New trailers for Transport Safety Victoria

Transporting jet skis to and from Lake Eppalock for patrols is much easier for Transport Safety Victoria officers with two new trailers.

Transport Safety Victoria has two new jet ski trailers, thanks to Heathcote’s Easytow Boat Trailers.

TSV waterway user safety manager Paul Corkhill said the authority needed a supplier who could build trailers to a much higher specification than required by recreational users.

‘‘We were very happy when we received our new trailers,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s fitting we’re buying them off the banks of Lake Eppalock.

‘‘It’s become a bit of a hot spot — we had the tragic incident in January when a 12-year-old girl was killed.’’

TSV officers regularly use jet skis to patrol Lake Eppalock as they make it easy to navigate the many inlets and narrow passages.

‘‘Much of our work is making sure people adhere to space and distance rules,’’ Mr Corkhill said.

‘‘When vessels are within 50m of shore or other vessels they must slow to five knots.’’

Easytow Boat Trailers sales manager Andrew Brown said it was great to see TSV supporting a local manufacturer.

‘‘We pride ourselves on meeting customers’ needs that are outside the square,’’ he said.
