Pink Water Taxi Newspwt

Welcome aboard to Michael 'Micky' Spiller who joined the taxis on Saturday.  In getting his Coxswain's ticket, Michael has been at the mercy of NSW Roads Traffic and Maritime
for the last three months and now knows the true meaning of bureaucracy.

His was a baptism of fire; he started on Saturday night, in the pouring rain and had Matt and Nikki's wedding at Tennis.  I think there was even another party in Lovett Bay.  Albeit a little shell-shocked, he came through with flying colours, sense of humour intact and undeterred.  Solid effort!

Rod and Alex are extremely pleased to see Michael.  Finally (and not before time) the taxis can now get back to normal hours of operation.

Moving on to the administrative.  The Mon-Fri 6am-6pm $12 cash Commuter Special from Bell Wharf to Church Point will cease as of Monday 25 November.  The $12 Special was only ever intended to run through the winter but given the significant disruption to our customers over the last couple of months, we felt it only fair (token though it was) to keep it running until services could be returned to normal.  So Bell to the Point is back to full fare; $16 Mon-Fri 0600 to midnight and $18 on the weekend.

For quick updates to our hours, check www.facebook.com/PinkWaterTaxis or follow @PinkWaterTaxis on Twitter.

Coffee Table


This is a Matt Blatt replica of the original design.

East meets west with the Replica Isamu Noguchi Coffee Table, a triumph of minimalist design that combines natural and manmade materials for a stunning effect. With a catalogue of work spanning six decades, Isamu Noguchi drew inspiration from his Japanese father and American mother. As a designer and architect, his work is characterised as being influenced by both eastern and western cultures to create simple yet eye catching designs.
