Moreton Bay Mariners
‘Moreton Bay has always had its share of ‘personalities’ among those who have chosen to spend their lives in its domain. Its waters demand respect based on seamanship of the highest order, common sense, courage in adversity, an intimate knowledge of its channels and shallows, compassion for others, and a love of freedom that only an outdoor life can offer; and if the odd eccentricity should surface, then all the better! There is a spirit of camaraderie amongst the boatmen that helps define a special quality of‘Moreton Bay people’. It derives from an intimate knowledge of its everchanging waterways, and a realisation of Man’s dependence on the whims of Nature, and of the unwritten requirement to help others out in times of need. The bay can be a dangerous place to the unwary.’
