Recently it was discovered that the very bottom section of the slipway, opposite the dolphin, had degraded to the point that we could no longer safely take cradles to the maximum depth of the slipway.
We have however continued to be able to slip vessels up to approximately 1.8 metres (6’ draft).
The Squadron has sought and approved quotes for the repair of the damaged section to restore full capabilities, and we expect repairs to be completed sometime in August. (Approvals and Works Permits must be processed by Parks Victoria before any work can be undertaken.)
If you have any questions about the slipway, or slipping, please contact Operations Manager Damien Ryan on 0412 137 183.
