Stubby holder also works great if no glove is available 😎

You guys are all just great. Have a Merry Christmas

Not sure in the conditions we wanted to shoot a Parachute flare 300m in the Air but a Signal flare, now that's a different story

Thanks to everybody who came down to Leeuwin Boat Ramp for another Log On/Off clinic and flare demo.

Great morning. I think we managed to get at least 12 people to join as boat owners plus some very valuable conversations regards the benefits of logging on.

What are the odds of this?!

What are the odds of this?!Catch of the Day You're the trawler skipper and the net feels heavy. This is going to be a good haul. Well it was - just not what he was expecting. Remember in August when we rescued the two fishermen whose boat sank 20 nautical miles off Mooloolaba? Bet they thought they'd never see it again. Well not until the trawler's catch of the day was their boat. Hauled up, refloated and brought back to Mooloolaba, it now sits a bit the worse for wear at the Water Police pontoon. What are the odds of that happening? ... See MoreSee Less

Hope they buy the trawler a new net. Would have ruined a heap of gear.

Well done trawler crew for getting it up and back to shore

And it shows that trawler nets would be catching all sorts of wildlife that they shouldn’t

Not actually all that unusual for the trawlers in that area to have an over size catch. They’ve been snagging all sorts of equipment ever since everything was pushed off an aircraft carriers deck at the end of WWII....

A can of start ya bastard, a set of new plugs and that Yamy will up running no worries 😆

Craig Langton 😳

Wow, but my first reaction was...why were they 20nm out in that?

Spray some "start ya bastard" in it and she'll fire straight up 😂

Happy 4th birthday to our Rescue Operations Centre!
On November 26th 2016, we officially opened our state of the art Rescue Operations Centre and Head Quarters in the historic Fremantle Signal Station at Cantonment Hill.
The building was originally constructed for Fremantle Ports in 1956 was only used as the port control centre for 8 years before the operations were moved to the new Port Authority Building where it remains today.
From 1964 until late the 1990s, the building was home to Australian Army personnel before becoming derelict in the early 2000s.
In 2014 FSR were the successful applicants to the City of Fremantle where they granted us a 20 year lease of the building. Our volunteers put a huge amount of blood sweat and tears into restoring the derelict building and with the generosity of sponsors and local businesses, we were able to return this incredible heritage listed building to its former glory, ensuring it remains a vital marine communications centre for the Perth boating community.
