Petrol Stolen at Tennis Wharf

Last night (Friday 5th December) a full tank of fuel was syphoned from the petrol tank of my boat moored at Tennis Wharf.

If anybody saw anyone hanging around or messing with boats can you please let me know so that I can inform the police.

Attention boat owners who park at Tennis there is a thief using our wharf

Yesterday I put a jerry can of fuel in my boat and left it with the intention of getting Trys to put it in as I can't lift it. This morning it has been taken! Now I know that this is not usually a good idea but Tennis has always been a safe wharf.

Wanted urgently

A couple looking to rent a house offshore from early January

We have been renting offshore for the past 7 years and are looking for a rental property urgently, as we have to vacate by January 5th, 2015.  Ideally we are looking for a long term arrangement, preferably with water access. 

We are responsible, caring tenants, we have excellent references, and can be quite flexible about interim arrangements. 

Unfortunately the owners of the property have decided to sell, so we need to vacate quickly.

Please feel free to contact us with any opportunities or plans you might have.

Boat Missing

My boat disappeared on Tuesday from the Pasadena wharf at Church Point.

It's a big silver tinny with a Yamaha 15 hp engine.

Please call Cath on 0424745208 if u have seen it.

Boat Bailler Wanted

Seeking boat-bailer for tinny at Commuter Wharf over Xmas and the New Year:

I'll be away visiting family at this time and I normally sling a near neighbour's son some pocket money for any bailing that must be done to keep my boat afloat. This year their family will also be away however.

I was wondering if any other boat-savvy kids from the Island or Western Shores might be interested? You'd obviously need to not be going away on holidays yourself - and be OK with potentially getting wet if bad weather stuck around.

More bails = more cash however.

Call Simon on 0417663332 for more info - cheers!
