  1. First of all, establish the communication between the mooring station and bridge.
  2. Switch on the mooring power packs of winches. During cold weather let them run 10-15 minutes in advance in order hydraulic oil to heat up to normal working temperature.
  3. Master informs the mooring station about the mooring plan after discussing it with the pilot: which side the ship will be alongside, which line will be sent ashore first (Spring line, Breast line, Head/ Stern Line).
  4. Mooring ropes should be laid on the deck for ready to letting go.
  5. Appropriate gear of the mooring drum is engaged which is supposed to go first.
  6. The heaving line prepared.
  7. As soon as the ship reaches near the birth Master will inform the mooring stations about when to let go the heaving line.
  8. Heaving line with the monkey fist end will be thrown ashore and bridge to be informed.
  9. Mooring ropes sent ashore by the heaving line as ordered by the master in accordance with the mooring plan.
  10. Send one/ two ropes at a time as required by the linesman.
