Water Police say they are disappointed that safety messages are not getting through to some boaties and personal watercraft operators after issuing more than 20 infringement notices on Port Phillip between Mount Martha and Sorrento last weekend as part of Operation Southend.

“Overall we saw good behaviour on the water from a lot of boaties and PWC users,” said Sergeant Dave McHenry. “That said, it’s disappointing to see the message about safety still not getting through for some people. Boats and jetskis are not toys; they are incredibly dangerous when used recklessly.

“Everyone wants to be able to enjoy themselves and not become involved in a potentially devastating marine incident. This summer we don’t want to see any family having to deal with the consequences of carelessness or dangerous behaviour on the water.”

Sgt McHenry said police also conducted 165 boat and 17 PWC inspections, issuing 28 warnings for safety equipment breaches. “It’s fantastic to see that the majority of people are making the right choices to stay safe, carrying appropriate safety equipment.”

Water Police will continue to patrol the area over the coming weeks to ensure boaties and PWC users observe speed and distance rules. People can call the police assistance line on 13 14 44 to report non-urgent incidents of dangerous behaviour on the water. In an emergency, call 000.
