March 2010 – Boats and Boyne Tannum Hookup

Boyne Tannnum Hook UpAB Marine Services has had 2 more Polycraft vessels added to the fleet ready for work. Vessels are Sea Parrot which is 4.5m long and Sea Parrot ll which is 4.0m long.  AB Marine Services is getting behind the biggest and most popular fishing competition in the Capricornia region, the ‘Hookup’. We have decided to get behind this great event as it brings together the locals for a weekend of great fishing and boating, attracts tourists to the area, and shows that the Gladstone region has much to offer all tastes and interests.

In other news for the month AB Marine Services has purchased a 4.43m Quintrex Dinghy which is perfect for shallow water work, under wharf work, and also research purposes.

I first started using AB Marine Services a number of years ago and have continued to do so ever since. A prompt response to urgent matters plus safe and reliable work ethic from the AB team has kept our personnel and operations on track.  Peter Neven, Work Co-ordinator

Sandpiper Ecological Surveys has used AB Marine Services to conduct shorebird surveys at various sites on the Curtis Coast over the past two years. Regardless of whether we are working in Port Curtis, at the northern end of Curtis Island or in Port Alma, AB Marine are always on-time and, most importantly, their skippers are familiar with local conditions which is critical when working in shallow tidal waters. We have often consulted Adam and his crew about weather and tide conditions and have been provided with honest and accurate information. Adam and his team have always been courteous to Sandpiper staff and interested in the work being undertaken, even spotting the occasional shorebird. I have no hesitation recommending AB Marine Services to any organisation that needs to undertake aquatic-based surveys or research along the Curtis Coast. I certainly intend to use AB Marine whenever working in the Curtis Coast region.

I have been out with AB Marine more than ten times in the past year for project work in the Gladstone area. The staff are highly skilled, helpful and flexible and ensure our surveys run smoothly. I would always choose AB Marine as their service and local knowledge is second to none, and recommend them to anyone without hesitation! Jess – Wildlife Biologist

Major Ian Culloden

The purpose of this is to thank you and your staff for the support provided to me and the combined DSTO/US team. I believe that we all agree, your vessel's master on 'Scylla' became a very valued member of our team; above and beyond simply driving a boat. If I'm asked about marine support I'll certainly recommend AB Marine Services. The service was exemplarity. Major Ian Culloden, Defence Science and Technologies Organisation
