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……
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 job to check down below after major rain events.
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!!!!!
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.
The weather is all clear on the far north coast. The skies are blue and the water pristine. Plenty of fish to be caught and surf to be ridden. Come and see the legendary Pacific Coast……
Some much needed rain on the North Coast….but it didn’t stop people lining up for their Christmas seafood at the Prawn Shack at Yamba Marina….the new outlet for fresh seafood is open everyday (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day)…..come on down for the best fresh seafood…
The Prawn Shack has opened at the marina. The best ocean and school prawns for sale direct from the trawlers!!!!!! Run by the Clarence Rivers Fishermens’ Co-op this is THE place to get the best prawns on the east coast. Yamba Prawns are world famous…now you can buy them fresh and straight from the trawlers. Yamba Marina is proud to be home to The Prawn Shack……..!!!
Don’t forget that you can hire cars, trucks, utes and busses from us at Yamba Marina. We are the Thrifty agent for the region and are the only fulltime car/truck rental business in the Yamba/Lower Clarence River area. We are open 7 days a week (except Christmas and Boxing day) so if you need additional transport give the marina a call on 02 6646 9898 to make a booking. All our three and six ton trucks have hydraulic lifts on the back so loading and unloading is easy. For the three ton truck you only need a car license to drive it. It’s also automatic.
Level 1 water restrictions are now in place in the Clarence Valley.
What they means to us at the marina is that we must be very careful how we use water. Level 1 restrictions largely cover garden watering etc. There are no restrictions on industrial and commercial use HOWEVER we chose to limit our water use.
IF you need to wash your boat down USE A BUCKET for the water and only use the hose to finish the job off. Please do NOT leave hoses running at any stage.
The Clarence Valley is a part of NSW that is declared to be in INTENSE DROUGHT so lets all do our best to save water.
Please have shorter showers, turn taps off while brushing teeth and please try to do full loads of washing…not lots of smaller loads.
Thank you for your help. Water is life.
