Notices to Mariners Week 42

UKHO Permanent/Preliminary/Temporary

1. ENGLAND – East Coast – Depths. – One reduction of depth at the Long Sand Head. At over 8m, not likely to hinder leisure craft but the significance is the increasing tendency for the Long Sand Head to extend towards the north-east.
2. ENGLAND – East Coast – Depth. Wreck. – Removal of a wreck in Lake Lothing – substituting a depth of 1.9. I regret I cannot illustrate that position but the wreck was on the north bank of the Lake, outside of the dredged channel (obviously) well east of the marinas.
3. ENGLAND – East Coast – Depths. – One reduction of depth in the Deep Water channel of the Black Deep close to the Black Deep No 2 (PHB). A series of reductions in the DW channel had been reported in week 25 vide NtM 3001 and this reduction reported now is a further reduction. Not likely to hinder leisure craft – and not where we ought to be!


Port of Wells – Dredging

And that is that. Nice short week.
