Please note everyone who is coming down to Portland with there boats make sure your boat and trailer is up to scratch . The police have a boat blitz have been down here before 6am and are picking on and booking everyone. .

The police had the top access road blocked, so drivers had to go to the access point near the commercial ramp.

They had a number plate recognition camera setup, to get the tow vehicle and trailer number plates.

As previously stated people were getting booked for not wearing a life jacket, when driving the boat onto the trailer, also booked for riding in the boat once it leaves the water.

Not having a current registration label.

Fire extinguisher too small

I believe some were getting booked for having an unsecured load, when the fishing rods were standing up in the rod holders at the side pockets.

I wonder if any one got a warning, or was this a revenue raising exercise.

Do the police publish the data on each infringement notice they issue, plus it would be worth knowing the total value of those infringement notices.

I heard they were doing a similar thing at Bermagui, so answer me this, how do you or should you store your rods?
It seems like they / the community don't want people visiting and spending money in there towns, who wants to go to a place where waiting to launch is long enough without the cops hassling you prior to launching and starting your day off with a fine.
Anyway that's just my thought on the matter.

Love when we people don't follow the rules I.e no life jacket.
They say revenue raising.

I know If I got booked for unsecured Rods in the rod holders inside the boat I would let it go to court .. No way I would take that lying down.. If I did something genuine like wrong size fire extinguisher then I deserve the fine we all know what the rules are for that or should as it is genuine safety .

How on earth does fishing rods in the coaming racks constitute an unsecured load?

I also believe that they were also testing tow ball weight.

It would be interesting to know what else that they found fault with.
