I hope the following clarifies the costs that will be incurred for those moving to Longue Hougue on a permanent basis. I have received the following clarification from Capt. Barton this morning (04/02/02) followed up by a phone call over a couple of points.
The charging arrangements for St Sampson's berth holders transferring permanently to Longue Hougue are exactly as published in the Policy letter approved by the States in July 2000.
1) The mooring holders will not pay fees for the first year.
2) The berth holders will continue to be responsible for providing their own chain risers, mooring ropes and buoys.
3) The Harbour Authority will provide and lay the heavy ground tackle in the form of deadmen, cruiser chain etc.
I phoned Capt. Barton as I was unsure of the meaning of cruiser chain, and where it began and ended. From our conversation I have drawn the following plan which I believe lays out the responsibility of the areas of cost.( Who's paying what)
