Mooring maintenance report:
I am pleased to report that mooring last serviced at English Bay on 2 March 2022. Inspection and service were carried out in accordance with the Northland Regional Council (NRC) mooring standards.
 NRC records show the mooring is licensed to hold vessels up to 8 metres which puts the mooring into the 2-ton block category mooring has been serviced to this standard.
(Moorings with a licensed length up to 7 metres are in the 1-ton block category, 7-12 metres are in the 2-ton category, and 12-18 metres are in the 4-ton category).
 This mooring has a 2-ton block. The block passed inspection as the pin measured 29.9mm, being above the NRC minimum threshold of 25mm.
 The m ground chain measured 36.7-39.2mm and passed inspection, the NRC minimum threshold being 25mm for a 2-ton system.
 Of the existing 3m x 20mm intermediate chain, 2m measured 17.4-18.4mm and passed inspection, the remaining 1m measured 16.0-16.3mm and failed inspection and so with the minimum NRC threshold for this chain being 17mm. We replaced the failed section with 1m x 20mm regular link chain.
 The swivel’s collar and pin showed wear beyond the NRC’s threshold and it was replaced.
 All new connecting shackles were double-welded closed for added mooring security.
 The 4.5m x 24mm strop and the antichafe hose passed inspection as did the foam filled buoy and buoy line.
