Inner Harbour Channel Marks

All vessel Skippers/Owners are advised that work to install two new navigation marks on the West Side of the Inner Harbour Channel will commence on Monday 21st July for a period of 2 weeks. The Port Lateral Marks will be located on the opposite side of the estuary to the new marina in positions: (58°12.57’N, 006°23.45’W) and (58°12.62’N, 006°23.42’W).

Works will involve the placement of concrete blocks on the seabed to mount Red Spars for the new navigation lights. The work will include dive operations and will be conducted from Hebrides Marine Services workboat Siarach II and their 4m tender. The vessel will maintain a watch on VHF CH12 while in operation and the project co-ordinator can be reached on 07880607202.

Vessels are requested to navigate with extreme caution in the vicinity of this operation and not to pass to the West of the workboat or the two new marked positions in the inner harbour.
