Maritime Times No 66 Autumn 2019

1st Mar 2019

Search & Rescue was the theme for this issue, with articles on the St Helen's volunteer coastguard, Surf Life Saving Tasmania's Search & Rescue activities, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, volunteer run Tas Maritime Radioand Tasmanian Police Marine & rescue Services pretty much covering just about every aspect of modern day Search & Rescue in Tasmania. The story of the sinking of the Huon in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel a hundred years ago provides a little historic context and the issue rounds off with a review of the Museum's activities at the 2019 Mystate Australian Wooden Boat Festival.
