Marine volunteers ready to impart their wisdom at info night

BOATIES have the chance to learn more about Fraser Coast waterways and the correct way to operate vessels in them.

Volunteer Marine Rescue Hervey Bay commodore Tom Hudson said Tuesday night's information session was worthwhile for anyone with an interest in boating.

"It will encompass a certain amount of local knowledge, we introduce them to VMR and give them a spiel and PowerPoint presentation," Mr Hudson said.

"We have someone who comes along and gives them local information - where the sandbars are, some good fishing spots, talks about wind and tide so it's quite interesting."

The information night begins at 6.30pm at the VMR headquarters on Buccaneer Dr in Urangan.

Mr Hudson said the group was also looking for help from people interested in getting involved in the service, particularly someone to train as a radio operator.
