The checklist should include all personal items that may drop from pockets. To minimize this risk, members of the burial party should only carry items essential for doing the job and disguising their actions. Make a final inspection of the site for any traces of the burial. Because this is more difficult on dark nights, it is essential emplacers carefully prepare a checklist and use it. If an emplacer can safely return to the site during daylight, he can inspect it for any evidence of the operation. SUBMERSION D-89. Emplacing a submerged cache always involves two basic steps: weighting the container to keep it from floating to the surface and mooring it to keep it in place. Anchors and Moorings D-90. Ordinarily, container weights rest on the bottom of a lake or river functioning as anchors, and moorings connect these anchors to the container. Moorings also serve as handles for recovering a cache. If the moorings are not accessible for recovery, another line must extend from the cache to a fixed, accessible object in the water or on shore. The four types of moorings are buoy, line-to-shore, spiderweb, and structural. Buoy Mooring D-91. Buoy mooring uses a line run from the weighted container to a buoy or other fixed, floating marker that is fastened well below the waterline. This method is secure only as long as nobody moves the buoy. Buoys are generally inspected and repainted every 6 months or so. Planners must determine the inspection schedule before selecting a buoy for mooring. Line-to-Shore Mooring D-92. Line-to-shore mooring uses a line run from a weighted container to an immovable object along the shore. The emplacer must bury or otherwise conceal the section of line that extends from the shore to the container when using this method. Spiderweb Mooring D-93. Spiderweb mooring uses several mooring cables that attach to the container and radiate to...
