Fremantle Sea Rescue

Did anyone else see this unidentified flying object at Deep Water Point today?
This contraption is a WIG or wing in ground-effect that uses its stubby wings to fly efficiently just above the water in a high lift zone.

Thanks to Ashley Tunley for the footage

Yes I saw it! I was very confused as to what it was. Thanks for clearing it up 👍

I wonder at what point it becomes and aircraft and the vessel and crew need to be licensed as such🤔🤔

Technically it's an ekranoplan, and I have been suggesting this as a mode of ferrying people from the outlying costal suburbs to the cbd for years.

Fun if you’re the one on it, everyone else be needing ear muffs!

Guess you would need a pilot's licence & a boat licence as well. Looks great.

New Ferry to rotto??? Anyone??? Get above the chop and swells at 4 metres and it would be a quick and smooth ride.

Lucky it was a glassy day! Not sure how well this contraption would cope once the sea breeze kicked in 🤔

Looks like great fun on a day without a sea-breeze, and also rather crazy. An excellent combination.

Fancy a tow at 25 knots lads...better hang on!!

NO aerials in sight! Wonder where they stored the PFD's and EPIRB?

Platoon Boats out in Open Waters never go well if there are swells. They are more like Lake and Bay Boats

Haha, hope they had PFDs in the pontoons

Better than you think. Complete draining deck means no free surface effect..provided it's managed correctly it would be a safe though very wet trip.

This afternoon Resolute respond to a 24ft sports cruiser on the outer rockwall of Fremantle Sailing Club.
Even with this the strong sea breeze, the quick acting crew onboard Resolute were able to secure a line to the disabled vessel and tow it to safety.

And that’s a wrap for Movember!
At our end of year volunteer windup on Saturday night we finally got to shave off our ‘works of art’. Team Department of Fire and Emergency Services managed to raise over $27,900 towards this incredibly worthy cause.
