Marlo Ocean Entrance – general caution

DATE:   13 January 2016

DETAILS:  A recent Marine Incident that occurred on the Marlo Bar (Snowy River) ocean entrance has highlighted the risks involved for vessel operators attempting to make passage across the Marlo ocean entrance bar.

Mariners are reminded that the ocean entrance to Marlo is dynamic and continuously changes in position and depth and can do so over a very short period of time. Generally the ocean entrance is very shallow and is exposed to offshore weather events.

Bar Crossings are regarded as extremely dangerous and can cause serious personal injury or death when unfavorable environmental conditions  exist.
