Mariners are advised that dive contractors GSS (Plant) Ltd will be carrying out a dive project west of Sgeir nan Ron, Port Ellen, Isle of Islay at the above indicated position to search for a detached mooring arrangement from the isolated danger buoy that is currently off station.

The dive will be undertaken from a support boat equipped with VHF radio and the dive team supervisor will liaise with the CalMac Harbour Manager/Supervisor to ensure disruption to the scheduled ferry service is avoided. The dive project is expected to be completed within one day.

During this time all vessels navigating in the vicinity of this position are requested to do so with caution, remain well clear of the dive support vessel and regulate their speed to minimise the effects of wash accordingly.
