I had hoped that I would now be advising you that we were about to call a Special General Meeting to start the Floating Marina Stage 1.
As you know, we and many other marinas are dealing with significant surge issues in Hobsons Bay. It’s put two members in hospital.
The Hon Melissa Horne and Mayor Jonathon Marsden are aware of the issues and as a result Department of Transport is about to issue an “Expression of Interest” to study surge.
This study is to identify the causes of surge and recommend solutions to the problem, and is due for delivery by mid year.
It is possible that some form of physical barrier may be recommended for Hobsons Bay.
The study may require us to make changes to our Floating Marina design.
The bottom line is that your General Committee consider it prudent to await the outcome of this study before we proceed further with our Floating Marina.
