This is a four point Mediterranean Mooring type system consisting of two stern legs attached to a pier and two bow mooring buoys. The mooring is normally utilized by a Submarine Tender AS class ship. The inspection of the mooring was conducted during the period 18-25 September 1981. In general, the mooring was found to be in satisfactory condition. However, its cathodic protection and sinker systems were in poor condition and need to be replaced. The mooring design should be reviewed for possible improvements and redesign of the cathodic protection and sinker systems. After completion of this design review, the mooring should be overhauled, the Di-Lok chain replaced wtih stud link, and the design changes incorporated.
