THE New Year period was mostly quiet for Marine Rescue units at Narooma and Bermagui.
Rough weather kept boat traffic down but the units would like to see more boaties do the right thing and log on before heading out.
There was a tow-in of a broken down fishing boat from of off Glasshouse Rocks on January 2, while the afternoon before the Narooma unit also searched for a grey inflatable boat sighted off Dalmeny.
Nothing could be located after a two-hour search and it was chalked down as a false alarm.
Narooma unit commander John Young was pleased to accept a donation of $500 from the Dalmeny Deviates toward the new Mill Bay pontoon that has to be complete by the time the Narooma’s new 10-metre rescue RHIB arrives in March.
“We at Marine Rescue Narooma are continually grateful to our local community and its visitors for their kind and generous support,” Commander Young said.
