Some dodgy (tempted to say โ€˜crappyโ€™) line and knots, but apart from that...what could possibly go wrong?!

Extra points to those players at home who can quote relevant likely MARPOL legislation violations.

MARPOL annexe IV Regulations for the prevention of pollution by sewage from ships. Unless it has a MARPOL certified STP or holding tank under the seat ๐Ÿ˜‚

A shark would think twice about circling around a boat, after realizing that ain't food that dropped into the water! ๐Ÿฆˆ

Could be classed as croc baiting if you head a little further north!

Craig Eggerling dack might need this next year ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thought it would face the other way so you could enjoy the view. No magazine rack either. Do. You hold the dunny roll in your teeth ??

Only violation I can see besides the knots ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ you have pointed out these is no basin to wash your hands or toilet paper holder half ass job I reckon ๐Ÿ˜‚

It's facing the wrong way & having a hole on the bottom kinda ruins the whole idea...

Where does one put the folded up newspaper?...๐Ÿ˜

Like everything is wrong!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

If more than 12nm from land then its all good๐Ÿค”

I like that it's called Cabo

๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Better than hanging your arse over the side ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Just don't eat any remora/ sucker fish lol

Jenny James

John Clarke this would be better than the bucket๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Mitchell Bell Lachie Masters?? Actually impressive. Would definitely give it a go

Giuseppe Fiore Pastore the long drop

MRHB was activated late this afternoon to provide a means of evacuation in support of the fire response in the Woodgate area. Hyne Timber Rescue and Rescue III departed at 1700 and slowly beat their way against the 15kt northerly and some impressive rollers coming in. As the vessels passed NU2, word came over the VHF that the task had been cancelled.

MRHB remains leaning forward, ready to respond should the need arise.

Some pics from yesterdayโ€™s mission to install the Ch22 repeater hardware. Not only did we get Ch22 back to operational status, we also got some great aerial images of a few of our well known landmarks.

The smile on Skipper Kevinโ€™s face suggests he was glad he beat Skipper Dave in calling โ€˜shotgunโ€™ for the front seat.

Well done to all concerned.

The VHF Channel 22 Repeater is back up and running!!

A huge thank you to Kevin from K-Volt who has today installed the new equipment, including a new cabinet, radios and repeaters with their power supplies. The old VHF aerial has been straightened and a new aerial installed. This gives us a redundancy for the future if we suffer storm damage in the area again.

The equipment was flown up in a squirrel helicopter and dragged 200m on a trolley from the helicopter pad up to the tower in very soft sand. Some of the track is covered with boards and the last section which is the steepest has concrete tracks. Quite an effort. The young helicopter pilot was a great asset in helping move the equipment.

A big thank you to National Parks and the volunteer lighthouse keeper for their help, through the process. The community will be forever thankful for the funding of the project from the Federal Government, the Hervey Bay Game Fishing Club and the Bundaberg Sports Fishing Club. We thank you all.

Hyne Timber Rescue was out today for a double-whammy activation today. The first stop was to render assistance to a 5m centre-console with a flat battery just east of Big Woody North. Following a quick jump-start, HTR headed to Kingfisher Bay Resort to tow a broken Bayliner back to UBH. A great opportunity to exercise crew skills and tools of trade.

Oh! I almost forgot to point out the last photo in this post. Skipper Gary was definitely seen playing a part in washing the vessel!!
