NEW RESCUE BOATS coming soon . . . .

Our new rescue boats purchased with the Sports Capital Grant are due to be delivered very soon. There have been some changes in the plan for logistical reasons. Its vital that we have our new containers at Broadmeadows in place before our new boats arrive.  There is still a worrying amount of theft of engines on the East Coast. The containers will provide some preventative measures but this will also allow the engines to be kept on the boats at all times, thus making rescue duties a lot easier to manage.

The original plan was for the new storage to be put in place just the weekend before the arrival of the new boats but this is the revised plan . . . .


6pm – 8pm

6-8 people required, including if possible an electrician

·    Green container cleared completely as this will be taken off site the following day to be scrapped.

Delivery of five new Containers





Delivery of all new Rescue boats

We need lots of volunteers in the final phase of this project as we have had to move our date forward to this week which I know is a very big ask and rather late notice. We have to separate our movements of containers with the delivery of new ones. In many ways this actually works out better for us as we now do not have to clear out the entire yard for crane movements. It does however mean that we all have to pitch in to get this very tight timeline to work. If you are free to help in anyway please contact the commodore by email
