ONSHORE MOORING LEGS
The onshore mooring legs are attached to the causeway segment and located on the third and fifth intermediate
sections from the beach.
The onshore mooring legs secure the shoreward end of the causeway to the beach. The four onshore legs for the
causeway are stowed and transported in a 20 ft full access ISO container. The onshore mooring leg is designed to
perform in soft soils, sand and competent rock.
The onshore mooring container is placed on the deck of the first beach end causeway section. Once the CF is
beached, the wire rope assemblies, padeyes and necessary shackles for the first two onshore legs can be assembled
and brought ashore for attachment to bulldozers. The remainder of the container contents can be assembled with the
container on the FC or the container may be moved to the beach before the remaining contents are assembled. An
onshore mooring leg contains the following items:
Four 120 lb NAVMOOR anchors.
One or more 1 in. wire rope assembly that is 300 ft long.
One horizontal padeye.
One 1 3/8 in. bolt type anchor shackle.
Two carpenter stop assemblies.
One snatch block.
One hoist hook cable.
One master link.
Five 1 in. shackles.
One flounder plate.
Two anchor bridles.
Four 7/8 in. shackles.
