It is surprising the number of owners who will without hesitation spend hours maintaining their boats however overlook the most vital aspect in its mooring. Since what good is your boat if it’s been washed up on shore after rough weather.
Thankfully it is a requirement of RMS as well as insurance companies that mooring inspections take place every 12 months for any wear and tear. See the below excerpts from RMS, failure to comply also comes with hefty fines all avoidable with routine inspections.
NSW Roads & Maritime – “RMS recommends you engage an experienced mooring contractor & use only quality materials. The Mooring must be serviced as a minimum, once a year, to maintain it in good order & condition. Proof of mooring service must be produced to NSW Roads & Maritime on request.”
NSW Roads & Maritime – “Failure to service your mooring may result in cancellation of your Private Mooring Licence and your liability insurance becoming null and void.”
