Update 7th December 2017
Plenty of work has been going on at the creek in preparation for our new Boat shed.
On Wednesday the slab was poured.
Thanks to all who lent a hand .








---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Update 2nd December 2017
Last weekend we had a storm come through and unfortunately one of our members boats was lost.
John's boat Jalu was smashed up and sunk due to the large slip breaking its moorings.
It was very sad  as Jalu was one of the finest wooden boats in the creek .
Our thoughts are with John.



               Jalu at her best                                                                               After the destruction

Update 23rd October 2017
The annual dredging of the mouth of the creek is about to happen.
The dredge at the moment is moored just in side the mouth which can make it a task coming in when the swell is running.
Caution is key when entering the creek at the moment.







-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Update 11th October 2017
The ramp beside our slipway has had the concrete bollard's removed and a security gate installed.
The ramp it self has not been renovated at this stage but I'm sure that if we require it in an emergency then we will be able to access it with the authority from the local police or council.
The ramp will not be available to the public.

Update 5th February 2017
The wave baffles at the mouth of the creek have been finished and the difference they make to the swell
in the creek is amazing. This project will benefit all those that moor in the creek and it all so makes safe passage in and out of the creek.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 10th October 2016
We experienced some really strong winds in the last three days and as a result one of the old pine trees on the creek finally gave in and smashed down on to some of the boats in the creek.
Two boats were able to be saved with extensive damage however not all the boats were able to be saved and in the photos below you can see one has been sunk.
With the unstable weather condition its important that we all take care of our boats and others.
If you see something wrong please contact the police or better still the person that owns the boat or property.  




----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 3rd September 2016
Reconstruction of the Mordialloc Creek wave baffles.
For a long time all of those who own a boat in the creek especially those who are moored in section A have
been waiting for this day to arrive.
With the new wave baffles in place it will mean less swell in the creek and less damage to the moored boats.
At a cost of $1,000,000 Parks Victoria are responsible for the reconstruction.
I'm sure we are all looking forward to the finish date and seeing for ourselves just how important the baffles are to the creek and safety of our boats.

 Update 25th March 2016

After some hard work and many hours Alley Cat has been renovated.

Well done to all who helped out .

On the day of launching the wind and tides were working against us but we succeed in getting Max's boat  to its mooring. A big thanks to Russell.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Update 28th February 2016

It was great to see how our club members rally together to help one another out.

Today after the BBQ several members got together to help Max re float Ally Cat from the mud of the creek.

It took a great deal of effort to raise her up and then get her up on the slip where she can be restored.

For all those guys that lent a hand we thank you very much.
