Further to NTM 14/21, mariners are advised that CMAL will be conducting asset condition surveys of the facilities at the locations listed below that are operated primarily in support of lifeline ferries.
The surveys will be conducted by engineers operating from a small workboat. Unless otherwise indicated works should be completed within one day and will not disrupt scheduled ferry services.
Weather permitting, the surveys are scheduled to be undertaken on or about the indicated dates.
01 & 02/06/21 Isle of Skye, Armadale Bay, Armadale Ferry Terminal
03 or 04/06/21 Sound of Kerrera, Kerrera Ferry Slipway and Breakwater
03 or 04/06/21 Sound of Mull, Loch Aline, Lochaline Ferry Terminal
03 or 04/06/21 Sound of Iona, Bullhole Berthing Structure
The workboat will maintain VHF communication on channel 16 and liaise with ferry masters and the local port manager.
Mariners navigating near to the abovenamed locations on the indicated dates are requested to do so with caution, regulate their speed to minimise the effects of wash and stay well clear of the workboat.
Further NTMs will be issued as the work progresses and details can be obtained using the contact details below.
