Making waves in Marine Safety
M.A.S.T make their presence known this year with all new displays serving as a visual reminder of the importance of buoyancy whether the boat is new or old.
Marine and Safety Tasmania are the state governing body when it comes to marine safety, marine facilities and the management of environmental factors relating to water-based activities.
It’s easy to see why with the site's impressive cross-section of a dingy being a life-size example of the kinds of buoyancy required by MAST in boats new or old. Recreational Boating Officer Storm Eastley
“We’re here to educate the general public about rules and regulations as well as safety when out in the boat.”
M.A.S.T is also introducing customers to the new Deckee app, which is free and endorsed by the Tasmanian Government. Deckee helps to keep safety information accessible, up to date and in the palm of your hand whether you're thinking about taking the boat out on the weekend or a cruise across the Bass Strait.
Keeping safety at the forefront M.A.S.T is hosting an extensive range of Personal Flotation Devices that show the kinds of safety equipment they expect to use on the water. M.A.S.T can also assist with servicing and making sure your permits are up to date and to standard before risking it out on the waves.
For more information, or to check out the new displays head over to M.A.S.T at site M66.
