VMR Bribie Island is frequently called upon to make safe unmanned vessels that have come adrift from their anchorages or moorings, particularly after stormy weather, and although this usually requires immediate action we do not have the authority to board the vessel without the owner’s permission so the delay in obtaining permission from the owner, or if the owner cannot be reached, from the Police, can further endanger either the vessel or neighbouring vessels or property.

By completing and submitting the form below you will have authorised our crews to board your unmanned vessel whenever it is deemed to be adrift or posing a danger to navigation and the necessary action to make it safe can then be taken without delay.
