Useful marina and council updates 01.04.2017

Marina Updates:
– There is still no power to the region, further updates on this as they come to hand.
– Water is available in the marina village, however it is not advisable to drink, fine for showers. Water will begin to come down the arms as we repair any pipe work sustained in the cyclone.
– Fuel wharf is being deconstructed and we are hopeful we can have fuel services available again by mid-next week.

– The marina staff are working tirelessly to relocate vessels to safe berths as they become available. If you are concerned about the safety of your berth or need to talk to the marina staff please email reservations@abellpointmarina.com or call 0438 799 689. We have heard Telstra is working on communication lines so we should have our office numbers back in action very soon.
