Huon’s Helping Hand Community Grant – Round 5

Volunteer Marine Rescue Kingborough would like to thank Huon Aquaculture for there support with there Helping Hand Community Grant.

This Grant has allowed us to upgrade someone of our safety equipment aboard Bendigo 1 keeping it in-line with the latest in marine technology.

The main purchase was a new AIS unit which allows Bendigo 1 to track and be tracked on the water. This provides us and other vessels with real time data of the location and heading of all vessels using AIS in the area.

Red Triangles = Possible Danger Vessels, Blue Triangles = All Other Vessels
