How Much Antifoul Do You Spray Onto My Boat?
We spray 2 full coats & a 3rd around the leading / trailing edges & waterline


Do You Deliver Vessels?
We drive vessels from the Club's Marina or from the work berths located near the travelift. We give you a call the day before your lift to advise of your lift time. If you deliver your boat we offer complimentary berthing. Please advise at the time of your booking that you will require a berth and the Club to drive it around on the day of lift.


Do You Tow Vessels instead Of Drive Them?
No. Unless the vessel does not have an engine we insist on driving the vessel as it is too dangerous to tow vessels into the narrow travelift pen.  If you don’t want your vessel driven by our staff you will need to deliver it yourself.

I Need To Have My Boat Surveyed For Insurance; Can I Be Lifted Just For That? I Don’t Need An Antifoul.
Yes we have a service called a Quickslip – we hang you in the slings for one hour for the marine surveyor to do their out of water survey. Please email the Boatyard Office for price and availability


How Do I Pay If I Can’t Be There On The Day Of Launch?
At the time of booking we will send you a confirmation letter and attached will be an agreement form. If you are a Non-Member you will complete the bottom of this form with your credit card details. We do offer Bpayment or eftpos as an alternative, as long as we have your credit card on file. We send you a detailed invoice on day of launch and offer you 5 days to complete the transfer via Bpay. If we haven’t received your payment within this period, we will then charge your supplied credit card.


Can I Do The Work Myself?
As a full member you are very welcome to anitfoul your boat yourself so long as our conditions are met.
Please email the Boatyard office for price and availability


Can I Do My Own Waterblasting?
No. The Club staff are the only ones that operate the water blaster for insurance reasons and we don’t allow personal water blasters onto the yard as it has the high potential to disturb the boats cradled next to you.
