New all level pontoon for Swan Bay boat ramp

The new moveable pontoon at Swan Bay boat ramp.

Marine and Safety Tasmania has just installed a new pontoon at Great Lake's Swan Bay. This runs down the middle of the double width ramp and can be moved up and down the ramp as lake levels change.

This is one of two prototypes (with the second being installed at Arthurs Lake dam wall) being trialled by MAST.  Performance and suitably will be assessed and any modifications made before other locations are considered. MAST and IFS welcome feedback from users to assist in this assessment.

It will be welcomed by the many boat fishers that use this popular facility.
These pontoons are being funded by Marine and Safety Tasmania from the Recreational Licence Fund.
