Rescue III was out today rendering assistance to a jetski broken down 2nm south of Urangan Boat Harbour. It was a long trip home to River Heads via ‘the dog leg’ as the ‘ski didn’t have a cooling system isolation stopcock. Speed less than 6 kts gave the ‘ski crew an extended ride on a rescue vessel and they were still smiling even after the novelty had worn off!
For those not familiar with NSW waters, this STBD lateral mark departed its position in the upper Hawkesbury River near Portland and was washed over 55 nautical miles down the river before departing Broken Bay via Barrenjoey Head. It was then washed another 30nm or so down the coast before being washed up at Bronte.
Seems at least one nav mark is quite happy to not be where it is supposed to be. Note-to-self!
#boatsafe #allisnotwhatitwouldseem#Repost @bagjuan 👉Hey Upper Colo (Hawkesbury), we’ve got your starboard marker. It’s on the Lift at Bronte. We’d drop it to you but the 300kg train wheel attached to the thing is a bit too heavy and the 150km round trip sounds average. #913 #rms #mothernaturemoving ... See MoreSee Less
