With reference to previously issued NTM 66/19, mariners are advised that the dive inspection of the CalMac ferry swinging mooring near to Gallanach Slipway, Sound of Kerrera did not take place as planned.

Weather and sea state permitting the dive inspection will now be undertaken by dive contractors Shearwater Ltd from about 1300hrs today.

Operating from a workboat, at all times when divers are in the water Flag ‘A’ will be displayed and the dive team supervisor will monitor VHF channel 16. It is not envisaged this project will impact on scheduled ferry services.

During this time, all vessels navigating within Sound of Kerrera are requested to proceed with caution, keep well clear of the workboat when Flag ‘A’ is displayed and regulate their speed to minimise the effects of wash accordingly.
