What a not great ramp Peterborough VIC

Post by TopNote » Sep 15th, '09, 21:45

Hi all,

Currently checking out the Great Ocean Road by land and came across a ramp in Peterborough VIC that any sailor see a sign and you are always going to check it out. Well i did and instantly thought OMG what a place NOT use this one especially thoughts of checking out the 12 Apostles by water. The ramp is amazing and incredibly steep straight into the southern ocean of Australia. I will post a picture when get home. So if anyone else has seen this one before as well as my thoughts it maybe only for the bravehearted abelonie fisherman must use....

Cheers

Mark

Hi,

The day i was there the tide was in and no chance of turning around.........

So i say its a reverse up with only trailer and yes agree 4WD ramp only...... Out all the places i visited olong the GOR Peterbourough had a certain scent about it that was similar to a local refuge centre (tip for off seeweed)
