Cockburn Floaters

Howdy Folks,

Part of the Kwinana bulk jetty has 'liberated' and there are large pieces of timber washing up along the naval base horse beach. We noticed a few larger pieces (like railway sleeper sized) floating past the window yesterday.

I have rerported it to Freo Ports and they are going to clean up the beach and I have also reported it to Cockburn Sea Rescue though if you are out in the sound on the weekend, just keep your eyes open.

 Well, I expected a different thread than that. Having deposited the odd floater myself.


Anyhoo, those timbers would also make awesome furniture, eg Bar tops and coffee tables etc. What I like is the providence of the item as well, eg where it came from, the history. So help your mates and remove them from being a shipping hazard, turn into a bar story
