CARIDEA - A TOUGH POLYETHYLENE WORK BOAT

Sunday, September 24, 2017

CARIDEA

The 4.1m 'Caridea' is a tough polyethylene work boat. This poly craft is housed on a galvanised trailer, with lifting lugs also fitted to the vessel for crane deployment. The 'Caridea' is suitable for large scale projects as a run around vessel on the marine work site. For research, the vessel boasts open deck space and stability. Manouvarability is emphasised by a tiller steer 40hp Yamaha outboard making the vessel suitable for creek, lake or harbour work modes. The polycraft design is ideal for under wharf inspections or as a tender for larger vessels..

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!

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.

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
