Moorings upgraded

mooring buoys with Doris

SYH has a number of moorings out on the Orwell, on both sides of the entrance and some on the Shotley side of the river. Many are in use as permanent moorings but some are always kept free for the use of berth-holders – a lovely spot for afternoon tea or an overnight in the river, or handy for those moments when you head out of the marina entrance and realise something has gone wrong.

This spring we are renewing or refurbishing the whole lot. We lift, check and service the buoys, risers, ground chain and sinker blocks and replace as necessary. It’s yet another task where our mooring barge Doris proves invaluable.
