Chase back on the water

Gulf Harbour Yacht Club is delighted to have their club support and safety boat, called Chase, back on the water thanks to funding from Pub Charity.

The boat was unable to be used for more than eight weeks due to a worn out and unreliable outboard engine. 

The club received a grant for $10,000, which allowed it to purchase a new Mercury 60HP outboard 4-stroke engine.

Gulfland Marine arranged fitting of the engine and Chase was re-launched and the new engine run in on June 22.

The boat is now back at work, laying marks for the 26 sailing boats participating in the Winter Series race as well as operating as a patrol and safety boat.
