Installation of Navigation Lights continues

Installation of Navigation Lights continues



 One of the new navigation lights, installed at Lake Barrington. 


The installation of navigation lights continues with installation complete at Lake Barrington (Wilmot, Weeks Reach and Kentish Park boat ramps), Dee Lagoon (Spillway Bay), Lake Echo (Dam wall) and Lake Pedder (Edgar Dam and Scotts Peak boat ramps) completed.

The lights are a solar powered white beacon that have a range of 5 nautical miles in clear weather. The flashing lights activate at dusk and operate until dawn and are being placed to give the best possible visibility from the water to aid boaters find ramps in low light conditions. A full list of the light installations will be available upon completion (Early 2014) along with GPS coordinates for loading into on-board navigation aids as an extra back up.

These lights have been jointly funded by Hydro Tasmania and MAST with in ľkind support from IFS for installation and maintenance. Please report any operation issues to IFS on 1300infish or infish@ifs.tas.gov.au

OMG!!!  You mean that in Tasmania, fishermen are permitted on the water after dark?  According to SEQWater that's dangerous and thousands must be killed each year in Tasmania.  We can't be having that in South East Queensland!

Fished Barrington for a day a few years ago and the weather was atrocious!! Average for Tassie though...
The fog/cloud came in so we couldn't see 10m infront of us which makes it alot worse than night fishing! At least you can use lights at night, when it's foggy there's nothing to do for better visibility! As the fog lifted it started pouring rain and blowing a gale so we still couldn't see buggerall past the icicles on our eyelashes :)

Maybe the authorities here just don't want to have to patrol QLD waterways after dark, or at least eliminate their responsibility for incidents or accidents during the hours of darkness?

It just seems to be SEQ Waterways Darc.  I believe Monduran, Faust, Tinaroo, Teemburra, Kinchant, Eungella, Boondooma, Cania and Bjelke Petersen are all safe at night.  Maroon used to be quite safe at night, but now it's not.  I can only put it down to the presence of the Kilcoy Bunyip in the waterways of SEQ.
