German term or phrase: Liegewanne
GERMAN:
Die Zufahrt zu den Liegeplätzen sowie die Liegewanne soll auf eine Tiefe von 16,5 m ausgebaggert werden.
ENGLISH:
The approach channel to the berths and the *Liegewanne* will be dredged to a depth of 16.5 m.

By comparing articles on this topic in German and English, I came across "channel" for Liegewanne - is that correct? I already have "approach channel" for Zufahrt, so I'm not sure. Is this the place in the water where the ship is moored?
