    I have a problem to select a suitable mooring system for an accommodation barge with following data:

    Type of vessle : Accommodation barge
    Dimension : 80 * 23* 5 m
    Draught : 3.5 m
    Place of work: Persian Gulf
    Sea condision: 6 B-Force

    For your information accordig to similar ship's data, we need 8 anchor each with 8 (ton) that seems over design.

    Can you help me to find a good reference to solve this problem?

    Thank you so much for your attention.

    Best regards

    How deep is the water - a pylon at each corner may be an option?
