Important Boat Safety Information

The volunteer bosuns have almost completed the deck replacements on the Jetty 3 fingers. Part of the process required the removal and replacement of the cleats on each finger. While every effort has been made to have the lines returned to the same location, there may be some that are not. As a precaution and to avoid the potential for damage to boats due to the weather forecast for Wednesday into Thursday and on Friday, skippers are asked to come and check that their vessels are secure and mooring lines are correctly set up.
