I will go and have a look dennis I was at a meeting with BBV on we'd I was told the temporary markers will be installed next week weather permitting I think it is going to be tricky at low tide now I am waiting for it to open and check the depth at low tide they reckon it will be 1.2 mt I told him he is dreaming

Just had a look and it’s still closed
Went out on the kayak there 3 weeks ago and stopped at the yellow bouys at the entrance to check the depth, using the paddle as depth gauge seemed a bit over metre at mid tide. The busy season is going to be interesting regarding the less room and other wash down tap not being reinstated.

We have hounded BBV over the need for 2 floating pontoons either side of the ramp it will be chaos peak times and there will be collisions in the harbour and the 90 deg turn to get in

It’s going to be tight. Was there any other issues raised in the meeting?

Why the entrance was reduced from 25mt as per the original plan to 20mt. Because excavator has a 20 mt boom don't need a floating dredge. Lack of space for launching and retrieving especially with the yacht club using this ramp and 75% of the caravan park use this ramp because theirs is to shallow.
A lot of people don't know which side to pass a boat coming at you so the narrow channel and entrance is a recipe for disaster. We wanted to know who is responsible for dredging the entrance how quick it would get done will there be a maintenance plan for the dredging or just adhoc. Clifton Springs has loads of trouble with their entrance silting up and we expect the same to point richards.
