 Minimum Under Keel Clearance (UKC)

 

Vessels entering or leaving Perth harbour should only do so after careful consideration of the dangers to navigation and only after the Master is satisfied that there is sufficient under keel clearance for the vessel at all times. Within Perth harbour areas, excluding slipway operations, a minimum UKC of 0.2 metres should be maintained at all times when manoeuvring or mooring. When calculating compliance with this requirement, the Master should take in to account the effects of squat, trim and heeling on vessel draught and the effects of atmospheric pressure, prevailing wind direction, waves and/or swell on actual sea levels. In addition, the inherent limitations of predicted tidal calculations (either from Admiralty Tide tables or computerised tidal programmes or applications) should be factored in to any calculation in order to ensure the above clearance. This should be incorporated into the vessel’s passage and pilotage plans. Local tidal information and copies of the latest harbour bathymetric surveys are available by contacting Perth Harbour Office, Tidal data can be found on the Perth Harbour website.

Further details can be obtained using the contact details below.
