Where would we be without our volunteers great work

Great work team

Great work guys! Thank you for keeping us safe!

A Search and Rescue Exercise (SAREX) was conducted today bringing together volunteers from Volunteer Marine Rescue Bundaberg, VMR Hervey Bay, Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Great Sandy Straits and Tin Can Bay, and the Fraser Coast SES Unit. Queensland Police Service Water Police ran the SAREX that had everyone in a co-ordinated search of local waters and islands in a training scenario involving four people missing from an upturned vessel.

Lunch was generously sponsored by Aldi, and was greatly appreciated by all the hungry volunteers.

Hyne Timber Rescue and the duty crew were called out this morning after a 42ft monohull reported taking on water near Yankee Jack Creek after fouling their anchor with the prop shaft. It was confirmed that the yacht’s bilge pumps were keeping on top of the water coming in through the damaged hull, so a slow tow back to Urangan proceeded.

Technology is a wonderful thing. No bow thrusters just Hamilton Jets and Yanmar Diesels.

Following some ‘interesting’ weather earlier today (serious rain driven by 48knot northerlies), Hyne Timber Rescue went out to assist 30ft monohull with a failed rudder.

An informative Crew Training Day today with Tash from Queensland Ambulance Service running crew through how we can help Paramedics and First Responders in dealing with patients on board. We also got to get Seniors Mark and Rory converted to the new vessel.

(Note, while the stretcher was moved on the deck while alongside, it was not moved from vessel to pontoon)
