Mooring rings should be provided in berth faces at all places where small craft (e.g. customs and pilot launches) require to berth.
Rings should be provided to give a mooring facility accessible directly from small craft at all states of the tides and should generally be positioned adjacent to access ladders.
Rings should be recessed into the berth face or otherwise protected with rubbing strips, etc. to prevent them damaging craft.
Recesses should be drained if rings are mounted in horizontal surfaces.
Mooring rings should be made of solid bar at least 25 mm diameter and secured to the berthing structure with bolts of at least 24 mm diameter.
