Replaced worn yellow polypropylene mooring line with new polysteel mooring line. Replaced worn eye-splice in mooring pennant. This shipwreck site is subject to recreational fishing traffic so divers should be on the lookout, and avoid, fishing tackle caught in the mooring.

Julia B. Merrill04/05/2021DeployedNW-C-0284-21The mooring line on the Julia B. Merrill often gets overgrown with dark-green algae. SOS Toronto Chapter would appreciate it if divers using this line on descent and ascent helped us keep this line clean. Also, if you get to the block and notice that the 5-gallon block chain lift jug is missing, is wrapped around the mooring line, or is less than 100% full of air, please notify us at [email protected] Thank you.
