1 68/14

Mariners are advised that a dive project to undertake a structural inspection of all berthing areas at Gourock Ferry Terminal will commence on or about Tuesday 21st October 2014.

Dive contractors GSS (Plant) Ltd will be operating from the quayside with a safety boat in attendance. Works are programmed to be completed within approximately one week.

At all times operational working areas will be appropriately marked using Flag A “Diving Operations”. There is no diving programmed for during the hours of darkness.

The dive supervisor will monitor VHF channels 12 and 16 and liaise with the Port Manager and skippers of the Argyll and Kilcreggan Ferries to ensure there is no disruption to scheduled ferry services.

Skippers of these vessels must contact the dive supervisor prior to berthing to ensure sufficient time is allowed for the diver to exit the water which will be confirmed by the lowering of Flag A.

All vessels navigating in the vicinity of Gourock Ferry Terminal are advised to exercise vigilance and pass at minimum safe manoeuvring speed and sufficient distance from the dive safety boat to reduce the risk of damage or injury being caused by the passing vessel’s wash or displacement.
