Our new tinny provides the DEG River Ranger team with new access to areas on the river that were otherwise inaccessible by land through hostile landholders' gates and tracks.
The tinny is an absolutely essential tool for the team's completion of the contract they have with NSW Dept. Planning and Environment to map nguu (Melaleuca trichostachya Lindl. or Melaleuca bracteata F.Muell) swamp paperbark or tea trees along the Barwon River for approx. 80kms of the Baawan upstream and downstream of Walgett.
For tinny nerds ours is a 2023 Stacer 359 Skimma with a 2023 Yamaha Marine F5SMHA-5 motor and a 2023 Telwater 749 ATM Short S L/Skid trailer. Thanks to Senior Ranger Ernie Sands for picking it out.
