Complete NTM 73/16

Mariners are advised that weather permitting a dive project will be carried out by contractors Shearwater Marine Services Ltd to inspect the inner harbour quayside and pier at Port Ellen Ferry Terminal, Isle of Islay.

The project is scheduled to be undertaken over two days commencing on Tuesday 08 November 2016.

The dive team will be operating from the quayside with a safety boat in attendance and at all times dive operational working areas will be appropriately marked using Flag A “Diving Operations”. The dive team supervisor will liaise with the harbour manager/supervisor and will monitor VHF channel 16.

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