  Notice 2017-63: Notice of intent to remove vessel: 'Jack Day'

Denmark River, lower reaches

The vessel 'Jack Day' registration DB462, being a 7.9 metre plywood open boat, is currently sunk in navigable waters, in the lower reaches of the Denmark River, adjacent to the Denmark River Mouth Caravan Park.

In the opinion of a Department of Transport (DoT) Inspector appointed under the Western Australian Marine Act 1982, this vessel is likely to constitute a hazard or obstruction to other vessels using the surrounding navigable waters as a result of being sunken. Accordingly, the Marine Safety General Manager of DoT (a delegate of the Chief Executive Officer of DoT) hereby:

  1. Declares the vessel to be a navigational hazard; and
  2. Requires the vessel to be removed from its current location as described within 7 days from the date of publication of this notice.

In accordance with section 71(2) of the Western Australian Marine Act 1982, failure to remove the vessel, within the 7 days specified, will result in the vessel being removed by the DoT from its current location to the Shire of Denmark depot.

Pursuant to section 71(3) of the Western Australian Marine Act 1982, the cost of removal of this vessel will be a debt due to the Crown and will be recovered either by action in a court of competent jurisdiction against the owner and/or by the sale of the vessel.

Queries in relation to this matter can be directed to the Navigational Safety Team Leader on telephone 08 9431 1006 or email navigational.safety@transport.wa.gov.au
