Policy and rules
Tractors are available to OBC members aged over 18 years who
have completed tractor instruction from OBC staff, and proven
competency. The tractor policy and rules have changed to
comply with the operational guidelines of the tractor
manufacturers. Vessels greater than 7 metres tip-to-tip hull length
(including bowsprit and boarding platform) need a weight
certificate for the boat/trailer combination. Please contact the office for guidance.
Tractors are available for moving vessels to and from ramps, and
should not be left attached while vessel repairs are
A log book is provided in the tool-kit box on each tractor. This
needs to be filled-in each time a tractor is used.
Faults: Please advise OBC staff of any fault or damage to the
club tractors. Faults and/or damage needs to be attended to as
quickly as possible so other members are not inconvenienced.
