Check Your Inflatable PFDs before EVERY trip

Do you have an Inflatable PFD?

  • 72% of Tasmanian boaters do.
  • MAST considers this equates to in excess of 80,000 jackets.
  • Last financial year only one in forty two were serviced by manufacturer’s accredited agents. 
  • Is it auto or manual inflate?
  • Does your crew know how to use a manual inflate PFD?     

Will yours work when required?

Low Head Boat Ramp Upgrade - Delayed Reopening

Unfortunately yet another delay with reopening the ramp – now next Friday (27 June)! The dive crew the Contractors had booked to do the underwater work withdrew at the last minute. Fortunately they were able to get a replacement crew onsite on Wednesday and the dive work was finished yesterday. Just couple of things to finish off now and we should be ok to reopen next week.

Media release - AMEC (Australian Marine Engine Council)

The attached media release - released by the AMEC (Australian Marine Engine Council) yesterday - is extremely important for all in our industry. It details an update from Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt, which takes Australia a step closer to adopting Emissions Standards for outboard engines. Such regulations will mean no further import of high emission outboards.  This media release includes details of industry and AMEC contacts for further comment, as well as a link to the relevant page on the Minister's website.

Easter Fishing News

Scallop Season Opens
The 2014 recreational scallop season opens from this Saturday, 12 April and runs until July 31.  The D'Entrecasteaux Channel remains closed to protect scallop stocks, so you cannot take or possess scallops in this area or transit through it with scallops on board your boat.  Reports last year indicated that scallop divers were most active on the East Coast from Coles Bay to Marion Bay.
