Mooring Installation and Maintenance
Regulations regarding the installation and use of moorings in Tasmania are set and administered by Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST). Their web site states:
The days when it was possible to pick a secluded spot, drop a train wheel on the bottom and moor your boat to it have passed. There is now such a demand for a share of sheltered waters statewide, for all kinds of aquatic activity, that moorings have had to be strictly regulated.
Before applying for a new mooring it is important to understand your obligations. A fact sheet and is available on the MAST website.
It is a requirement of MAST that moorings must be lifted and inspected at least once every two years. The permit holder must ensure the mooring is kept in good condition. MAST recommends inspection by a commercially qualified mooring contractor.
That’s where we come in! We can install a new mooring to suit your vessel and ensure that it is maintained on a regular basis.
In addition to installation and ongoing maintenance of moorings, our purpose-built vessel is ideally suited to undertake:
- Fish farm work
- Wharf maintenance
- Marine survey work
