Tasmania, Port Huon, Notice to Mariners: 4 Nov 16

There is a sunken Timber tug located in Hospital Bay, Port Huon. She used to have a lit isolated hazard mark on her, which has gone away.

Here's the notice:

-------------------------------------------
Notice No.: M185-16
Title: Navigation Hazard – Port Huon
Valid From: 4/11/2016
Valid Until: Perpetual
Notice Content:
Mariners are advised that the buoy marking the sunken vessel Dooen in Hospital
Bay in position 43⁰ 09.530’ S / 146⁰ 58.357’ E is missing.
Mariners should navigation with caution in the area.

As you can see, MAST does not plan to replace the missing marker.

If you are planning to go to Tassie for next year's Wooden Boat Festival, you may want to download the notice to mariners direct, which includes a picture of the location of the Dooen, so as to be able to better avoid it.

If you think the mark should be replaced, then contact Julie Wells, e-mail address above, with your opinion, and your reasons for the opinion.

PS: I want to thank Bruce Morley who's beautiful Vertue, "Tui of Opua" is presently moored in the Marina Kermandie, for forwarding to us the above posted notice to mariners.

Thank you very much, Bruce & Thelma.

Fantastic place to visit. Enjoyed the Casino and also countryside and historic logging camps. People are friendly and hospitable. Recommend whether sailing or vacation.
