It is a requirement of MAST that moorings must be lifted and inspected at least once every two years.

Moorings largely fail due to the lack of regular maintenance by the owner

Most mooring breakages are a cause of neglect in the way the vessel is attached to the mooring. In many cases the rope is exposed over a sharp roller or can come into contact with a sharp anchor and gradually cut away at the rope causing breakage. 

The mooring rope may also be chafing under the mooring buoy and thus regular checks of this should be carried out to ensure the integrity of the mooring is not breached.


MAST Tasmania.

Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) require all mooring permit holders to

  1. Have the mooring lifted out of the water and inspected at least once in every two years
  2. Retain maintenance records for the mooring. MAST may request proof the mooring has been maintained at any time
  3. Mooring permit holders must ensure that the mooring device is capable for its intended use
  4. Regular checks of the mooring head rope must be made to ensure it is protected from chafe.

Andrew Climie
I have had yachts on moorings for decades, and more recently Bob Kelly has been servicing my mooring in Hobart. I have been very happy with his work, he is obviously competent and knowledgeable and is careful and very thorough. He has an excellent, purpose built barge, able to lift my deep, very heavy mooring without difficulty. Bob has been very good to deal with, reliable, and frank with his advice and happy to take me out on his barge to see the condition of the mooring and the work done for myself. Others I know have described similar positive experiences.

It's very satisfying to watch someone competent, with the right kit, do a job properly. So I spent a very pleasant afternoon watching Bob and his partner upgrade my mooring tackle to suit my boat and Tasmanian conditions.

Three weeks later the wind in Kettering was over 35 knots with 70 knot gusts in the Channel. I slept easily knowing the boat would still be there in the morning - couldn't want better.
