The Officer in Charge of Construction, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, TRIDENT, OICC, TRIDENT was tasked to provide three fleet moorings on the west side of Indian Island, Puget Sound, Washington. These moorings were part of a total of six moorings to be installed for the Naval Undersea Weapons Engineering Station NUWES, for securing YC and YFN ammunition barges. Because of unusual site characteristics and tight positioning constraints it was imperative that the moorings be implanted in precise locations and that the mooring circles swept by the anchored barges be of minimal dimensions. Implantment of the three moors was accomplished in the following sequence Moor 6 - 29 January Moor 2 - 31 January Moor 1 -3 February. Pull tests on all three moorings were completed on 3 February and the construction activities were terminated on 4 February 1979. Additionally, an old mooring in the area was removed at the request of the Western Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command. The total project was completed within the alotted time and funding.
