Rowan Ramsay MP supports Tacoma Marina berth

A Fisherman's Memorial Promenade and Passenger Terminal is being planned as part of a community marina facility for Lincoln Cove at Port Lincoln.
The Tacoma Preservation Society (TPS) is making application to the Building Better Regions Fund under the Infrastructure Projects Stream for $140,000 to ensure a pontoon floatation device is established alongside a long-term berth for the South Australian Historic Tuna Clipper - MFV Tacoma.
The Lincoln Cove Marina is one of the busiest waterways in Australia, with continued activity by over 350 vessels regularly utilising the marina. This vastly increases during sea faring events, such as the Adelaide to Lincoln Yacht Race and the Lincoln Week Sailing Regatta.
The Marina experience while containing many interesting features, presently caters poorly to pedestrian traffic and the Tacoma Preservation Society hopes to change this. Its objective is to maintain public access to the waterfront without compromising safety. Marina activities will be enhanced by having greater access to the site by both land and water.
