Slip in Central Queensland

I have a Seawind 1000 in Yeppoon and appraoching time to do an anti foul. Not having done this before in this area can any locals advise whom would be best to take out of water and complete the anti foul job.

Rosslyn Bay as i understand it is not an option due to beam of seawind, leaving Gladstone, Rocky or perhaps Mackay?

I am looking for shipyard to do complete job.

Also looking for recommendations for outboard mechanic to complete annual service on engines.

Thanks.

Bundaberg, or if you don't mind going a bit further south you could try Maryborough slipway.

Re: Slip in Central Queensland

Just rang the Capricorn Cruising Yacht Club and they advise that they are currently building a cradle to allow removal of Cats. The travel lift at shipyard is only capable of around 5.5m.

Re: Slip in Central Queensland

Don't know prices but there are two in Mackay.

Shipyard 0749555300 or 0439575370 shipyard*at*mackaymarina.com

They must be reasonable as are always busy and often boats from Whitsundays come down. At Mackay marina.

Other is Mackay's Boat Yard contact john bates 0749532283 or 0402738999 email: jbates*at*mackayboatyard.com

Cheers

Re: Slip in Central Queensland

Have you looked at the two on the north side of the Fitzroy?

Thumbs up Re: Slip in Central Queensland

I vote for Bundaberg Port Marina. They have a very capable yard, mechanics, sail repair (not a sailmaker as such), SS welding and machining, shipwright and chandlery - all within walking distance - most on site.

The slipping is by Marine Travelift - so I am not sure of the capacity for multihulls. Give them a call.

I slipped Charon there in October and will head back in March. We have chosen Bundy as our base. Very well set up for marina living, slipping and maintenance. Also recommend the galvanising people in Bundy. And you can get a two course meal at the Blue Water Club at Burnett Heads for $10 on sunday nights - pick up and drop off at your boat.

Good people to deal with.
