Everyone has been working hard to keep the hardstand tidy for the busy season. It is a never-ending job. PLEASE REMEMBER; The hardstand will be closed for lifts between Friday December 21st 2018 and Wednesday January 3rd 2019.

That does not mean you cannot be out of the water at that time. It just means if you have some major work to do we might be able to do you a good deal on extended hardstand time. The marina will be open everyday, EXCEPT Christmas Day and New Years Day. If your boat is on the hard during the time of no lifts you will still be able to work on it. Talk to Graham or Sonya.

Local Al Morrison took his great shot showing how Yamba is growing and getting on the map. More than 400 hot rods in town for a great weekend. The reason were are showing you this is to remind boat owners to book in to the marina for the holidays. We won’t have too much space for late arrivals. While we always try to cater for travelling boats, it is a great help if you can telephone or contact us by email in advance of your arrival. We look forward to seeing you over summer.

Two of these locally-built boats are bound for Sydney this week. Well done Harwood Marine!!!

100 years. So many young lives lost so we would have our freedom. At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

Tiare 11 (two) is a Woollacott Ladybird.  She’s in beautiful condition and her owner is selling because of illness.

BE AWARE:  Tiare 11 is so important to her current owner that she wants to make sure a new owner is someone who wants to maintain the character of the vessel into the future. This boat is loved.

Details from the marina office. More pictures and details on Gumtree and other boat sites from next weekend.

Clouds rolling in from the south. A perfect day turned upside down very quickly. But it was all over very quickly too and

nowhere near as bad as it looked. But it did look spectacular!!!!. Photo by Kent Sheppard.

The yard has been very busy after all the rain. If you plan to get the boat out before the summer rush we suggest you book in soon. Long-term commitments on the hardstand are limiting space and we need to plan ahead to fit everyone in.

The seas remain confused and big. Stay away from bar crossings.
