Sinking of the fascine mattress

The faggots are attached to ropes or towing lines. The towing lines are first attached from the fascine mattress to a float. A crane ship or crane pontoon tows the float via the ropes until the fascine mattress has reached its destination.

The top end of the fascine mattress is sunk using a sinking beam and the rest by dumping rocks onto it. Winches pull the sinking beam up again in readiness for the next action. Sinking of the mattress involves the work of a specialist and requires the experience of a sink boss.
