For Victoria, ramp cameras now working (some anyway). Also has a good weather page. Signing up gives you quick links to your favourite ramps.

The Vic boating website is interesting - It appears to recognise every sort of watercraft, including paddle craft,keel boats, power boats, off the beach dinghies and cats in their "show your boating interests here" section when one signs up, but falls short of allowing for trailer sailers in both the picture section and their "boating details" area. No wonder we struggle when it comes to dealing with overhead obstacles at boat ramps. "Same old, same old" from our public servants. :evil:

Yes I was annoyed when I had to clarify the Jarcat as a Keel boat. Since Trailer Sailers have pretty special needs where ramps are concerned, you would think someone there may have noticed the lack. Now that you have reminded me I'll remind them...

Edit: Done - used the contact email address.

Good afternoon John

Thank-you for taking the time to provide feedback, we will forward on to the project team and see if we can get Trailer Sailer included in the vessel type.

Safe boating.
