SAMSA Lockdown News Update for Boat Owners

SAMSA’s latest notice issued on 21 May (Marine Notice No. 27 of 2020) serves to guide all vessel operators on the type of operations that may be permitted under the various COVID-19 risk levels as they become effective.

Of particular interest is Table 2, item 9 which allows boat owners to visit their moored boats (even at Level 5) to ensure that their boat is “safely moored and not sinking alongside”.

See PDF for the full Marine Notice No. 27 of 2020 which outlines SAMSA’s risk-based response to the COVID-19 Pandemic on Small Vessels and Essential Fishing Vessel Permitted Operations.
