Don’t neglect your boat

With the colder weather upon us, NSW’s Boating Industry Association (BIA) has advised recreational boat owners to utilise this quiet boating period to ensure their vessel is well maintained and equipped so they can launch safely back into their boating lifestyle when summer arrives.

The BIA promotes safe recreational boating and believes in the importance of having a vessel’s mechanical and safety equipment checked regularly. To assist boat owners, the BIA NSW, through its Marine Industry Mechanical Repairers Association (MIMRA), offers a 50 Point Safety Check service.

Designed for trailer boats, the check covers mechanical systems and equipment, safety systems and equipment, as well as safety aspects of the trailer.

The 50 Point Safety Check enjoys the support of BIA’s safety partners NSW Roads and Maritime Services, as well as Marine Rescue NSW, and insurer Club Marine.

At any time of year, Club Marine members qualify to receive a $50 premium rebate when they get a 50 Point Safety Check prior to policy renewal. For a short time only, the BIA invites all customers of the 50 Point Safety Check to enter the draw to win a Hobie Kayak valued at over $1500. This great prize will go to one lucky customer who has the check done before October 31, 2012. (Conditions apply, visit the website for details.)

The 50 Point Safety Check is provided by trade qualified members of the Marine Industry Mechanical Repairers Association, and offered at a recommended retail price of $99 per inspection. Providers are located throughout the NSW coastal region, and mobile services are also available to Greater Sydney, Illawarra and Central Coast locations.
