This report contains results of the inspection of 34 fleet moorings operated an maintained by the Commander Fleet Activities, Sasebo, Japan. A CHESNAVFACENGCOM-assigned Engineer-in-Charge and divers from Underwater Construction Team Two conducted the inspection from 10-20 May 1983. Of the 34 mooring inspected, 31 were found to be satisfactory for continued use at their rated class. One required downgrading to a lower mooring classification, and two were found to be in poor condition and recommended for overhaul at the earliest practical time. Additionally, a thorough design review to determine the adequacy of these Japanese built moorings to withstand the forces associated with the mooring classes, as defined in NAVFACENGCOMs DM-26, is recommended. Specific comments concerning each of these moorings and recommendations for future actions are included in this report. Keywords Mooring inspection, Underwater Inspection, Fleet moorings.
