The Group has recently installed an updated “Log on Log Off” sign advising our working and emergency channels and contact details.   The sign was erected at the Jurien Bay Marina by one of our volunteers, Mike.   A big thank you to Mike for a job well done!

GRAB A BARGAIN!!   Thinking about becoming a boating member but haven’t quite got around to it?   Well, now is the time to grab a bargain!!!   For the month of February our joining fee is $25.00 which will cover you until 30 June.   Renewal fees are $50.00 per financial year (1 July to 30 June).  There are a couple of ways to join as a boating member.   If you have a computer you can join on line.   Go to our website:   wwwjurienmarinerescue.com.au    Select “Boaties” from the menu, then under quick links (right hand side) select “boat membership form” and complete your details on the “boat membership application form”.  You can also upload a photo of your boat.   Then hit the “submit” key at the bottom.

There are two options to pay your subscription.

  1. Pay Online – using your credit card, bank account or Paypal account.   Your Jurien call sign will be issued as soon as payment is cleared.
  2. Manual payment. You can pay your membership by transferring funds from your account using internet banking or by posting a cheque.   Your membership will be processed once payment is received.   It may take up to seven days to issue your call sign.

Not computer savvy?   That’s OK, pop on down to see us and one of our friendly volunteers will provide you with a paper form and a biro!   We can’t accept credit cards, so you will need to bring your cheque book or cash (exact amount) with you.

A reminder to all boat members:   Have you paid your 2018/2019 subscriptions?   If not, your membership will be cancelled and your Jurien call sign will be re-allocated.   If you are unsure if you have paid or not please check with us.  Likewise, iIf you have changed your contact details, sold your boat, or bought a new one, or do not wish to continue as a member, please let us know.  It is important that we have your correct details on file, so please help us to update our records.   Our phone number is 9652 1950 or pop down to the Marine Tower and advise one of our volunteers.

Our Group monitors the radios 24 hours a day / 7 days a week (either at the Tower or through home bases).   Stay safe out there on the ocean. Take 30 seconds and LOG ON WITH US.   It is free!  Not only does it provide you with peace of mind, but also your Family and loved ones will know that you are being looked after.  Most importantly it will allow us to locate you quickly should an emergency arise.

A reminder to all Boaties:  If logging off for the day, after 1600 hours (4.00 pm), please remember to do so outside the Marina.   This provides a better radio reception for our Home Base Operators to respond to your calls.   The Home Base Operators will continue to monitor the radios out of these hours.

Please remember to LOG ON AND LOG OFF.

Our working channels are 21 VHF and 27.91 mega hertz.

Emergency channels are 16 VHF and 27.88 mega hertz.
