate will be issued (much like a vehicle warrant of fitness).

Did you know?

The most common cause of mooring failure is lack of maintenance. Please check your mooring regularly.
