Mooring Buoy

Mooring Buoy for the RMS Lusitania and RMS Mauretania in the River Mersey.

The accompanying picture shows the mooring buoy now laid down for the “Lusitania” and “Mauretania,” in that famous anchorage, the Sloyne, in the river Mersey. The buoy, which is the largest yet made, is securely anchored, and when the ship’s cable is attached, she rides easily and safely, there being ample room for her to swing with the tide. The buoy is so large that in order to transport it from London to Liverpool, an ocean liner—one of the Bibby Line—had to be requisitioned, its conveyance by rail or coastwise steamer being altogether impossible.
