SCYLLA - WELL UTILISED AS A RESEARCH VESSEL

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

SCYLLA

Built like a tank, the 5.90m 'Scylla' is well utilised as a research vessel. This vessel is highly equipped, including modern side imaginging sonar capabilities. This sits along side a stereo and auto pilot steering system. Side, rear and bow ladder access allows this shallow draft vessel to be used on sand and mud flats in estuarine systems and up to 15 nautical miles offshore. A self draining deck allows the on board saltwater deck wash system to clean equipment on the run. A manually operated davit system can be fitted which allows expansion in job possibilities. The 'Scylla' is able to be transported on its heavy duty aluminium trailer anywhere in Queensland and is a successful choice; having been engaged by the Australian Army in remote sectors within the Shoalwater Bay training area.

Dr David Rohweder

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
