Thank you for your support and interest.
The harbour "board" is made up of I think of eight other parties, who by act of parilament are forced to fund the harbour board.
Theres alot of conflict of interest. Just imagine a harbour baord NOT acting in your interest.
Upping the fees gets the big boats out and your now thru phase 1 of shutting the whole thing down and cutting your funding.
Hence I think WSCC'S comment (LG Item 43)
Further to that, alledgedly the commercial users representative comes from a company that doesnt have a commercial place in the harbour any more. So theres another vote gone.
Clearly things may be signed sealed and actioned behind closed doors, so its a matter of enlightening those with alternative interests that we are out there, and "yes we do care".
There are 2 we should do right now that can help turn the matter around before it gets to far away.
1, Riase the profile, ask people to read the Pontoonalk thread
and this one.
2, Register our numbers.
Please leave a post either here or on pontoontalk expressing that
