Fees will be a given if you

Fees will be a given if you live north of Woodman Point and you better believe it'll be an all day parking fee even if you want to do a lap of the marina.

When they install a boom gate leading to the ramp that you have to pay to open to launch your boat I'll be happy to call it a launching fee.

Trailer parking at northern marinas

Mon, 2017-09-18 18:31

 IS about $12 per day, or $200 odd per annum. You have to go to the shire of wanneroo and pay for the permit in person, and take your rego papers ect. 

I predict a lot of ramp chaos, frustration of low catches until the whites actually start running. Early calls for when the whites are actually on the run (from those who get one or 2 whites per pot to start off with), and a lot of people who couldn't put a boat on the trailer in a timely fashion to save themselves. 

However provided everyone is civil, waits for the proper whites run, and no one goes pulling others pots, then we all should be rewarded with more than enough Crays for Xmas

Okay here goes !!

Mon, 2017-09-18 22:25

umm !! This will probably be the end of me

but I strongly disagree with paying boat fee??

And have done for a few years now so what I

put up is a hand written ticket stating that I

have put the money in the machine but did

not print out the ticket! It started when I

did pay but the machine was stuffed and

didnt print ! So now I use that as a season

pass !! Sorry but couldn't give s rats paying

rates and rest ! Had 2 warnings too report

but don't care ? Could get fined ten times

and I'll still be ahead !! Feel free too duplicate!

cheers pirate !

 Good on you mate, I reckon

 Good on you mate, I reckon having to pay a day fee is a fukcing rip off for an hours use. Then all the excessive license fees & only allowed two fish... WA should take a bit of a look at NSW and see how much they are gaffing us.

I got fined at OR last year for leaving my car down the bottom for a few minutes to get some tools down to the boat. I saw them & went to intervene but the wanker wrote the ticket anyway. I would have been there 5 minutes. (wasn't during peak time) 

Northern shires should take a look at the free Woodman facility and see how much they are ripping us off.

Cant wait for a dive.

Look forward to the abuse the 1% hopeless potters throw towards divers.
