Boat tie-up urgently needed..
Eastern Wharf or Carols Wharf vicinity
Hello neighbours along Florence Terrace and Richard Road. We have
somewhat recently bought Max Peet's old house, and we're now in urgent
need of a tie-up for our boat, which is used by my partner to commute
to work six days a week.
He is a boating professional, so we are happy to discuss payment
options which could include good old-fashioned cash, payment in beer
(he's a big lad and can carry lots) or perhaps boat or wharf
maintenance of some description.
Please rest assured that despite his size, he has been known to move
with stealth, so he won't make any noise as he ties up and walks by.
The kids and I catch the ferry to and from the island.
Please contact Sabrina on 0413 885 733 if you're able to help.
