Why get a Boating Permit?
« on: April 10, 2013, 09:44:12 AM »
I'm wondering what it is we get in return for our SEQWater Boating Permit for Somerset or Wivenhoe.  What does the $15 for a weekly permit cover?

Ask them should only take 3 years and 3 or 4 consultants to get a reply.

The permit is required for all vessels carried on a trailer I'm told, so it must have something to do with Boat Ramp maintenance.  If you carry your kayak on a roof rack you do not need a permit.  SEQWater have leased Billy's Bay, and I'm an associate member of the Sailing Club so I guess I technically don't need one for there.

If the kayak comes off a trailer, yes. The permit is required for "all trailerable vessels". So if you can fit your 6m boat on your roof rack, then that boat doesn't require a permit........... go figure.  :o

Only if you take your kayak on a trailer. I guess the permit is supposed to be used to fund the upkeep of boatramps.

SEQWater don't have upkeep of the ramp at Hays Landing because they've leased it out to the Sailing Club.  Why should I pay for a permit if I launch there?

Did anyone think to ask for the permit fees to be removed when they put in their submission re the recreational use of SEQ waters dams.
 I did not think of it.
 I wonder if the people who turn up with 6 yaks on their purpose built yak trailers buy 6 permits?
 Cheers

That was my point Ray.  I took the Wave Runners to Somerset on Sunday.  I have two on one trailer.  I had to buy a weekly permit for both.  I got one receipt/permit but had to pay $30.00.  I only launched once, and I was a bloody sight quicker than any other fool on the ramp that day too!  Where do they get off charging me twice for using the ramp once?

I was also told a couple of years ago that if  I purchased a boat permit, from the sailing club it can only be used for wivenhoe but if I go over to the info centre and get a boating permit it can be used on both dams, so I got mine at the info centre. If you pay the same money you should have the same deal.

Dale at least you were honest unlike a lot of others. One of my pet hates ( I admit there are a lot) is at Hinze where only about 1 in three bother getting a fishing permit but they are happy to catch the fish that the permits pay for.

Boating permits at Wivenhoe and Somerset do not pay for fish!  Boating Permits at Hinze and North Pine go to the Stocking Groups.  How can SEQWater explain that one!  They said they would introduce fairer rules over a year ago.  What happened to that SEQWater?  They can't even keep up with their own BS.

I can understand why in this case..... it would be a bit wrong IMHO if a sailing club on Wivenhoe were to issue a permit for another lake where they have no interest.....
