The landing barge that did such great work during the Mallacoota fires in Victoria on her way home to Townsville. Great job by the crew on board….Army men and women we should be all very proud of. Thank you guys.

THE WEATHER…….

February has been quite a month so far…..330mm of rain to date compared to the long term average for the month of 157mm. The February temperature so far has averaged 26.9 degrees…long term average 26.7 degrees…. Blue skies now….good time to get work done on your boat. Call Graham to book a lot.

DODGE THE DEBRIS….

The rain might have gone for now…but the Clarence River is chocked with debris from the flood. We’ve seen trees, fences and dead animals floating past.  The obstacles remain mostly submerged so BE CAREFULL IN YOUR BOAT.

WHO’D BE A WEATHER MAN……

Weather forecasting is a difficult business. This view is looking north today. So far in 2020 we’ve had 515mm of rain. The long term average for the same period…..297mm. And to think a few weeks ago the skies were full of smoke. A good time to check the bilges….water gets in to boats from very […]

WET DAY FOR FISHING…..

Its a wet start to the holiday weekend….but the three fishing charter boats are out at sea…the weather will get better….but the rain is very, very appreciated……enjoy Australia Day……

SUNS OUT…….so check your boat……

Yamba has had more than 200mm of rain in the past two days….that almost 8 inches of moisture. This is a reminder to check your boat for excess water….we all know that rain can find its way into almost any hull. We do keep on eye on the lines of each boat….but its the owners […]

IT’s RAINING….and RAINING…..

It’s pouring in Yamba. In the past 24 hours nearly 150mm of rain…that’s about six inches on the old scale….the pools are full, the grass is soaked….and the skies are grey. More rain predicated along with some strong winds. Isn’t nature grand!!!!!

HARDSTAND BOOKINGS – Plan ahead

Our handstand is full and we cannot take any more bookings until the end of January. If you are planning to pull your boat out we suggest you call Graham after the Australia Day long weekend to make your plans.
