ONSHORE MOORING LEGS
The onshore mooring legs are attached to the FC causeway and located on the third and fifth intermediate sections
from the beach.
The onshore mooring legs secure the shoreward end of the floating causeway to the beach. The four onshore legs for
a floating 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.
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.
The onshore mooring container is placed on the deck of the first floating causeway raft. Once the raft is beached, the
wire rope assemblies, padeyes and necessary shackles for the first two onshore legs (1) can be assembled and brought
ashore for attachment to bulldozers (2). The remainder of the container contents can be assembled with the container
on the floating causeway or the container may be moved to the beach before the remaining contents are assembled.
