ACBO intends to buy the materials for laying 6 fore and aft moorings in the creek. The cost is going to be £580 per fore and aft mooring.
ACBO will contribute to this cost £150 thus reducing the cost to £430. This includes the sinker attached to 1.5m chain that attaches to rope up to the surface that attaches to the mooring buoy, It also includes the cost of burying the sinker. The strops that attach the boat to the buoy are NOT included in this.
If you are interested in paying for one of these newly laid moorings, please let us know. Once the mooring is in use by you, the sole responsibility for maintenance will be down to you. This is the case even though ACBO has supplied the materials and commissioned the laying of the mooring.
The reason for this decision is that many moorings are falling into disrepair, and some have disappeared completely. This may seem like a big outlay, but for 10 years peace of mind, and a secure mooring, it works out at £43 per year.
