LOCAL NOTICES TO MARINERS
Please be advised of the following update to LNtM_6_18
All unauthorised vessels are to keep out of the Marina area for the foreseeable future whilst pontoon recovery work is ongoing. The Marina are disconnecting tethers and buoying off - so the entire area will be dotted with pot buoy markers. There will be floating rope particularly at low water so there is a risk of vessels catching ropes in props if they navigate within the Marina area. Holyhead Port Control will advise visiting vessels to avoid the entire Marina area when they request access to the New harbour.
The Marina Salvage vessel has commenced removal of continuous float walkway units still tethered within the lease area. The Salvage vessel call sign is “Cloudy” and will be working on Vhf Ch. 37 and listening on Vhf Ch. 14.
The method of work involves winching the jointing module from each side, cutting the tether shackles, roping off and dropping the tether to the seabed marked with a pot buoy for retrieval and inspection later.
Grapple and retrieval operations will continue.
